Why this course was created?
Liem Le Quang is one of the world’s top 30 players with a Super GM rating of 2718. When we asked him to create a chess improvement course based on his philosophy, he enthusiastically suggested a masterclass on the most common and instructive pawn structures.
The result: the Liem Le Quang Method.
Over the course of 5 hours, Liem helps you peer into the soul of chess, revealing how to play his 5 essential structures for both sides. By understanding where to place your pieces and how to conduct the various attacking options available to you, you’ll be able to dominate your games, safe in the knowledge that your plan is backed by a 2700 rated GM.
GM Le Quang starts each chapter by examining the skeleton structure, explaining where the opportunities and threats lie and which plans to accompany each.
Then he shows how these plans work out in practice with analysis of multiple games featuring the world’s best players. The balancing of White wins and Black wins gives the complete picture and reinforces the memory of how to punish any mistakes.
The beauty of this course is it’s not restricted to just one opening or from just one side’s perspective. What you learn here can be applied in multiple situations and gives you the freedom and flexibility to transpose into a position you enjoy.
Armed with the Liem Le Quang Method, you’ll be ready to outplay even the strongest players in the structures you’re most likely to find yourself in.
- The audacious attack in the Queen’s Gambit that leaves Black’s King lonely and scared, surrounded by your bloodthirsty pieces. Even Hikaru Nakamura was unable to stop this!
- How to use the hidden venom in the Maroczy Bind (usually seen against the Sicilian) for a super-quick win. If your opponent can’t repeatedly find obscure ‘only moves’ (and a 2700 GM couldn’t!), their position just collapses.
- How to play the most satisfying sacrifice in chess, the stunning Nd5!! GM Le Quang reveals how and when it works so you can stun your rivals and leave them mentally beaten.
- The secret of the Scheveningen – use this flexible favorite of Kasparov and Anand’s to attack first on one side, then the other side of the board; stretching your rival’s defenses until it falls apart.
