The world chess champions surely have contributed to the development of the chess game. Fischer, Tal, Botvinnik, Spassky, Kasparov, Karpov, Anand, Carlsen, and several other world champions and great chess players revolutionized the game by bringing a lot of new ideas. It is important for every chess player to not only watch the games of these players, but to learn from them!
We should also learn that these players have learnt from each other as well. The chess game has had many rivalries like Botvinnik-Smyslov, Botvinnik-Tal, Spassky-Fischer, Kasparov-Karpov, nevertheless these players never forgot to learn from each other. For instance, there is this quote:
“By this measure (on the gap between Fischer & his contemporaries), I consider him the greatest world champion.” – Garry Kasparov.
When even the greatest chess players value their strong opponents and rivals and learn from each other, it is very important for a club-level player or an amateur player to learn from them. We in RCA have always aimed for that – to help you learn from the great players. And that’s why we prepared the following courses: “Play like Fischer”, “Magnus Carlsen: The Journey of a World Champion”, and “Mastering the Middlegame in Kasparov’s Style”. Studying their games is an essential part of a player’s path to serious progress.
We have decided to help you even more – we have combined these 3 courses into a single bundle called “World Champions Bundle”. The actual total price of these courses is $267 USD. But with this new bundle, you will get them all for only $179 USD (getting $88 USD discount, more than 32%!).
Note: if you have already studied one or two of the courses from this bundle, you can get a 40% discount on any of the other courses from the bundle. All you have to do is use the coupon “wchampion” and get a massive 40% discount on any of the other courses from the bundle. This is a limited-period offer and will be valid only till Sunday, 18 November (inclusive). If you don’t know how to use a coupon please see here.
Speaking of world champions, let’s not forget about the ongoing World Chess Championship Match between Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana. The score is 2-2 each at the end of 4 games, all games being drawn. Both players had minor advantage and a potential victory in hand in the initial games, nevertheless, the stakes are high and the pressure is unimaginable! Don’t forget to write in the comments below your impressions on the Match so far and who you think will win and why.
Today our guest coach IM Asaf Givon has prepared a very instructive video for you, analysing a game between Carlsen and Caruana in the 2011 Biel Chess Festival, where Magnus made a brilliant exchange sacrifice that won the game for him. You will see (and learn from) the calm and strategic play of the current World Champion.
