<h2>Satisfied Customers</h2>
"Daniel May be THE best presenter on Ichess (along with Damien Lemos). Both present the material in a logical progression making sure to explain many of the “what if’s” in a given position. This is invaluable to the audience as these “what if’s” sometimes are not clear to we lower rated players. I bought Naroditsy 1 and 2 and while I have a lot to go thru yet I am already hoping for a third from GM Naroditsy. Thank you Ichess for making your products both available and affordable!" - <strong>Robert L. (verified buyer) - 17 Apr 2020</strong>

"Great product.
Naroditsky is an outstanding presenter." - <strong>Mark S. - 13 Apr 2021</strong>

<h2><a href="https://www.ichess.net/shop/achieving-chess-potential-naroditsky-method-2/">Master Method Series #17 (15 h)</a></h2>
So many ambitious chess players never achieve anywhere near their potential, held back by some unseen force despite their hard work and dedication.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

GM Daniel Naroditsky (World Youth Chess Champion in 2007) draws on his experience as both a prodigy and a coach to identify and cure the 15 biggest weaknesses that hold chess players back – many of which you may have never realized were serious problems before.

By understanding why one mistake follows another, why we suddenly miss an obvious move and how we somehow get out pieces tangled up, we become aware of the potential for these mistakes before making them, enabling us to play better chess.

If you have hit a plateau in your chess results, it’s time to cure some of those deep-rooted problems and set your real ability free.

Satisfied Customers

“Daniel May be THE best presenter on Ichess (along with Damien Lemos). Both present the material in a logical progression making sure to explain many of the “what if’s” in a given position. This is invaluable to the audience as these “what if’s” sometimes are not clear to we lower rated players. I bought Naroditsy 1 and 2 and while I have a lot to go thru yet I am already hoping for a third from GM Naroditsy. Thank you Ichess for making your products both available and affordable!” – Robert L. (verified buyer) – 17 Apr 2020

“Great product.
Naroditsky is an outstanding presenter.” – Mark S. – 13 Apr 2021

Master Method Series #17 (15 h)

So many ambitious chess players never achieve anywhere near their potential, held back by some unseen force despite their hard work and dedication.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

GM Daniel Naroditsky (World Youth Chess Champion in 2007) draws on his experience as both a prodigy and a coach to identify and cure the 15 biggest weaknesses that hold chess players back – many of which you may have never realized were serious problems before.

By understanding why one mistake follows another, why we suddenly miss an obvious move and how we somehow get out pieces tangled up, we become aware of the potential for these mistakes before making them, enabling us to play better chess.

If you have hit a plateau in your chess results, it’s time to cure some of those deep-rooted problems and set your real ability free.
