The Anna Rudolf Master Method
Anna has put a TON of work and research into discovering the 5 biggest barriers stopping most players from reaching 2000 Elo and beyond. The Anna Rudolf Method tells you how to turn these often undiagnosed weaknesses into game-winning strengths.
The 5 fixes that will turbocharge your success:
Banish blunders: Blunders are the #1 rating killers. Whether you’re dropping pieces or overlooking positional mistakes, the root cause of blunders is the same. Anna reveals her technique for keeping total awareness at all times!
Take your chances: finding winning moves is much tougher in a real game than when solving tactics. Any would-be helper standing by your board shouting “Mate in 3!” would get kicked out! Discover how to search and destroy your target at the first opportunity.
Proven winning plans: when you’re thinking what to play, the moves you see are affected by your plan. If you’re thinking about how to attack the kingside, you’ll probably miss the winning pawn break on the queenside. Anna explains the ideas behind the most powerful attacking formations, positional strategies and endgame plans to make sure you’re always focused on the strongest moves.
One step ahead: If you’re thinking about what you’re trying to achieve and ignoring your opponent’s plans, you’re going to get a nasty shock. Instead, learn how to read your rival’s plans and use it against them!
Competitive success: It’s no good being a great chess player if you fall apart when it counts. A huge percentage of games are lost due to either complacency or irrational fear. Learn how
Atalik’s All-Around Guide for Club Players – The Atalik Method
Ekaterina Atalik is a Russian-Turkish chess player, who holds the titles of International Master (IM) and Woman Grandmaster (WGM).
According to IM Atalik, there is a rule of thumb which helps to differentiate between the middlegame and other stages of the game. According to this rule of thumb, the middlegame starts when the pieces are developed and the basic pawn structure is defined.
Atalik’s All-Around Guide covers:
Exceptional chess. Good players know all the rules. Great players know when to break them. Ekaterina explains how to win by finding exceptions to the classic principles, including a stunning Kramnik win where he refused to castle.
Knowledge of structures. Pawn structures dictate your entire strategy. IM Atalik explains exactly what to do in common structures such as exploiting hanging pawns as Fischer did in one of the most beautiful positional games of all-time against Spassky: Nd4! Qf8 19.Nxe6! fxe6 20.e4!
Endgame strategy. Pawn, knight, bishop, rook and queen endings are all covered as Ekaterina shows you where to place your pieces, which pawn formations will give you an easy win and even the best king position in each situation. Essential knowledge!
The Melekhina Master Method
The Melekhina Master Method will help you cultivate your style of play based on fundamentals, rather than focusing on an opening repertoire that may be a bad fit. Along the way, you’ll be encouraged to reflect on your chess preferences in shaping your practical play for ultimate success.
If you’re trying to get the maximum improvement in your chess with just one hour of study a week that’s exactly what the Melekhina Method offers.

Endgame Memorization Shortcuts from the 2018 US Champion – IM Nazi Paikidze
Most club players spend far too little time studying chess endgames.
They are not familiar with essential theoretical endgames, nor do they focus on developing good chess endgame understanding and technique.
However, decent endgame skills are vital for any aspiring chess player. They can enable you to win apparently equal positions with only a little imbalance, or save half a point from clearly worse positions.
80/20 Tactics Multiplier: The Scotch Opening – IM Irina Bulmaga
IM Irina Bulmaga equips you with expert knowledge of the key tactical and strategic ideas in the Scotch Opening – the fantastically powerful weapon Garry Kasparov turned to in his World Championship matches against Karpov and Short.
The Scotch gives you an important psychological edge against 1…e5 players who are comfortable playing the Ruy Lopez and Italian Game, taking them into uncharted territory where you call the shots.
