Product Description

The Susan Polgar Method for Scholastic Chess Training Vol. 2

The post-beginner stage is the most critical in chess. If you want to make serious progress in the game, it’s what you do now that matters.

Too many players approach chess learning in a haphazard way – it always comes back to bite them later on…They lose game after game because of weak endgames or positional understanding, spending years stuck at the same old rating as they try to unlearn bad habits…

Get it right the first time with GM Susan Polgar, former prodigy, world champion and one of the finest coaches in the world today.

The Susan Polgar Method for Scholastic Training Vol.2 gives you a properly designed comprehensive course that covers everything.


To help you (or your students) get the most out of the course, Susan has included the following bonuses:

  • The complete PGN with annotations. Analyze every game, study, and position on your computer (or challenge the engine to prove you know the winning method!)
  • 35-page eBook covering the principles Susan teaches in the course.
  • Challenging puzzles related to the course material (with detailed answers).
  • This is a rare opportunity to get a structured course from one of the most successful coaches in the world today.
