Chameleons are special animals as they have the ability to change colors. They react to different temperatures and other conditions and also adjust their colors as camouflage.

<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>The ability to stay flexible and to adapt is also vital for chess players.</strong></span>

When choosing your opening, your playing style and your overall strategy for the next game, you are well-advised to take your opponent’s specific traits into account.

Today, with strong engines and huge databases at our fingertips, it has become more important than ever to be well-prepared to meet your opponent.

That's why, according to GM Sethuraman, a universal style is key. If you only play one opening with one specific variation against 1.e4, for example, your opponent can easily prepare against you before the game has even started.

If you are a strong positional player, but your tactical abilities are rather weak, experienced opponents will strive for sharp positions with countless tactical complications in their game against you.

In short, modern technology has also reached the world of chess and allows you to figure out the strengths and weaknesses of a player before the game actually starts.

<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>In this Master Method, Indian GM Sethuraman provides you with the knowledge and the most important skills you need to develop a universal style</strong></span>.

If you want to become unpredictable in the opening, if you want to play equally strong in tactical as well as strategic positions, and if you want to become a more complete player who is also well-equipped for the endgame and psychological battles, this course is for you.

<h2><span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">How is this course going to help me?</span></h2>
Many ambitious chess players never get anywhere near their potential, held back by some unseen force despite their hard work and dedication.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

In this extraordinary 15-hour course, GM S.P. Sethuraman (2664)<strong>,</strong> one of the world’s Top 100 players, has put together the definitive training program on his approach to chess mastery.

GM Sethuraman has identified 14 critical areas of chess understanding and strength, explaining exactly how to improve in each.

You will learn both the advanced chess techniques and psychological strength you need to dominate in chess competitions.

<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Here's part of what you'll learn with this course:</strong></span>

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;"><b>The Classic Approach to Opening Preparation</b></span>

<b><span style="font-weight: 400;">You’ll learn a powerful method for researching the history, trends and hidden ideas of any opening (</span>Bobby Fischer used this research method and — especially in the openings — stood head and shoulders above his peers… and, so can you!<span style="font-weight: 400;">)</span></b>

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;"><b>Flexibility in the Openings</b></span>

<b><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">GM Sethuraman reveals how to seamlessly switch between opening systems, becoming </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">impossible </span></span><span style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;">to predict</span>. You’ll explore and master Anish Giri’s technique which </span>makes your <i>opponent’s </i>preparation a COMPLETE waste of time - while <i>you </i>are prepared (and armed to the teeth!)</b>

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;"><b>How to Choose the PERFECT Openings for YOU</b></span>

<img class="wp-image-510364 size-full alignright" title="Train Like A Chameleon: The Sethuraman Master Method" src="https://cdn1.ichess.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/flexibility-in-the-opening-diagram.png" alt="Train Like A Chameleon: The Sethuraman Master Method" width="300" height="301" />

<b><span style="font-weight: 400;">Which openings — which MIGHT be equal </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">objectively</span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;"> —  will leave your opponent squirming and uncomfortable? </span>Discover how Kramnik - a 1.d4 player - switched to 1.e4 with the sole purpose of torturing his opponent’s French defense with secret prep (see diagram for his 15.0-0-0 idea - planning 16.Bxh7+!!) — whose predictable opening could you torture if you knew this secret?</b>

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">How to Play for a Win with Black</span>

GM Sethuraman recommends adding chess openings for Black to your repertoire where White has no solid setup to achieve a simple and solid draw. In must-win situations, he suggests playing the Pirc Defense (1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6) and the Modern Defense (1.e4 g6).

Both openings promise Black more active play than many other openings. Black is able to enter unbalanced positions, which allows him to aim for more than equality.

<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>The insights and advice contained in the GM Sethuraman Method will save you from years of hit-and-miss learning</strong></span> and give you key techniques you can put into practice right away.

Study hard and, by the end of the 15 hours, you will be a razor-sharp, mentally tough competitor, ready to conquer any challenge.

Train Like a Chameleon: The Sethuraman Master Method

Train Like A Chameleon: The Sethuraman Master Method
GM S.P Sethuraman

Chameleons are special animals as they have the ability to change colors. They react to different temperatures and other conditions and also adjust their colors as camouflage.

The ability to stay flexible and to adapt is also vital for chess players.

When choosing your opening, your playing style and your overall strategy for the next game, you are well-advised to take your opponent’s specific traits into account.

Today, with strong engines and huge databases at our fingertips, it has become more important than ever to be well-prepared to meet your opponent.

That’s why, according to GM Sethuraman, a universal style is key. If you only play one opening with one specific variation against 1.e4, for example, your opponent can easily prepare against you before the game has even started.

If you are a strong positional player, but your tactical abilities are rather weak, experienced opponents will strive for sharp positions with countless tactical complications in their game against you.

In short, modern technology has also reached the world of chess and allows you to figure out the strengths and weaknesses of a player before the game actually starts.

In this Master Method, Indian GM Sethuraman provides you with the knowledge and the most important skills you need to develop a universal style.

If you want to become unpredictable in the opening, if you want to play equally strong in tactical as well as strategic positions, and if you want to become a more complete player who is also well-equipped for the endgame and psychological battles, this course is for you.

How is this course going to help me?

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

It doesn’t have to be that way.

In this extraordinary 15-hour course, GM S.P. Sethuraman (2664), one of the world’s Top 100 players, has put together the definitive training program on his approach to chess mastery.

GM Sethuraman has identified 14 critical areas of chess understanding and strength, explaining exactly how to improve in each.

You will learn both the advanced chess techniques and psychological strength you need to dominate in chess competitions.

Here’s part of what you’ll learn with this course:

The Classic Approach to Opening Preparation

You’ll learn a powerful method for researching the history, trends and hidden ideas of any opening (Bobby Fischer used this research method and — especially in the openings — stood head and shoulders above his peers… and, so can you!)

Flexibility in the Openings

GM Sethuraman reveals how to seamlessly switch between opening systems, becoming impossible to predict. You’ll explore and master Anish Giri’s technique which makes your opponent’s preparation a COMPLETE waste of time – while you are prepared (and armed to the teeth!)

How to Choose the PERFECT Openings for YOU

Train Like A Chameleon: The Sethuraman Master Method

Which openings — which MIGHT be equal objectively —  will leave your opponent squirming and uncomfortable? Discover how Kramnik – a 1.d4 player – switched to 1.e4 with the sole purpose of torturing his opponent’s French defense with secret prep (see diagram for his 15.0-0-0 idea – planning 16.Bxh7+!!) — whose predictable opening could you torture if you knew this secret?

How to Play for a Win with Black

GM Sethuraman recommends adding chess openings for Black to your repertoire where White has no solid setup to achieve a simple and solid draw. In must-win situations, he suggests playing the Pirc Defense (1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6) and the Modern Defense (1.e4 g6).

Both openings promise Black more active play than many other openings. Black is able to enter unbalanced positions, which allows him to aim for more than equality.

The insights and advice contained in the GM Sethuraman Method will save you from years of hit-and-miss learning and give you key techniques you can put into practice right away.

Study hard and, by the end of the 15 hours, you will be a razor-sharp, mentally tough competitor, ready to conquer any challenge.
