Opening Course for Beginners

Most beginners have HUGE problems when it comes to opening preparation. They either spend too much time on a single line trying to memorize it till move 35 or get lost in never-ending sub-variations. Those players spend A LOT of time on openings without seeing RESULTS.

And that’s not surprising.

The majority of players don’t know HOW and WHAT to study when it comes to opening preparation. They get lost in the ocean of information. There are so many choices, lines, variations, styles, and strategies that it seems you need a Ph.D. (aka GM-title) to figure it out!

It doesn’t have to be that way!

You don’t need to go over 5-6 four-hundred page books or to absorb 100+ hours of video lessons to play solid openings. All you need is an understanding of basic opening principles and 2-3 reliable opening lines at your disposal. That’s it. Those two things are sufficient to keep you out of trouble at the club level!

We made things even simpler for you…

In this brand new 6-hour course, IM Lilov provides you with the most essential opening resources. The course is structured in such a way that you get 3 types of repertoires for both colors: ‘tournament‘, ‘basic‘ and ‘sparring‘. The tournament repertoire maximizes your victory chances and should be used for competition.

The basic repertoire is for those who like keeping things simple. The sparring repertoire is for training purposes, to grow as a chess player. The course comes packed with priceless opening advice from a world-renowned coach with over a decade of experience. You just can’t go wrong with this!

Even if you have absolute zero opening knowledge after studying this course you will raise your opening preparation level to a solid club level. This is by far the quickest opening-preparation shortcut for beginner/intermediate players.

The course covers:

  • How to learn an opening without the need to spend weeks on opening preparation?
  • How to find and play the strongest opening moves even if you encounter unknown lines?
