The GingerGM Method
Want to realize your chess potential but don’t have much time to study? “GingerGM” Simon Williams and the brand-new course from iChess has you covered.
In this comprehensive 15 hour course, Simon reveals the training secrets and shortcuts that helped him become a GM with a fraction of the time and effort it takes most people.
You’ll learn how to get an opening repertoire that fits your style and become an expert in it, not by memorizing a ton of theory, but by absorbing the key patterns.
Learn when and how to launch an attack from the GM who models his game on Mikhail Tal’s! And piece it together with a positional understanding that allows you to get those great positions in the first place.
Add rarely discussed tips on a rapid, accurate calculation, player psychology, and killer endgame instinct and you’re ready to become one of the most feared competitors around – even if you only have 1 hour/week to study.
What’s the Method?
The method focuses on the structured use of “pattern modeling”; how with the right system, you can copy the ideas of openings, middlegame structures, playing styles – or anything – and apply it in another area to greatly accelerate your overall mastery.
This method seems simple, but when applied properly, it allows a normal chess study routine of 1-3 hours a DAY to be compressed to 1 hour a WEEK, with comparable results.
How Does the Method Create Such Rapid Improvement?
- Building a Solid Foundation: GM Williams begins by helping you identify your unique strengths, weaknesses and playing style. Once armed with this vital self-knowledge you’ll easily choose openings or positions that are comfortable for you to play and easier for you to win!
- The transition from Opening to Middlegame: Learn how to model the ideas of the experts in your favorite openings, so that you too can become an expert in record time (GM Williams’ modeling of Jon Speelman’s dangerous Qc2/h4/Ng4 concept is a superb example for you to learn from!)
- When and How to Attack: Discover GM Williams’ “magic number” of pieces needed for a winning attack and how to be RUTHLESS when you’re “positionally doomed” (The widely applicable “rules” of attack can be used in dozens of scenarios to conjure up tactical storms from a blue sky!)
If you’re a busy person (who isn’t!) but still want to eventually reach the master level, grab a copy of GM Williams’ course for half of what others pay!
