Webinar in Defense by IM Valeri Lilov

Comments: 7

A first-time experience is always very special for us. In this vein, I conducted the first-ever RCA webinar on the topic “Art of Defense” (LINK).


Although I explained a lot of ideas and discussed defense in that webinar, many students still ask me for lessons about defense. Therefore, I thought I should provide you with what you have asked for. 🙂

The next RCA webinar, “Webinar in Defense”, will be conducted by IM Valeri Lilov on Saturday, 18 July at 10 a.m. New York time (check timings here: LINK).


Normally, when you have a good position, you need to put an end to your opponent’s attack, wake up, and counter-attack. But when your position is worse, you usually play defensive moves, as you’ll not have even a second to ‘breathe’.


The important thing you need to remember is that defense is an essential part of chess, just like attack. You need to get rid of the myth that defensive moves are passive moves.

Defense is just an interesting opportunity for you, where you’ll even get the chance to improve your positional play.


To discuss this topic in detail and to teach you the essentials of defense in chess, Lilov will be conducting the webinar for you on 18 July. To know more details about the webinar and to sign up, click the image below:

  1. dear igor,some of the people are really confused with your thinking system and they think that the thinking process you provide is just for the level of 1800 players not above that they thinks that you and simon williams like gms are completely idiot one of my friend from kolkata which has recently achived a rating of 2100 says like that=igor is completey idiot but i don’t belive that!!what do you say about that type of peoples??

  2. Hi Ayush,

    Igor has a busy schedule and is not able to answer all questions. Let me help you on this.

    There will always be people who will have a different opinion about any subject. Igor has some students that become IM’s because of studying his courses. I’m sure that your friend would be able to take a lot of useful ideas from Igor’s courses as well. There are courses dedicated for all levels of students – Beginners, Intermediates, Advanced.

    Best regards,
