Description

This course is about Chess Traps! Sometimes there are moves that appear to be following good principles but which are bad for specific tactical reasons. You make ordinary developing moves, but then you find out that you are trapped and your opponent gets advantage. In this course I show a few traps that you should know not to be trapped!

Of course, it's not possible to demonstrate all the possible opening mistakes here, but I tried to list the most popular ones. However, there are a number mistakes commonly made by beginners and novices in the opening stages of the game and I will show how to react to them.

This course consists of 15 lectures. In every lecture I cover a certain trap. Some traps are good and you can apply them during your games, other are bad and I demonstrate them for you only to learn how not to get trapped, if your opponent tries to outwit you.

I designed this course for beginners and club players with FIDE rating from 1200 to 1700. But if you don’t have FIDE rating, this is not a problem and it shouldn’t stop you from taking this course. Learn them from this course!

After finishing this course, you will learn some of the traps and may apply them during your games. I believe you will improve your performance!

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

​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.
