How to Find Active Squares for Your Pieces?

Comments: 6

Asaf Givon is an International Grandmaster, who has played for the Kfar Saba team in the first Israeli chess league. He got his IM title in 2013, and he currently has 2 GM norms. And, as you may know, he has prepared several instructive video lessons for you, and a few very instructive premium courses.

Also, I got feedback from many of you (RCA students) that Asaf’s lessons/courses are good and are really instructive – I’m very glad about that! 🙂 That’s why I’ve decided to provide you with something special.

Let me introduce to you, the “Asaf Givon collection” – the three courses (Mastering the Middlegame in Kasparov’s Style, From Opening to Middlegame, and Practical Endgames) by IM Asaf Givon. With this package, you get the three courses for just $139, while the actual sum of them is $187 USD – so you get about $48 discount, which is more than 25%!

Furthermore, to celebrate the birth of this new package, I’m providing you all with an additional 15% discount on the entire package, so you make a total save of about $70 USD – that’s really, really massive! 🙂 Simply, use the coupon “asaf15” when buying the package. If you don’t know how to use a coupon, please see here. This is a limited-period offer and will be valid only till Saturday, 19 May.
