Renowned coach IM Milovan Ratkovic reveals…
Some call it the Jobava London system.
We call it the Rapport-Jobava system—a killer opening for club players and GMs alike.
Club players like it because it is less forced, less explored, and requires a lot less up-to-date theoretical knowledge.
Advanced chess players love it for the unlimited playing chances it proffers against a plethora of Black’s defenses.
King’s Indian Defense, Modern, Grünfeld, Nimzo, Benko, Benoni, Budapest Gambit… bring it on!
Even top grandmasters like Mamedyarov, Radjabov, Nakamura, Naiditsch, and even Carlsen have started adding this opening to their repertoire.
So why shouldn’t you? Especially when IM Milovan Ratkovic brings you his brand-new, exclusive course on the Rapport-Jobava system.
So, in this 5 hours video course, Milovan takes you one by one through 6 Black’s major responses from 3…e6 to 3…c5, and explores the different variations on how White can go on the offensive with Black.
Here’s what you will learn:
- Tons of theory? Nope! Just learn a couple of lines, understand the fundamental ideas, and get the show on the road, my friend. No need to spend hours on theory like Ruy Lopez, Queen’s Gambit Declined, and so on.
- Get Black out of his comfort zone. Black will be out of preparation almost from the 2nd move. A side effect of being a new opening—nobody studies it! But you did … with one of the best in business, IM Ratkovic, and Black might have to pay for it as early as 10 moves in.
- Tactical to the core. This opening is preferred by two highly creative grandmasters, Jobava and Rapport—who love unknown, flexible positions with lots of tactical opportunities. If you want some action over the board, this opening is for you.
Is this course for you?
Are you the kind of player who is always looking for action over the board? If every move looks like a potential sacrifice to you, then this opening is for you.
This opening is perfectly suitable for club players and grandmasters alike.
Club players love this opening because of its very, very little theory. Just learn the setup and get cracking right after finishing the course.
Advanced players love it because of the unlimited options it comes with. It results in sharp middle game positions where White’s strategy can swing between two extremes on a jiff—perfect for some players like Carlsen, Aronian, Rapport, and of course, Jobava!
