Chess Openings for White: English Opening with IM Milovan Ratkovic

English Opening Mastermind with IM Milovan Ratkovic GDN

Renowned coach IM Milovan Ratkovic reveals a complete and professional chess opening repertoire for White in the English Opening.

Every single response is covered and you’re guaranteed to get solid positions with a slight edge.

Maybe you’re a positional player who wants to model a legend like Botvinnik, Karpov, Andersson, or Petrosian…

Or maybe you’re a creative attacker looking for fresh attacking positions… and to avoid the mind-numbing theory that 1.e4 players are forced to memorize… sort of like how Kasparov, Fischer, or Aronian did…

The solution to all of these problems is to give the English Opening a try!

Positional maestros love it and creative attackers often save it as a deadly surprise weapon.

In this complete English Opening repertoire developed by International Master Milovan Ratkovic from Serbia you’ll get 10 hours of video training explaining all of the:

  • Plans.
  • Theory.
  • Main ideas.
  • A comprehensive set of PGNs to help you review the lines in your favorite chess software.

3 Weapons in the English Opening to Score More Points in Tournaments…

  • The Easy-to-Learn (but POWERFUL) Botvinnik System! This system developed by the Godfather of the Soviet school has you building an unbreakable pawn wedge in the center and then pawn storming the kingside before black has a chance to respond (absolutely deadly at club level!)
  • The Neo-Catalan…Kramnik’s DEADLIEST Weapon! Prevent black from entering a solid Queen’s Gambit setup with this rare, but deadly system the Russian genius used several times to crush legends like Aronian, Caruana and many others!
  • The Super RARE (but Carlsen-like) 4.e3!? vs Symmetrical Variation! Ready to play for a win? With this line, you break the symmetry immediately, saddle black with a bad bishop, AND give yourself a clear plan (while black is totally confused!)

english opening plansWhether you’re a positional player looking to both improve your results or even a creative attacker who hates the theory involved in playing 1.e4… you can do no better than to take up the English Opening as your deadliest weapon.
