Only Geniuses Can Solve This Chess Puzzle + Quarantine Mega Bundle

These are tough times for a lot of us due to the coronavirus outbreak. At the RCA, we understand that this crisis may have affected many of you, and that’s why we have decided to help you get through these tough times by helping you get better at chess. Some of you might not be able to afford our paid courses, and you can make the best out of what we are going to provide – you can get the “Quarantine Mega Bundle”!

What’s that bundle? What does it contain? Well, it has 5 of my best selling courses over the last year, which will give you a COMPLETE training system in all 3 stages of the game – the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. The actual total cost of these courses is a really huge $478 USD, but you can get them for as cheap as just $99 USD with this bundle, saving about a really massive $379 USD. These 5 courses are:

  • The Secrets of Strong Players
  • Attack and Win
  • The Grandmaster’s Opening Laboratory
  • The Grandmaster’s Positional Understanding
  • An Endgame Expert

Note: This special bundle will be available only till Sunday, 19 April (included).

And it does not stop there. We are also willing to provide you with some ‘mental support’ during this time – since keeping a strong mind is essential these days, you can get my book “Champion Psychology – A book for future chess champions” worth about $30 USD for FREE! This book will help you to stay cool and do your best while enjoying the royal game of chess. You’ll learn the most common psychological weapons that top Grandmasters use. You can download this book here (it has both the PDF and the EPUB formats) – LINK. We hope you have a good time reading this book during this forced lockdown, and also it is something productive and uplifting.

Similar to the bundle offer, this offer is also valid only till this Sunday, 19 April (inclusive). This is the first time we are running such huge offers – the above-mentioned bundle is almost 80% discount on the courses, and we may never give an offer like this in the future, so don’t miss it! We really hope you enjoy these offers and benefit from them – take care and wishing you the best!

White to play

As you can see, Black is ready to push his pawn to b2, giving a check, and then to promote it to a queen. Black’s bishop on h7 is preventing White from doing a lot of things as well. So, what should White do here? Can you find it? Once again, let me warn you that it is really hard to solve. 😊 Check out the video analysis below to see the solution:



I hope you enjoy reading this blog post.
