What will I learn from this course?

- Arkadij takes you through a 2700 slugfest between Dubov and Mamedyarov. Sacrifices, counter-sacrifices, and mysterious moves… who do you think is winning here? (Diagram)
- Total Domination. In the first lesson, Naiditsch explains the finer points of evaluation and strategy using an Aronian masterclass. You understand the value of space and activity… now get the insights that let you see the long-reaching consequences of every move and plan for success.
Profit from every exchange, use tactics to make strategy work, and discover how to put your opponent in virtual zugzwang!
