Product Description

Have you ever been overwhelmed with the opening prep?

Did you know that the average chess player spends 3-5 hours per week learning the theory…

…But only improves by under 100 points a year!?

It’s no wonder WHY so many players are beyond frustrated.

There are so many questions and so few answers…

  • What openings should I focus on studying?
  • How do I memorize the moves?
  • How should I respond when an opponent deviates from the line?

Well, here is the good news.

There are a few chess players who know a secret recipe…

When applied correctly… it rakes in 300-500 or more rating points a year!

By spending half the time on openings compared to that of the average player, you’ll get 3-5X the results!

And we just got the right person for that.

Milovan Ratkovic is an International Master, Head Coach, and Creator of the Opening Master Program.

He worked with hundreds of students in the past 10 years. And some of his top students reached 2300 and 2400 FIDE.
