  1. Kesaris Aggelos (Greece)
    5 out of 5

    I am A. kesaris from Greece. I study chess about 10 years and about 4 to 8 hours a day. My chess results were not so good as I expect. It was obvious that i do something wrong.
    I start training with some Greek Gms and they help me a lot.But, I make a real progress in chess when I start see the free video lessons of mr. I. Smirnov and especially when I study the Grandmaster secret! No one else, really, give before this concrete system of thinking… After that I really enjoy to play chess games and I know that I make the best moves in the position.
    With the new chess course of mr. Smirnov self-taught grandmaster I can organize everything and perfectly!
    The other really important thing with this course is that he gives to us the theory and the knowledge, which we need to learn in different levels. The difficult think is not to find the material. The difficult thing is what and when we must learn something.
    I love psychology. Especially the human’s psychology. It is very effective in real chess games. I start psychology books but I didn’t always take useful information. With this course I solve a lot of my questions!
    I am chess trainer. I had create a system of training and the structure of material. Now I am 100% sure that I am in the correct way and I completely know what I can say to children and how to prepare them to be ready for the next chess level, starting study mr. Smirnov’s chess courses.
    The conclusion is that I am really enjoy to study and play chess regularly and now I do it with more success!
    I finish in 1st place in my last tournament! So I will take the opportunity and say that your course helps me a lot! I can prove it with practical results!
