Description

Sometimes when you pass the game into the endgame and the material is equal, for example, only a few minor pieces and a few pawns left, you think that it should be a draw. But very often it is not so. You can win if you have a positional advantage or an extra pawn on one of the sides.

Of course, the winning plan usually is not clear. That's why you need this course to learn what typical minor pieces endgames plans are. It will help you to improve your skills of playing the endgames.

This course contains 24 tips about how to play minor pieces endgames. The course is divided into 4 sections:

  • Bishop Endgames
  • Knight Endgames
  • Bishop vs Knight Endgames
  • Knight vs Bishop Endgames

And in each section I demonstrate you positions from real games between Grandmasters and explain the winning plans!

And finally I prepared a quizz for you to practice at the end the course.

With this course you also get:

  • unlimited lifetime access at no extra costs
  • all future additional lectures, game examples
  • never any questions asked full 30 day money-back-in-full guarantee

I look forward to seeing you in class!

Sincerely,

Viktor

​Commodity Market Analyst & Chess Coach

My name is Viktor Neustroev and I am a trader.

Since 2003 I have been trading financial markets starting with FOREX and then broadening horizons to commodity markets. Trading is all my life, but it really became a passion when I started trading options. Trading financial markets gives people what they really want - financial independence.

I am also a chessplayer and a chess coach for my daughter (you can find my name in FIDE rating list). Why I like financial markets? Because it's like chess, when you know the rules, but you don't need to play against the market. Just follow your plan, again and again!

To sum up, I am here to share my trading experience. I believe that everyone wants to leave a trace in history and I see my mission in teaching and making people's life better.
