Opening Mastery – Dominate with 1.d4

How to Build a Pro-Level Opening Repertoire after 1.d4 and Finally Become the Player You Meant to Be…

Opening preparation takes up a huge chunk of our time. Not only you need to find the resources to trust, decide on the lines to study, pick the variations to play… You also invest time studying, playing practice games and keeping up with all the theory updates.

What does it take to play 1.d4 on the club level and beyond?

If you play the most popular 1.d4 lines, you need to know how to counter the King’s Indian, tackle the Dutch, survive the Slav, attack the Grunfeld, play the Benoni and bypass many dangerous offbeat lines…

On top of that, you should be familiar with the London System, Pillsbury attack, Queen’s Gambit Declined and Accepted. And if you really want to be prepared don’t forget to review the rare lines and deviations!

That’s a dozen books, months of preparation and a TON of trial and error, leading to MANY lost games and missed opportunities.

It sounds like a full-time job, doesn’t it?

Wouldn’t it be great to spend just a few hours getting all the opening knowledge you need for the years to come? Wouldn’t that make you a much more prepared, versatile and an overall better chess player?

I definitely think so.

  • What if there was a way to acquire this opening knowledge in a fraction of the time, in a perfectly organized and easy-to-follow manner?
  • What if it came with all the game plans, Grandmaster’s ideas, attacking patterns and blueprints?
  • What if you could start applying this GM knowledge immediately, and most importantly start seeing the RESULTS?

That’s exactly what Opening Mastery – Dominate with 1.d4 is about! This is the ultimate shortcut for club players to get a pro-grade opening preparation after 1.d4.

What it’ll do for you?

Instead of losing TONs of games just to learn what works and what doesn’t, you will be given the systems that are proven to work against the competition of any level!

You will know exactly how to play against and beat players in the 10 most widely played openings after 1.d4: London System, Queen’s Gambit Accepted, Queen’s Gambit Declined, Slav Defense, Benoni Defense, Kings Indian Defense, Nimzo Indian Defense, Grunfeld Defense, Dutch Defense, Tarrasch and Chigorin Defense!

No more second-guessing, worrying about what your opponent plays or facing unknown opening lines…

Not only you will gain a very powerful opening repertoire after 1.d4, but also you will learn the most effective attacking plans, pawn structure nuances, correct piece placement, typical maneuvers, and the game-winning strategies. You’ll get all the tools you need to unleash your best play under pressure in actual games!
