Description

This course covers checkmating patterns:

  • Back-Rank Mates
  • Queen & Pawn Mates
  • Rook & Bishop Mates
  • Rook & Knight Mates
  • Bishop & Knight Mates
  • 2 Bishops Mates

This course really helps to see the whole board and to learn how to make your pieces interact and checkmate the enemy king with only 2 pieces!

I will demonstrate not only the concept of these tactical chess manoeuvres but also the logic behind finding these moves in your own chess games.

This course is broken down into 6 sections (one for each pattern). In each section you will find one or a few patterns and puzzles to solve.

Also each section contains an analysis of a game played between two chess grandmasters to demonstrate how effective these mating patterns can be. And finally I prepared a quizz for you to practice.

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.
