If you want to follow Botvinnik's success and improve your own game, IM Boroljub Zlatanovic has recorded a 10-hour training based on Botvinnik's 5 KEY elements of chess: The File, Bishop Pair, Key Squares, Harmony, Logic & Strategy.
He was at the top for nearly 30 years…
Considered the 4th strongest player of all time behind only Kasparov, Karpov, and Fischer… the first two were his students.
A universal player, with a strong preference for positions with attacking chances, avoiding the drawish lines…
Of course, we are talking about the 6th World Chess Champion Mikhail Botvinnik!
Botvinnik played like a bulldozer sweeping away everything on his path.
He later developed a training system that produced some of the greatest chess minds including Kasparov, Karpov, Kramnik, and Shirov, just to name a few…
If you want to follow his success and improve your own game, IM Boroljub Zlatanovic has recorded a 10-hour training based on Botvinnik’s 5 KEY elements of chess: The File, Bishop Pair, Key Squares, Harmony, Logic & Strategy.
Master those, and you’ll be the most feared opponent in your state.
Here’s what you are going to learn:
- Long-Term Strategy – Imagine you need to outplay the World’s best tacticians, those that can calculate literally until the endgame. And you are NOT one of them. Botvinnik was in the same shoes. He relied on strategy, rather than raw calculation to win all his games.
- Black Pieces Paradox – Most players are better with White pieces. Botvinnik won more games with Black. How? This is what you will learn from this course.
- ‘Universal’ Player – Some players are pure attackers… Tal or Fischer. Some are pure defenders, like Petrosian. Botvinnik combined the best of both worlds, being a 50/50 attacker and defender allowed him to remain at the top for a very long time. In this course, you’ll learn how to adjust your playing style.
- Attacking Chess for non-Attackers – Although Botvinnik wasn’t an all-out attacking player, he won many beautiful games involving tactics & sacrifices. Today you will learn how he did that.
Those are just a few things you will learn from this excellent training.
If you are tired of working on your games, and not seeing any measurable results, Botvinnik’s Training is what you need.
