Exploiting Weaknesses With Im Edward Porper

We’ve all been there. Your opponent has a couple of badly placed pieces and his king has no
flight square. Your spider-sense tells you there’s something in the position… but you just can’t find it. In the end you either settle for something boring or rush into a tactic you knew didn’t quite work.
If only you knew the correct method…
IM Porper’s course shows you how to capitalize on all types of weakness – tactical and strategic – using his step-by-step systems.
Want to become ruthless at exploiting your rivals’ weaknesses? Take advantage of your opponents’ mistakes and bring the full point home!

How is this course going to help me?

Below GM level, every game has weaknesses for at least one side. Your job is to spot them, attack them and take advantage of them.
Exploiting Weaknesses With Im Edward PorperThis course shows you how to do all of those things… even showing you how to create weaknesses if none exist.
Over the course of 10 hours, you will learn:
-How to calculate long variations without losing track of any of the pieces. Would you find the win for White in this position? (Note that Black threatens mate in 1!)
-The 1700 slayer. Chapter 15 covers the simple, bloodless way to slay 80% of players rated 1700 or below – just trade off their best pieces and watch their position fall apart! There’s a catch though – their “best” piece is the one that fits Edward’s very specific criteria.
-The trick to “target zoning” – instant recognition of a weak point in your opponent’s position.

IM Porper has managed to create a chess course that is one-of-a-kind: a clearly explained collection of winning techniques and strategies. If you want to exploit a misplaced piece as easily as you would a weak back rank, study this material. It will repay your effort hundreds of times over.
