Chess players are supposed to be master strategists… but too many players neglect the development of this skill.
Which makes no sense.
Strategy is the map that gets you to your goal, a strong plan that drives you to victory… it’s like swimming with the current instead of against it.
And if you consider yourself a tactical player, just remember Fischer’s observation that “tactics flow from a superior position”.
Quality coaching on the more refined strategic ideas is hard to find… enter top German GM Georg Meier who is decided to give you the benefit of his decades of analytic and practical experience.
GM Meier did great work in his first course for iChess – a brilliant 3-hour training on advanced strategy for our INC Turbo series.
If you study this course, you will be a better player. No doubt about it.
How is this course going to help me?
Get ready for some great lessons:
- Targeting Weaknesses. A weakness is only a weakness if it can be exploited. GM Meier exposes some deep chess truths in this clash between two 2800 players.
- Winning Level Positions. Carlsen is famous for it… the ability to extract win after win from seemingly equal positions. Some people this is a result of endurance or luck. GM Meier identifies the fine margins that make one side of the equal position easier to play than the other.
- When Champions Collide. GM Meier analyses a game between Anand and Carlsen, White goes after the bishop pair with 9.g4. This one move sets the strategic battle for the rest of the game. Georg Meier reveals the advanced secrets of this hugely instructive game.
- Eliminating Counterplay. No matter how good your position is, strong players will constantly be looking for counterplay. You need to be at least 1 step ahead, combining pushing your plan forward with finding and eliminating your opponent’s counterplay. This course will help you find that balance.
Strategic shrewdness stays with you – unlike tactical sharpness – making this the best bang for your buck in terms of return on your training time.
Many of these ideas you won’t have seen before – at least, not to this level.
And Georg does a fantastic job of explaining why things work the way they do. Quality coaching delivered in a clear and calm manner.
