Build Your Opening Repertoire
The subject of this course is how to build an opening repertoire. The target viewer is rated somewhere around 1700 Elo, but I hope anyone from under 1300 to up about the Expert level will find it useful. How do we choose our openings? Is that something our favorite player plays? Or do we find the name cool?
Obviously, our selection process has to be intelligent and individually tailored to our needs. The sole purpose of the opening is to get a kind of middle-game position you like to play and good at it.
A number of personality traits have to be considered, and, of course, absolute honesty is required when it comes to self-evaluating. Suppose you have made your selection. What to do next? Start watching the videos to get a Russian Schoolboy’s advice.
The course is divided into 34 training videos, covering nearly 24 hours of top-level instruction, by one of the most experienced teachers today!
What Will You Learn? A Few Examples…
- Sicilian Defense Richter Rauzer: The opening GM Alex used to crush young Kasparov and which he has continued to develop to this day! You’ll learn all of his secrets with updated computer lines for explosive opening power (Yermo’s 8…Bd7! move gives you easy play and great winning chances!)
- The Element of Surprise: Learn 2 killer techniques that confuse your opponents with opening ideas they’d never expect (this “guerilla warfare” strategy applies to all openings and can score you quick wins when you need them most!)
- Queen’s Gambit Declined: GM Yermo greatly simplifies this solid opening favored by Capablanca, Karpov, Anand, and Spassky in their world championship matches (HINT: try Karpov’s clever move orders which allow you to push back white’s aggression and dominate him positionally!)
