Why this course was created?
Anatoly Karpov needs no introduction. Karpov held a World Championship Title for over a decade, from 1975 to 1985, when he was defeated by one and only Garry Kasparov.
Then Karpov held a FIDE World Championship Title from 1993 to 1999 and is considered one of the best chess players of all time.
Anatoly Karpov is one of the most consistent and stable World Champions. His play is rock solid and Karpov hardly makes any mistakes.
In this new course, IM Givon reveals some of the most effective techniques that Karpov used to DOMINATE his competition for many years. You will get familiar with Karpov’s style and most importantly will learn some of the weapons that you can directly apply to your own games.
And although I cannot promise that you will play like Karpov, it will give you a serious edge against any club level opponent.
Here is what you’ll learn:

Why study Anatoly Karpov?
Think of Bobby Fischer or Mikhail Tal with all those beautiful sacrifices and checkmating nets. It is a pure attacking genius in it’s prime. It is something that an average club player can never really understand or use in his own games…
Karpov’s style of play is very educational for any type of player.
With a rock-solid approach and prophylactic thinking, he is the player that does not rely on machine-like tactics or superb calculation skills not available to 99.99% of players.
Karpov’s play is based on slow maneuvering, keeping his pieces safe, and playing a lot of prophylactic moves, neutralizing his opponent’s threats, plans, and pieces. As you’ll see in this course, his opponents lose because they slowly run out of plans and good moves.
And what’s more important… this style of play is suitable for players of ALL LEVELS from novice to super-GM.
Karpov demonstrates that you don’t need to be an attacking genius, tactical wizard, or an opening database type of player to perform at the highest level. His methodology is very powerful and can help any chess player reaching their goals.
