A few days ago, I shared with you the teaser video of our upcoming chess course “Magnus Carlsen: The Journey of a World Champion”. Today I’d like to provide you with more information about the course.

What’s this course about?

It is important to know about the history of chess and analyzing games of the best chess players. In order to make your game deeper, it is important to learn new techniques and ideas, especially from great players.

Why Magnus Carlsen?

We’ve already published an article about tactics and tips from Magnus Carlsen, where we’ve highlighted his success in short.

Additionally, in the past, we conducted a survey and asked for your opinion on our next lessons and courses. Many of YOU had requested for a course, explaining about Carlsen’s games and what YOU can learn from the Mozart of Chess. We always give our best fulfilling your requests, and thus born “Magnus Carlsen: The Journey of a World Champion”. 🙂

Who is the author?

The author of this course is our guest coach IM David Miedema, who is also the favourite RCA guest coach for most of you. Many of our students (you) really liked his video lessons and asked for more lessons and even a course from him. Again, here we are, giving you what you’ve asked for! 🙂
IM David Miedema

–> 6th of the Netherlands, beating Anish Giri in the process, twice.

He gained crucial fun skills in teaching chess. He will be traveling around Europe making videos and live in nomad lifestyle.





What can you learn?

David Miedema is not just presenting Magnus’s games, but he analyzed the most critical situation of the games. So, after the study of the course you will learn the following:

  •  What is Carlen’s special winning style and how YOU can use it in your games
    •  How to think effectively and find deep positional moves?
      • You will understand and get motivated from the games of the world champion!
        •  You will learn how to find the winning plans when you have the advantage
          •  How to think during the endgame and play like Carlsen?
            This sounds great, isn’t it! 🙂 But wait, there’s more. Yes, how the course would look like? I’m very happy to share with you the e-cover of the course.

            2. GM Igor, based on the excellent material from your courses, I’m sure it’s going to be great. I have 2 suggestions:

              1. Do a similar course for an attacking player. I’d prefer Tal but I’ll leave the choice to your discretion.

              2. I have your grunfeld course and it’s awesome. How about courses on the openings recommended in the opening lab series.

              Keep up the good work.

              1. Hi Max,
                Thanks for your comment!

                P.S. Your chess playing profile picture is nice. I guess you may play guitar as well, and if so – let me wish that you have a great time while playing! 🙂

            3. Hi Igor! I am using your recommendations on how to analyze my games and explain the mistakes using your principles. But I can’t work out this one: heres the FEN rnbq1rk1/ppp1bppp/3ppn2/8/3PP3/2NB1N2/PPP2PPP/R1BQ1RK1 b – – 5 6
