In this course, GM Daniel Naroditsky reveals his chess training program and his way of improving on each area:<strong> how to build an opening repertoire that suits you</strong>; the best ways to improve your tactical ability and how to learn the endgame.

As someone who has experienced phenomenal success and rapid improvement, Daniel’s advice on how to apply what he teaches is invaluable and his focus on principles makes this advanced material accessible to any determined improver.

With this chess training program, beginners and advanced players will be able to learn how to select an opening repertoire that's appropriate to their playing style.

You will also be able to learn how to punish those players who don't respect the principles of the opening, those opening rebels who tend to fall behind in development, don't castle very quickly or move the same piece more than once in the opening stage.

 	<li>You’ll learn how Daniel threw the position off balance with the killer sacrificial blow 10.Nd5!! and crushed a 2568 rated GM (Daniel’s imbalance method is finally exposed!)</li>

Daniel is a young grandmaster

Daniel is a young grandmaster once considered a prodigy. This course promises much in its content and covers traditional topics like the opening, middlegame and endings, but also more esoteric things like how to study the opening, initiative, intuition, imbalances, and talking to your pieces!, and Daniel does deliver on these. However, what I found hard to deal with was the slow pace of the course, particularly because Daniel loves to go off topic into funny anecdotes or political comments. Once or twice would have been OK, but he does it too often. For this reason I would rate this course only as OK.

The Naroditsky Method – Gm Daniel Naroditsky
GM Daniel Naroditsky

In this course, GM Daniel Naroditsky reveals his chess training program and his way of improving on each area: how to build an opening repertoire that suits you; the best ways to improve your tactical ability and how to learn the endgame.

As someone who has experienced phenomenal success and rapid improvement, Daniel’s advice on how to apply what he teaches is invaluable and his focus on principles makes this advanced material accessible to any determined improver.

With this chess training program, beginners and advanced players will be able to learn how to select an opening repertoire that’s appropriate to their playing style.

You will also be able to learn how to punish those players who don’t respect the principles of the opening, those opening rebels who tend to fall behind in development, don’t castle very quickly or move the same piece more than once in the opening stage.

What does The Naroditsky Chess Training Method mean for you?

  • You’ll be rubbing your hands with glee whenever you face a crazy, offbeat opening – see how Daniel wipes the smile off a smug 1…g5 player’s face, leaving them devastated using a single idea!
  • You can discover how the great Tigran Petrosian “talked” to his pieces until they flowed like water to collapse the most rock-solid defense. Daniel dissects Tigran’s masterpiece of positional play in chapter 11, uncovering deep strategic ideas that’ll stun 90% of club players.
  • You’ll learn how Daniel threw the position off balance with the killer sacrificial blow 10.Nd5!! and crushed a 2568 rated GM (Daniel’s imbalance method is finally exposed!)
  • You’ll discover the “power chess” principles that Levon Aronian used to simply steamroll Wesley So in a few moves with the black pieces. If you’ve ever wondered how to keep your opponent on the dazed ropes as you prepare the knock-out punch…this lesson is essential viewing!

Includes a 1-hour bonus of Daniel playing online blitz, voicing his thoughts and analysis in real time!

Bonus: Live Blitz with GM Daniel Naroditsky
