Positional sacrifice is a very delicate, yet very powerful technique that mostly advanced chess players perform. Some of the greatest chess minds in history of the game employed the positional sacrifice as the weapon of choice to win tournaments, matches and even World Championship titles.
Number one chess player and the reigning World Champion Magnus Carlsen is no exception. He proves over and over again, against the toughest competition that the positional sacrifice is something that can blow up an otherwise equally looking position and score a crucial win.The amateur players typically DO NOT understand the relative value of chess pieces well enough and prefer to simply keep the material.

“Attacking chess is something that truly separates the greatest minds of all time from the rest: Mikhail Tal, Bobby Fischer, Garry Kasparov, and now Magnus Carlsen…”
In this 3 hour long video course, GM Sipke Ernst, a strong attacking player himself, will teach you the art of attacking chess. He goes in great detail analyzing the attacking techniques that players such as Magnus Carlsen, Vishy Anand, Mikhail Tal, Sergey Karjakin, Boris Spassky, and Veselin Topalov have successfully used to win games.
GM Ernst will show exactly how Grandmasters think in complex, razor sharp positions, when everything depends on a single move. In such positions, any little inaccuracy can cause a defeat. It’s like walking on the minefield, along with your opponent, and waiting for someone to make a single wrong step.
The good news is that after going over this course you will have a map in your mind that will guide you through the labyrinth of move choices reducing the possibility of mistakes. That’s something your opponent may not have.
After carefully studying this course you will gain an edge over your competition, which will allow you to become a much better attacking player while picking up a handful of rating points in the process!

“What is the main difference between a Grandmaster and an amateur? It is the understanding of positions on a very fundamental level, or what’s called the positional understanding.”
A good positional understanding allows to:
- Rapidly evaluate any kinds of chess positions
- Instantly come up with a winning game plan
- Assess which pieces should be left alone, and which need to be exchanged
- Determine which pieces need to be improved and how that can be done
- Find weaknesses in the opponent’s position and exploit them
The problem that most amateur players face nowadays is the lack of positional understanding. Most players work on tactics, openings and endgames but fail to improve perhaps the most important part of the game: the Middlegame. That’s quite illogical, taking into account that the majority of chess games are decided in this stage.

CHAPTER 5 – Advanced Techniques
GM Alexander Ipatov does an excellent job explaining complicated concepts in an easy to follow manner. While, the most chess books and DVDs will only teach you the move order and nothing else, Alexander in his 3-hour lecture goes through 36 most critical rook endgame positions that any player from an amateur to a Grandmaster must know.
In this DVD, GM Ipatov teaches you how to think and how to make right decisions in the endgame. Not only you will learn the right moves, but also you will get a high quality Grandmaster’s explanation of why that is the case. It will help you to structure your thinking and you will be able to play not only these but also other similar endgames much more precisely and effectively.
After watching this DVD, you won’t have to worry about rook endgames anymore. You will learn the most effective PLANS and IDEAS that can be used to win or draw positions that you previously considered drawn or lost.

CHAPTER 2 – Typical Techniques

CHAPTER 4 – Advanced Rook and Pawn Endgames

That’s a good strategy if you are already 2400-2500 rated. If not, then intuition is a very dangerous thing to trust. Most under 2200 rated players can achieve dramatically better results if they evaluate the positions using the same algorithm over and over again.
To help you with mastering the evaluation of positions we have invited GM Misa Pap, who is sharing over two decades of position analysis expertise in this video course.
