      What was the biggest surprise since creating RCA? Or, to put it another way, did anything happen to you or the company that completely took you by surprise?

      • Hi Jonathan,

        There were many surprises.

        – When I just started, I was really surprised that people consider me to be a good coach, I never anticipated this from myself 🙂
        – Once I called a financial consultant from US, and she suddenly said, “Igor, I know you”. It turned out she studied my courses 🙂

        – Coming to negative surprises, there were a few hacker attacks on RCA website, and for a few days the website was down. I never expected the competition amongst chess companies to be so severe.

    I am 50 years old,
    ===============
    I have nice reporoir, but not completed, but I know Ideas behind my openeing reportoir
    ======
    I am not bad in endgame, as I not loose in endgame, and my win not go away in this stage
    =======
    I study all your courses and solve all your training excercises
    =====
    my thinking process depend on
    – center type
    – oppenent threats
    – my apelities
    – study all openent pieces apeleties and all my pieces also, to activate and improve my pieces
    – least active piece to most active sq. towards the center
    – to take is almost a mistake
    – choose the plan and check it
    – choose the move.
    ======
    I know all that and finished all my studies in chess from one year,…., and I take more than one year to train for that
    But
    my Elo go down from 2139 to 2092
    ====
    why ?
    how can I improve ?

    • First of all, it’s great that you have all around knowledge about chess. Congratulations for the massive training you performed!

      Sometimes it happens that too much of new information confuses the situation for you. In this case, it’s good to return to fundamentals and focus on 1 thing alone.
      I would suggest that you review the course “The Grandmaster’s Positional Understanding” and strive to follow it in your games. For some time, put all your other training aside, and focus on this 1 activity.

      This should bring good results! Good luck!

    Hello sir , I have some problem in greek gift sacrifice when my opponent comes to kg6 can you please tel how to proceed from there is there any particular way to deal in it after the sacrifice we don’t have clear win after opponent play kg6

  • Anup rajawat

    Hello Igor , I have started learning the attacking lesson where I come across one term ” when you have advantage in piece activity compared to your opponent” what does this activity stands for ? space advantage or something else ?

    • Usually space advantage ensures greater piece activity, however it’s not the only factor.
      The ‘piece activity’ is explained in details in the course “The Grandmaster’s Positional Understanding” (or “The Grandmaster’s Secrets”). In fact these 2 courses are dedicated to this subject.
