Beginner to Competitive Player in 1 Week!

Beginner to Competitive Player in 1 Week!

This is a true beginner’s course which will take you from just ‘knowing the rules of the game’ to a competitive player which can hold his ground against more experienced opponents.

This course is also perfect for those who have been playing for a while, but haven’t really studied chess and want to get a clear understanding of some of the basic strategy elements and tactical patterns.

This course divided into 3 main themes which correspond to the game flow:

1. Opening

FM Krykun won’t be focusing on the opening theory or different opening variations. Instead, Yuriy gives an overview of the main opening principles and ideas that will help you in all your games, regardless of what openings you play.

2. Middlegame

In this section FM Yuriy Krykun will answer one of the most commonly asked questions: what to do after the opening? Beginners get often lost in middlegame positions. They simply don’t know where the pieces should go, what the main plan should be and how it’s done?

Sounds familiar? If so this section is for you.

3. Endgame

The majority of beginners don’t know much about the endgame. And you want to know the secret? If you want to consistently beat your opponents at this level just take them to the endgame.

Of course, you need to know how to play basic endings, and that’s what this part of the course is about. FM Yuriy Krykun will give you all the tips and strategies for must-know endgames, so you can win it as easy as 1-2-3.

This is a great foundation to build upon.
