Course Description

Beginners chess course package

“Igor Smirnov’s chess course: “The Grandmaster’s Secrets” offers a crystal clear approach to self-improvement on a practical level.”

– Konstantin Fedoseev (USA)

“GM Smirnov will guide you in this course and teach you how to begin and how to progress, with his own system from the beginning to the end.”

– TARRAF Tarraf (Lebanon)

Every chess player wants to improve himself and make progress, however, one of the biggest problems is to understand how to do it.

The usual ways of training give very slow progress and even sometimes these are completely ineffective. Finding a GOOD chess coach is also a huge problem. During my chess career as a player and as a coach I have thought about an effective way of learning all the time.

That’s why I decided to develop a complete chess course; Introducing our top selling chess course “The Grandmaster’s secrets”. With pride I can say that this course will give you only the concrete skills (no more pointless knowledge!).





What are the requirements?

  • PGN viewer required for the practical part
  • Desire to become a better chess player

What will you get from the chess course?

  • The correct thinking method that should be used during games, which will allow you to find the best moves in any position. A concrete guide on what and how exactly you should study to become a strong player.
  • You will know how to use all the knowledge which you already have to finally get concrete results. An account of experiences and practical recommendations from a lot of successful players (Grandmasters).
  • Not only the chess recommendations, but also the secrets of the professional players (Grandmasters) about how to prepare for tournaments, how to prepare for the game and so on…
  • You will know how to learn chess effectively.
  • You will stop making blunders.
  • You will be able to calculate variations quickly and precisely.
  • You will know how to create an opening repertoire properly.
  • You will save years of effort and get fast progress.
  • You will fully understand the psychological factors necessary for success in chess.

  • And many other things…

  Practical Part
Task 1 Practical

There are some special games in a “Games” folder which illustrate the ideas of the course “The Grandmaster’s secrets”.

Your task is to study these games and to understand how the course’s ideas could be applied in different situations. So you should understand deeply the reason of each move made by a Grandmaster in the given games. You should answer to yourself a question “why this move is the best” in every position.

Focus your attention only on the moves of a winner.

I have commented these games, so you will realize easily which principle was used by a player in every situation.

Once again, you should deeply understand the reason of EVERY move in these games for a winner side (from the first move till the last).
