Strategy Manual with IM Edward Porper
If you’ve ever sat at the board and thought “what now?”, this course is for you.
A good strategy adds a unifying force to your moves, turning small waves into a tsunami that overwhelms your opponent.
But it’s a problem area for most players…
Beginners consider each move on its own merits, intermediate players play the move that achieves a goal maybe 3 or 4 moves away, but Masters may think in strategies that last 20 moves or more.
Ready to take the plunge and see the bigger picture? Well, now there are no excuses… IM Edward Porper has put together his 10-hour Strategy Manual – the complete guide to chess strategy for players rated 1400-2100 Elo.
