Description

This course is about chess openings and I believe you know how important they are. According to the statistics right-playing of the opening makes from 30 to 60% of your success (the exact number depends on your level). 

This course consists of 6 sections. 4 of them are devoted of how to play for white and 2 – how to play for black.

What exactly do I teach in this course? I will teach you how to play against 2 Knights defenseEvans Gambit, against Scandinavian defense and Anti-Sicilians: Rossolimo and Moscow Variations

As for black I will teach you Sicilian Defense: Paulsen Variation. If your opponent plays d4 as a first move, then I demonstrate you how to play Slav Defense: the exchange variation, the main line and some secondary lines.

I designed this course for beginners and club players with FIDE rating from 1200 to 2000. But if you don’t have FIDE rating, this is not a problem and it shouldn’t stop you from taking this course. Some lines I show in this course can be used even if you are FIDE Master or International Master.

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

Sincerely,

Viktor

Who is the target audience?

​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.
