How to Eliminate Blunders?

Winning the middlegame banner

Recently “ChessMate” (which is the biggest paper chess magazine in India) published my new lesson “How to Prevent Blunders”.

If you live in India – check out the September and November issues of “Chess Mate”.

At the same time I want that ALL the students can learn this important lesson. So I’ve just recorded a video about the same topic for you.

Part-2 of this lesson: LINK

    I am interested with all of your lessons but the question is can you guarantee that I will be able to be a 2700+ chess player without bribing any folks? I only see folks with low rating that comment in your site and that is the reason to doubt it ok?
