Product Description

IM Mat Kolosowski Presents…

It doesn’t matter which openings you play – all openings…EVERY. Single. One… has dangerous, venom-filled traps that can lose you the game in a single move.

And as a chessplayer… nothing’s worse than the embarrassment of resigning before move 10.

And it isn’t just a danger for you.

Even strong players have had the face-reddening experience of losing in a few moves.

Look at this guy: he thought his “tactical shot” …Nxd4 was winning… only to have his sneaky, snickering opponent trap his queen in a few moves… humiliating!


How can you avoid nightmare situations like this?

I’ve brought in leading coach IM Mat Kolosowski to create an entire course on EVERY trap in chess theory… and the result is a 6.5-hour crash course that’ll save you dozens of points and hours of embarrassment!

No matter what openings you play, there’s something IM Mat Kolosowksi will point out to help you sidestep the dangers, improve your tactical skill, and improve your overall tournament performance.

Here is what it will do for you:

  • How to LAUGH at the London System: London is considered one of the most solid openings in chess. So imagine white’s shock when he loses a piece to the simple 4…e5! – players as strong as 2100 Elo have fallen into this one!
  • A Knight Sac that SHATTERS the Caro Kann: This opening is proven to be safe and solid…right? Wrong. Keep an eye out for the shocking Nxf7!! which comes from a blue sky but ends the game immediately! (See Chapter 14)
  • A Queen Sac that totally TROLLS 1.d4 Players: One careless move as white and he destroys you with a game-winning queen sacrifice! One of the hidden dangers of the Queen’s Gambit opening and one EVERY player must know! (See Chapter 17)
