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.

About the Author:

Edward Porper is an International Master, and a 2012 Canadian Olympic Team Member. He became an IM in 1991. He is a professional chess player and coach – teaching chess for many years. IM Porper has won multiple national and international chess tournaments during his 30+ year career, such as: 2011 1st place 1st Holiday Open, San Bernardino, Switzerland; 2009 1st place Canadian Open Championship; 2006 1st place Mannheim Germany; 2006 1st place 32nd Guernsey Chess Festival; 2004 Grandmaster Norm for winning the Liechtenstein Open; 2002 1st place Rajka Open Austria.

How is this course going to help me?

Over the course of 10 hours, you will learn:

  • Strength Finder: Edward explains how to find the strengths in your position, including assessing the potential power of your pieces and calculating the time factor – 2 of the 4 cornerstones of any winning strategy.
  • Unstoppable Attack Strategies: You’ve outplayed your rival. You’ve built a dominant position. Don’t blow it now! Edward teaches you how to find the perfect attack strategy and convert even equal looking positions.
  • A Plan of Three Parts: There will always be immediate concerns that require your attention – the trick is not to let them take your attention away from your grand scheme. Chapter 12 covers how to make sure your big goals are achieved no matter what.

Chess strategy is like a magical adventure: you gaze into the future then march towards your dream outcome, turning your pieces into heroes.
Those who don’t work on their strategy, however, end up as forgotten characters in someone else’s story.
It is time to take your strategy to a whole new level!
