Description

This course will teach you how to play chess! I start from the very beginning.

I explain how to move and capture with your pieces and pawns in all details. I also tell you about special moves and rules in chess. I teach you the simplest ways to checkmate: how to checkmate with 2 rooks, with the only queen and with the only rook. 

And in the last lecture I explain you how to play the openning, what principles you should take into account, so you may apply them in your own games and make your pieces interact!

This course is designed for people, who want to learn how to play chess, but don’t know the rules. If you know the rules, but feel yourself unconfident when playing chess, because there was something unclear for you, you may also pass this course.

I believe after you pass this course, you will be able to play a chess game and finish by a checkmate. I also prepared quizzes for you, so you can check yourself!

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.
