Course Description

“After studying the GM’s Positional Understanding the wonderful thing is that now I understand why I was losing. Thanks, thanks, thanks.”

– Zoltán Páll (Romania)

Stronger players UNDERSTAND chess better!

No, they don’t just calculate variations. Strong players don’t just memorize opening lines. They don’t just look for tactics every move. What set really strong players ahead of the pack is their DEEP and CLEAR UNDERSTANDING of the game. This clear understanding allows them to ‘JUST KNOW’ the right move!

With their deep positional and strategic understanding guiding them like a compass, strong chess players can tell the right plan and ideas and KNOW the RIGHT move ALL the time… without breaking a sweat!

Well, consider this. Modern tournament chess players spend LONG hours on:

1) Training their tactical skills and combinative eye by solving hundreds or even thousands of tactical exercises.
2) Studying and memorizing sharp opening lines. They even buy monthly chess opening publications to keep them up-to-date with the latest theory.
3) And when it comes to playing, they love positions that allow them to attack.

The Grandmaster’s Positional Understanding isn’t just informative. It’s NOT just a theoretical discussion of positional play and strategic understanding. This course is ALL about the MOST important strategic and positional rules and, more importantly, it will show you how to apply these in your games!

With the heightened UNDERSTANDING of chess, you will make that QUALITATIVE LEAP FORWARD in your chess development.
