There is so much information about chess. Just watching videos is useful, but often is not enough. It's very important to at least have a system which contains some theory and a lot of PRACTICE. Recording this course I tried to solve this problem. This course contains everything you need for real progress. However, in this course, I just point you in the right direction and explain difficult moments. After that, I expect you to solve "homework". It must help you fully understand the information and your level is going to rise.
This course is good for beginners (0-1600 ELO), but don't worry if you have little experience because it helps you revise everything, get a system and practice. Of course, if you are 2000+ ELO rating player, this course might be too easy for you. I tried to use a detailed explanation, If anything was still too hard for you, I am waiting for your questions.
I want to give you some recommendations:
After watching the video, try to solve and figure out all homework. Yes, it's hard but super useful.
Try to play chess since module 3. Time control for you is Rapid (15 mins or more). Playing blitz(5 and less) for beginners is just for fun.
Don't waste your time. If something easy for you or I am speaking too slowly, make video speed 1.25x or even 1.5x :)))
Use subtitles I added to this series. Inside them, I tried to fix most of the mistakes I made during the explanation.
I hope you take advantage of this course. I did my best for you. Good luck, and see you at the chess tournaments!
Who this course is for:
- Beginner chess players
- Players, who are not far from basics
- 1600 and less Rating FIDE players
