Tal’s Attacking Secrets with IM Valeri Lilov

Tal’s Attacking Secrets With Im Valeri Lilov

Attacking chess is something that can MAKE or BREAK your game. If done correctly it may lead to spectacular victories, rating boost, titles, and so forth. However, if done improperly [the way many club players do it] it may lead to lost material, blunders, disappointments, and defeats.

That’s not the road you want to take…

The key to becoming a strong attacker is to learn from the best and to have a SYSTEM that you can apply in your own games. This is the most reliable and consistent approach.

And… there is simply no better attacking player than Mikhail Tal.

Tal’s Attacking Secrets With Im Valeri Lilov

Many consider Tal a pure genius of chess, mostly due to his brilliant tactical play. Tal’s incredible originality, improvisation, and ability to “think things into existence” greatly contributed to his World Championship title.

That’s why “The Magician from Riga” is the perfect role model for attacking chess. By mimicking his attacking chess and borrowing some of Tal’s incredible techniques and ideas, you will take your chess to a whole new level.

In this course, IM Valeri Lilov goes over some of the most instructive Tal’s games and explains some of the most effective techniques that Tal utilized to demolish his opponents – time-after-time.

For him, chess is science and the outcome simply depends on the right combination of ingredients. IM Lilov is a step-by-step kind of guy, and that’s why he covers everything from “elements of attack” and “powerplay” to “how it all works together” all in one course.

By the end of this course you will have a solid understanding of attacking chess, and with a little practice be able to deliver a winning blow into your opponent’s camp a game after game.
