                    [description] => <span class="dropcap">A</span> strong opening repertoire is a MUST if one wants to cross the 1800-1900 ELO points.

A chess player cannot cross this rating without a strong and sound opening repertoire.

This course can help you create a solid repertoire easily.
<h3>Is this course right for me?</h3>
The course is suitable for intermediate level players, but it will be helpful for advanced level players, too. Even if your ELO is 1900+, this course will help you improve your opening skills.

In fact, this course was prepared in collaboration with former Junior World Champion GM Alex Ipatov, who is an expert in the Grunfeld defense showing his favourite lines. Therefore, this course will be suitable for players of ALL strength.

If you want to attack from the opening instead of defending, then this course is for you.
<h3>A Dynamic Response to 1.d4</h3>
The Grunfeld Defense has always been a popular choice with players who aim to counterattack with the black pieces.

It is one of the most aggressive openings for Black against White’s first move 1.d4.

It arises from the moves: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5
<h3>Learn the powerful attacking opening</h3>
You will have a very powerful and attacking system against the first move of White d4.

Some lines are complicated, however the similarity between the different lines makes it easier for you to start implementing this new opening system in your games.
<h3>Powerful Practical tasks</h3>
It is necessary to put the received knowledge into practice. There are 8 practical tasks (over 100 games) in this course which will help you to understand and remember the ideas of the course better.

The training program has a detailed explanation on what and exactly how you should do the practical tasks.
<h3>Learn anywhere, anytime and on any device</h3>
The course can be accessed in ANY device (even in non-windows device).

Overview

A strong opening repertoire is a MUST if one wants to cross the 1800-1900 ELO points.

A chess player cannot cross this rating without a strong and sound opening repertoire.

This course can help you create a solid repertoire easily.

Is this course right for me?

The course is suitable for intermediate level players, but it will be helpful for advanced level players, too. Even if your ELO is 1900+, this course will help you improve your opening skills.

In fact, this course was prepared in collaboration with former Junior World Champion GM Alex Ipatov, who is an expert in the Grunfeld defense showing his favourite lines. Therefore, this course will be suitable for players of ALL strength.

If you want to attack from the opening instead of defending, then this course is for you.

A Dynamic Response to 1.d4

The Grunfeld Defense has always been a popular choice with players who aim to counterattack with the black pieces.

It is one of the most aggressive openings for Black against White’s first move 1.d4.

It arises from the moves: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5

Learn the powerful attacking opening

You will have a very powerful and attacking system against the first move of White d4.

Some lines are complicated, however the similarity between the different lines makes it easier for you to start implementing this new opening system in your games.

Powerful Practical tasks

It is necessary to put the received knowledge into practice. There are 8 practical tasks (over 100 games) in this course which will help you to understand and remember the ideas of the course better.

The training program has a detailed explanation on what and exactly how you should do the practical tasks.
