Lifetime Middlegame Ideas with GM Miloje Ratkovic

One of the most sought-after chess coaches on the scene, Grandmaster Miloje Ratkovic isn’t one of those pampered Super GMs who don’t play in opens… don’t need to win tournaments to pay the bills… gets huge appearance fees…

No, not at all.

He’s an “in-the-trenches” GM who plays regularly in strong open tournaments where there is no safety net and huge competition for first prize.

And he does exceptionally well.
