Improve Your Decision Making with GM Davorin Kuljasevic
Croatian coach GM Davorin Kuljasevic (2591 Elo) has just completed Improve Your Decision Making – a 10-hour course laser-focused on the crucial topic of decision-making.
Drawing on years of experience coaching club players rated between 1600 and 2200, Davorin has identified the 9 types of decisions that players have to make in real games.
He explains the errors in thinking that lead to mistakes at these critical junctures… and gives you easy-to-follow processes for getting them right.
What does the course cover?
- The Complex Center. Should you close the center, initiate a pawn exchange, or wait for your opponent to take? Recapture with a pawn or piece? Many players underestimate the long-lasting impact of these early decisions. Davorin shows you how to come out on top in the central battle.
- Keeping the Advantage: Your initiative can slip away with one inaccurate move. If you’ve sacrificed material or made positional concessions, that can be fatal. This course shows you how to find hyper-accurate moves when attacking so you get the win your play deserves.
- The Opening. Most openings can be navigated well even if you find yourself in unfamiliar territory. GM Kuljasevic shows you how to avoid automatic moves like Nf3 and Bc4 and find the strategically strongest plan – making the rest of the game much easier for you.
- The Endgame. Endgames have all the tactics and strategies that middlegames do, but slip-up here and there’s no coming back. You need to learn when to apply general principles and when to break the rules if you want to be successful. Davorin covers the endgame technique in chapters 19 and 20.
Imagine the difference it would make to your game if every time you were faced with a piece trade, every time you had to decide whether to attack, every time you had to make a strategic decision… you got it right.
This is a unique training program that teaches you how to play better chess by making better decisions.

1.d4 Practical Repertoire for White with FM Yuriy Krykun
FM Yuriy Krykun presents a fantastic repertoire course with a *heavy* emphasis on simplicity and avoiding memorization of theory (a big problem for club players)…
Instead, you’re given simple sidelines and sneaky move-orders that’ll take your opponent out of “book” as early as move 4 and force him to think for himself.
These are the lines FM Krykun plays himself, yet he has generously spilled all of his secrets in 10.5 hours of HD video training that’ll leave you feeling confident and ambitious as white in all your future games.
A Few Weapons to STUN Your Opponents with…
- The Hanging Pawns Attack for CRUSHING the Queen’s Gambit! Avoid black’s super-solid lines and with this easy to play like you’ll get a rock-hard pawn center supported by missile-like bishops firing at black’s kingside! (See Chapters 1&2!)
- Smyslov’s “Quiet, but Deadly” System EASILY Takes the Sting Out of the King’s Indian! King’s Indian players thrive in crazy positions with mutual pawn storms and deadly sacrifices…Smyslov’s system leaves them frustrated in a dry positional game where YOU call the shots! (See Chapters 17 & 18!)
- An Anti-Slav Line with ZERO Theory! Sidestep the complex Slav theory with this simple line and use the sneaky 5.Nh4! to put immediate pressure on the black position…the “natural” 5…Bg6?! walks into a hammer blow you’ll have to see to believe! (See Chapter 6!)
Fighting 1.e4 – The Complete Repertoire for Black with FM Yuriy Krykun
1.e4 is the most popular first move in chess.
The chances are, you’ll see 1.e4 in nearly half of your games with Black!
Sure, you can respond with 1…e5, Sicilian, Caro-Kann, or French… but learning all these lines and variations would turn out very time consuming and tedious.
We are all busy, who has MONTHS to hit the books and learn a bunch of opening theory?
Well, FM Yuriy Krykun has just finished Fighting 1.e4: The Complete Repertoire for Black with a ‘heavy’ emphasis on practicality and simplicity. No need to memorize the mainline theory for the lines you’ll likely never face in your entire chess life!
Instead, FM Krykun gives you 2 full repertoires against 1.e4 based on Czech Pirc and a very special setup in Alekhine’s Defense!
