Course Description

Many players don’t know clearly what to do in the middlegame. In an opening stage one needs to develop his pieces, but after that, it’s much harder to find the right moves.

There are many tutorials that cover different chess strategical and tactical motifs, but there’s no single and clear guide. This course is designed to provide such a guide to you.
