Slav is a timeless opening offering strategically rich positions, and flexibility, mixed with HUGE attacking potential.
IM Marcin Sieciechowicz, one of the top coaches in Poland, has put together a complete training on Slav Defense for Black.
His recipe is simple.
Marcin stayed away from “mainstream” ideas, focusing on powerful yet far less expected lines. He kept it light on theory, covering concrete lines + strategic nuances.
And even provided TWO types of repertoires… suitable for both attacking and positional players.
Study it today and you’ll be armed and ready to score points with black by this weekend!
Here is what will go into your opening arsenal:
- Lifetime Classical System – Marcin gives you a blueprint for harmoniously developing pieces and challenging White’s central pawn structure. The result is an active position with tons of initiative.
- Unleashing the Schallopp Defense – Black reinforces the central pawn structure and prepares for King’s side pawn expansion. The main goal is to restrict the opponent’s piece activity while getting a solid positional edge.
- Shutting Down Krause Attack – White decided to put pressure in the center and create imbalances? IM Sieciechowicz arms you with his favorite way to neutralize white’s initiative.
- Handling Exchange Variation – Your opponent is releasing the pressure early on? Big mistake! Marcin will train you on playing the symmetrical structures by focusing on piece activity and minor piece play.
Those are just a few ideas explained in 10 hours of video, plus you’re getting comprehensive PGN files for reviewing, training and memorizing your new repertoire.
If you are ready for the complete weapon against 1.d4, this is your pick.
