Anatoly Karpov teaches openings, middlegame, and endgame fundamentals for beginner and intermediate chess players in the classic 3-Volume chess DVD series “Russian School of Chess” with the help of experienced Grandmaster and chess trainer GM Roman Dzindzichashvili.

Former World Chess Champion Anatoly Karpov has an uncanny ability to explain chess at a very understandable level, making this 280 minute, 3-Part chess DVD series a truly exhaustive course for the amateur chess player.

About the Author:

Anatoly Karpov is a Russian chess grandmaster and 7 times chess World Champion. Karpov was the official chess world champion from 1975 to 1985 when he was defeated by young and talented Garry Kasparov.

He played three world championship matches against Kasparov from 1986 to 1990, before becoming FIDE World Champion once again after Kasparov decided to break away from FIDE in 1993.

He held the title until 1999 when he also decided to resign his title in protest against FIDE’s new world championship rules. For his decades of domination among the world’s elite of chess players, Karpov is considered by many to be one of the greatest players in history.

Is this course for me?

How good would you be if you had Anatoly Karpov teaching you the secrets of the Russian School of chess?

A classic problem for chess beginners is learning how to conduct the chess opening. You can’t be expected to memorize tens of thousands of lines just so you get to the middlegame alive and avoid all the chess opening tricks.

But you can sidestep chess opening traps and get a great position with a sound chess opening strategy built on the major chess opening principles.

For Anatoly Karpov, chess is “everything: art, science, and sport” and it’s this all-encompassing thinking that leads to his pure, effective approach to playing chess.

Karpov’s Russian School Of Chess
Controlling the center

Whether you want to become a chess opening pro or just score the occasional chess opening quick win, Karpov’s chess opening strategy will have you making a very rapid improvement.

And Roman Dzindzichashvili’s chess philosophy is “if you can’t explain it, you don’t really understand it” which is why he loves teaching chess so much: he helps himself improve as well as his students!

The very famous Russian school of chess has produced hundreds of grandmasters and dozens of world champions. Several thousands of chess coaches teach their students using “the Soviet chess training method.”

GMs Anatoly Karpov and Roman Dzindzichashvili emphasize controlling the center squares (e4, d4, e5, d5) and active development of minor pieces in the opening while being careful not to make too many pawn moves.

Karpov’s incredibly deep understanding of chess combined with GM Dzindzichashvili’s vast experience in chess coaching makes the “Russian School of Chess” a truly unforgettable chess training experience.
