          Taking into account your inexhaustible enthusiasm and willingness to learn chess – I’m absolutely sure you’ll keep progressing in chess. Congrats for the good results you start achieving, and wishing you further success!

          பிறந்தநாள் வாழ்த்துக்கள் 🙂

          1. thankyou so much sir for the your great reply.you are grat teacher.if you were in india in my town i will invite you to party

  2. It’s so nice to see that you listened to my advice and included instructions for OSX/Linux users in your tutorial. I’m also glad to see that you’re using MP4 format for lessons and a copy of PDF for ebooks because that pretty much makes the course fully compatible with both Windows and Unix-based operating systems (Linux and OS X).

    Also, I’ve been told several times that you currently do not have any vacancies in any of the career positions. If that’s true, please tell your technical team to edit https://chess-teacher.com/career/ to reflect that because currently it looks like you’re abundant in vacancies and it could confuse potential applicants.

    1. Hi Jakov,

      1) We are glad that you liked the change.

      2) Thanks for pointing the mistake out. Our technical team will edit the ambiguous text. So currently we do not have vacancies.

  3. i’m curious why I would want to buy this if I already have the Chess24 series by Peter Svidler, the Grunefeld “god.”

    1. Hi Tony,

      Svidler is the “god” of Grunfeld, indeed. If you are satisfied with his course, and get good practical results while playing Grunfeld – there’s no need for you to buy the new RCA’s course.

      At the same time, the “drawback” of 2700-rated players is that they are so far away from 1700 players. Often times top GMs just say what THEY think, without caring about YOUR needs. That’s why RCA’s ‘human’ tutorial can be better than the “god’s” one 🙂

      1. yes igor sir you are right there is very huge difference between peter svidler and us he explains all the things very technically it is very hard to understand the things even a 2400 player cant understand peter svidler.

          1. thanks sir you both igor and you are going great.and doing great job for us.if you were in india i will invite to both of you to party.
