Elements of Strategy

In order to seriously improve in chess, we cannot be blitz-only players who keep repeating the same tactical patterns, hoping our opponents fall for tricks.

That’s a surefire way to keep us at the chess club level—forever.

If you want to break through to the expert level or above, you need a real plan.

Elements Of Strategy With Im Boroljub Zlatanovic

Turn your opponent’s moves against them!

How? Every move played creates “holes” in a position. If you can get to theirs before yours fall under attack, all is good!

For that, we can’t just push pieces randomly. A killer middlegame plan is necessary—a clever, simple, and flexible plan that gradually leads you to your goals.

About this Course:

IM Boroljub Zlatanovic presents Elements of Strategy. In this massive 9.5-hour course, IM Zlatanovic, a chess strategy specialist, takes you on a journey and shows how the chess masters carve out their wins, move by move, like solving a jigsaw puzzle!

From creating pawn majorities to activating your king, this course teaches you how to form master middlegame plans where every move has a purpose… and that purpose is to WIN the game.

Here’s what you will learn:

Holes Everywhere

  • Before you make plans in chess, you must find the right ideas—and many times, that means knowing which “holes” to exploit in your enemy’s camp.

Temporary Weaknesses

  • Zlatanovic shows how to accept temporary weaknesses in your own position in order to create permanent ones in those of your opponents’. What’s so good about this? Your opponents will fall right into your proverbial lap, because they will not see the position as you will. Every move needs to be functional, not aesthetic.

Squeeze it like Capablanca.

  • Capablanca loved simple games. He would often make the most obvious moves in the position… and somehow, after about 20-30 moves, his opponents always felt the squeeze. Want to know how? It’s in the course!
