GM Boris Alterman

Nowadays, everyone is super prepped up in openings, you might be too, and you’re likely getting good positions out of them, but it’s in the middle game where battles are decided. In this magnificent video series, GM Boris Alterman (ELO 2611) carefuly takes you through all the key aspects and secrets of middle game play.

In this series you’re not only going to learn the essentials of middle play, you’re going to master critical topics such as:

  • The Positional Sacrifice, when a quiet sacrifice can create permanent and lasting damaging to your opponent’s position.
  • The Art of Defense, you’ll learn all the resources you have to deflect your rivals attack with 6 videos on the often ignored but hugely important topic.
  • Strong outposts, find how to create and exploit strong outposts.
  • Opposite side castling attacks, always exciting but hard to master, GM Alterman shows you how to deal and win these attacks.

And so much more!

Imagine what’s going to happen when a club player gets familiar and masters these concepts in tournaments or online play. Their unsuspecting rivals get torn apart!

In total, you’ll receive an amazing pack of over 70 videos, with 34+ hours of amazing instructional material. All in a super pack which is by far the best value option.
A truly awesome collection that we’re sure will help you reach master level!

I was not familiar with Alterman but I did see that he has a lot of instructional material out there. I decided to buy this course because I feel that the middle game is the heart of chess and up to this point, my middle game play really needs to be strengthened. I am very impressed with what I have been able to learn from the games that Boris presents. This is a well organized course. Every game is well presented so I will say that it is flawless! I particularly benefited from the 8 videos on the Bishop pair. You will really learn from Boris how to slowly, slowly squeeze your opponent as you outplay them in the middle game to a won ending!” – John M. (verified buyer) – 1 Feb 2019
