GM Paco Vallejo

Product Code: E-DVD-VALL


Winning at chess takes a lot more than just tactical sharpness and theoretical knowledge. As well as the pieces on the board, a champion takes into account his emotions, those of his opponent, the clock and the art of practical decision-making.

Should you complicate or play solidly? Play fast or slow? These decisions often prove to be just as important as any brilliant combination that’s found or missed. In this superb 9 hour course, GM Francisco ‘Paco’ Vallejo Pons reveals the most instructive moments from his games, focusing on the practical decisions that won or lost the game.

Paco is one of the world’s top players with a rating over 2700, is a former World Youth Champion and defeated Veselin Topalov in their 2012 match. In The Paco Vallejo Method, he presents his golden rules of practical chess success, tips that will help any player get the most from their ability.

On top of valuable advice on how to avoid time trouble, eliminate blunders and recognize the critical, game-winning moments, Paco gives superb grandmaster insights into popular openings, strategic decisions and techniques to convert an endgame advantage.

This combination of instructive chess content and self-management – a topic rarely discussed elsewhere – make The Paco Vallejo Method the essential improvement course for anyone who competes, whether for their club or in tournaments.

As well as 9 hours of fantastic video coaching from one of the strongest players in the world, you get practical tests to reinforce the ideas and make them part of your natural play plus a detailed course summary picking out the most important ideas from each chapter for quick reference.
