Why should you study this course?

Well, let me remind you that this course is not about Garry Kasparov’s life but about the successful techniques and ideas that he used in his games to win; and most importantly, about how YOU (and almost any chess player) can apply them in your own games to beat your opponents!

Also, I think you will understand better if the author of the course himself explain why you should study this course. 🙂 IM Asaf Givon has prepared a video, where he has explained the contents of the course and what you can learn from the course. You can watch the video below:
 

 
P.S. The course can be accessed in ANY device (even in non-windows device). We’re providing you with the course in e-book format (PDF) and you can study the video lessons separately as well. Find more about this here.

    Hello Igor Smirnov, I have prepared thinking system thoroughly .and o have to play very good games just by following it. However in some games when I have only 3-4 minutes left on clock I don’t know what happens to me . I used to forget everything and I don’t able to use my thinking system because it takes time for me to good move .And then I start making moves which comes into my mind and blunder then. I want you to suggest something regarding this

    • Hi Anup,

      When you are short on time, it’s fine to skip many steps in your thinking system. However, you should stick to most critical elements:
      1. attack
      2. make ‘anti-blunder’ check before every move.

      • Anup rajawat

        ThaNq Igor just one more question if we don’t have attacking move what to do think for principles of improving pieces or something else ?

        • RCA_moderator

          Yes, Igor calls it principle of maximum activity. If all the pieces are not at maximum activity. You can move the least active piece.
          Once you have the pieces at maximum activity, naturally, tactics and attacking opportunities will be available.

    Hi Igor, when doing anti blunder technique or looking for attacking moves for myself, you suggested mentally splitting the board on my and opponent’s half. However, why do you recommend doing this, since sometimes opponent could attack you from afar? For example, in some of my games it happened that after I played a move, an opponents queen made a move on their side of the board, on the second rank, yet she double-attacked me from afar, across an open diagonal and an open file simultaneously.

    • RCA_moderator

      Hi Lovro,
      GM Igor asks you to split the board when you are looking for attacking moves. So when you are looking for attacking moves, you should focus on opponent’s half of the board.

      You can perform the anti-blunder check by looking at forced moves for your opponent and moves that create a threat to your piece, king or critical square.

    Hello Igor , I have started studying your course “Your Winning Plan ” . But before this course I have studied positional understanding and winning the middlegame course thoroughly. After studying the first 2 chapter of “YWP it is getting very confusing for me .like in another 2 courses I have simple plan how to play when you have aa particula pawn structure . But in “winning the plan “Your are suggesting some thing different .If You can attack in centre do it.Please clarify everything . Wich should be on top . Weaknesses or pawn structures or particular flank

    • Lovro Glavina

      Hi Anup! He explained the same idea in Winning the Middlegame and Your Winning Plan. Centre forward player/If you can attack in center-do it, remember? So you should attack there by centralizing your pieces and breaking through there, and then transfering it into a certain flank. If it’s not possible to attack in the center(french defense), or have good enough control over the center already(lot of open sicilians), you may attack on a flank. Just remember the main idea: Figure out general direction what you need to do and how you’ll do it, and stick to general principles and everything else follows easily. For example, in advanced french, you can’t attack in center, so you simply attack on a part of the board where you have advantage in the main idea of chess game – activity of pieces. In IQP, you play in the center according to the principle of center and centralize pieces, and possibly prepare d5 in the future. It’s important to not overcomplicate matters but instead stick to general ideas, because other ideas follow from the general ideas. In fact, your basis should be GM Secret’s course. In that course, GM Smirnov gives you the important base. His other courses are an upgrade of the base basically. GM Positional Understanding(explains base principles in detail), Your Winning Plan(General direction for middlegame in more detail), Calculate Till Mate(more in depth calculation explanation), Self Taught Grandmaster(a huge upgrade of the lesson “how to learn chess” from GM Secrets) etc etc. If you haven’t studied GM Secrets, then I strongly suggest you to do so and fully automate his system recommended there. It is the FUNDAMENTAL basis, and all other courses will just polish that base, make it better.
      Good luck!

        Hi Anup,
        GM Igor may not be able to answer all the questions.
