Today, there is an overabundance of chess books, DVDs, and other educational materials. That’s why almost every chess player knows all the chess basics. Everyone knows what a weak square is, the center, a fork and other well-known strategic and tactical motifs. That’s why, nowadays, you need to have some unique skills if you want to beat an experienced or stronger opponent.
The quantities of strong players have considerably increased in the last few years. They play well. The problem is that all of them study the same chess books and programs and accumulate similar knowledge. That is why at a certain stage of your chess development you are faced with a question “How to beat a stronger opponent?” That’s why we can often only make a draw (as the best result) against a stronger opponent.
To address this question and to provide you with an effective solution, we launched the course “How to Beat Titled Players” a few years ago. However, some of the RCA students (who studied it) felt that they needed something more. They wanted some real-world practical examples on this topic – for example, a lower rated player defeating a higher rated player, and/or a club player defeating a titled player. Basically, they requested for some improvements to the course.
As we always do in RCA, we considered their requests quite seriously, and decided to improve the course. Thus born the upgraded version of the course, now titled, “How to Beat Stronger Opponents”! 🙂
What’s new in this upgrade?
The following has been included in upgraded version:
1. Brand new lessons from myself (Igor) with a total duration of more than 60 minutes.
2. 50 new analyzed positions for the practical part which will help YOU better understand the concept and video lessons. These games are separated into 3 different categories.
3. A new e-book with all the video lessons in text format.
4. The PGN files with all games analyzed in the video lessons.
I’d also like to highlight the fact that ATTACK is one of the weapons to beat stronger opponents, but definitely not the only weapon. In the course “How to Beat Stronger Opponents” I will explain thoroughly all of these weapons. 🙂
Suggestedyou may like to watch our previous video lesson about 13-year old Magnus Carlsen defeating GM Sergey Dolmatov. The lesson deals with this topic – beating stronger opponents!
The course will be released on Monday, 5 February. I’d also like to emphasize that the course is NOT only for titled players, but for everyone, except for the world champion, as we all have stronger opponents. 🙂
P.S. If you have already studied the course “How to Beat Titled Players”, then you can get this upgraded version for FREE! I’ll provide you with more details soon.
