In this 4.5 hour course the effervescent duo of Miss Strategy (IM Anna Rudolf) and Miss Tactics (IM Sopiko Guramishivili) look at the early years of Magnus Carlsen with 16 of his most impressive games on the way to becoming the youngest ever Grandmaster, aged 13.
Miss Strategy and Miss Tactics give their opinions and explanations of each move and idea, helping the viewer to learn tactical ideas and positional concepts from a true chess genius.
As well as the brilliant games, Anna and Sopiko give the background to Magnus’ development with biographical notes on his year out of school, special invites to international tournaments and his training with GM Simen Agdestein.
This course comes with the PGN of all the featured games and puzzles for you to test yourself against.
Highly recommended for fans of great games and chess history!
