Description

This course is about rook endgames. At least 50% of all endings are rook endgames. If you know how to play, what plan to apply, you will increase your chances to win the game.

This course consists of 6 sections. The first one is devoted to the Philidor and Lucena positions and in other I cover different motifs, which you can apply when you play rook endgame.

These motifs are:

  • Occupying the 7th rank
  • Using an open file or rank
  • How to play with or against passed pawns
  • How to use rook activity
  • How to use pawn weaknesses


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. This course will also help you to improve your calculating skills.

After finishing this course, you may become an expert at rook endings and win more games even if position is equal.

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.
