“I was doing well but missed his idea and he tricked me…this guy is a really tricky player!”

You’ve heard such things right? Maybe you’ve even been the victim of such a player.

The ability to find resources that shock, unsettle, and strike fear in your opponents is a rarely discussed skill of really successful tournament players.

Whether it’s that subtle pawn thrust that “seems” to come from nowhere yet leaves his queen without squares, or clever opening preparation with engines of monstrous strength…

…or even the ability to stay calm when losing, so you can launch a devastating counterattack and snatch victory.

These are essential skills, but rarely taught…

Until now.

In Middlegame Trickery, GM Daniel Gormally gives you almost 7 hours of training that’ll turn you into a psychologically strong, street-smart tournament player who is ready for anything.
