Teaser video of our next course “From opening to middlegame”

Comments: 9

First, I’m very glad to inform you that our next course “From opening to middlegame” by our guest coach IM Asaf Givon, will be launched on Tuesday, 13 June. Now I’d like to answer the question that most of you are thinking about.

Why this course?

From opening to middlegame
As many of you might be thinking, one of my students, Johnny, asked a similar question in the comments section of the previous blog-post. He wrote:

Hi Honorable GM Smirnov. I have – and gone through at least twice – “Winning the middlegame
, “
The Grandmaster’s secrets”, “The grandmaster’s positional understanding”, “Your winning plan”, “Grandmasters opening lab 1 and 2 and gm’s opening lab 2 bonus pack”.

These batteries of courses have improved my chess game tremendously, to the point that I think I will reach/surpass 2000 soon from around 1800 currently. Your system is so simple and automatic that I’ve picked it up like a sponge. My game follows your principles all the time. What additional jewels does this new course contain?

I’ve answered his question as a reply to his comment, but since some of you and others might have overlooked it, I’d like to post my answer here, so that everyone can see it easily.

The new course is focused on the transition between opening and middlegame – the troublesome stage to the majority of chess players. My earlier courses were more comprehensive and didn’t focus on this phase of the game.

IM Asaf Givon (the author of videos) doesn’t talk about ‘principles’ (explained in my other courses), but I think it will be beneficial for you – because you can learn something new. To conclude, this course will certainly help you make good progress and it is a must-have if you’re facing problems in this area (opening to middlegame transition).

Launch offers

20% discounteTo celebrate the launch of this course, we’ll be providing you with some nice offer. You can get this course with a huge 20% discount – this will save you some bucks!

  1. dear igor sir gm garry kasparov the world champion is now starting his own online chess lessons privately on chess.com and on masterclass.com website this lessons he would private training to student pre enroll is 90 dollars for lifetime and 20 +lectures online.what do you think about that i had watched the preview tomorrow it was just awesome.

    1. Their promo video is done very well indeed. As for the video lessons’ actual content (which is the most important thing) – they don’t provide any information. It’s stated that they sell 20 video lessons, but even the duration of lessons is not stated.

      I would recommend that you check out existing video lessons of Kasparov from the past (for instance, he has series of videos about openings). Then you can evaluate whether his videos improve your game or not. Hence, you’ll be able to make rational decision (on whether to buy his video lessons), instead of emotional reaction to their promo materials.

      Good luck with your chess progress!

      1. hmmm. ok sir thankyou sir for your response as the kasprov videos is going in lightning speed they cant improve much that is know to everybody that is why we follow rca and ichess.net and other chess gm webisite of simon and others.

      2. dear igor 2 days ago there is a big result magnus is beaten by aronian in norway chess open and by giri today aronian got a brilliancy prize after that game he caught him in the opening as white with new ideas and anand also loses to giri and kramnik what do you think about magnus and anand pitfalls .??thankyou in advnace.

        1. Aronian is a creative player, and from time to time he finds great new ideas in his opening preparation. It was an excellent game by Aronian indeed! Carlsen really struggled in an opening to middlegame transition, he might need to study the new course of RCA 🙂

          As for Giri-Anand game – Giri was just playing better. Good example of 2 bishops usage.

          1. wooah sir thankyou so much for this one reply.i have already got all my anwsers i hope that i will see you in my chattisgarh state one day and we will play a lot of 10 minutes games. byee tc.
