[FREE!] Get the wins you deserve by Converting like Capablanca!

We’ve all experienced it: as you get better at chess, you face tougher opposition. And, in these games, you need to win 2 battles:

  1. Get an advantage
  2. Convert that advantage

Tactics will help you with #1, but for #2 you need technique.

I believe tactics alone can – if you’re really good – get you to 2000 Elo but if you have dreams of going beyond that level, you need to be able to control and convert positions.

So how do you learn master level technique? Learn from the master! There is no better player to model your positional technique on than Jose Raul Capablanca.  He had a genius for finding simple looking, easy-to-understand moves that were deeply powerful.

The great Bobby Fischer openly admitted he learned the secrets of technique from the games of Capablanca – which is about as big a recommendation as you can get!

 

Now I’m going to teach you how to control and convert positions with a couple of Capablanca classics taken from my brand new, 9.5 hour Chess Strategy Masterclass:

Some of the things we cover:

  • How to use Capablanca’s legendary “petite combinaisons – positional tactics and in-between moves that damage your opponent’s position and soften them up for the kill.
  • The art of making progress: you’re a pawn up but your rival has blocked the position. Now what? These positions are so easy to mess up – see how Capablanca won with this brilliant king maneuver!
  • The principle of two weaknesses… Capablanca was a master of winning games by attacking a weakness, making his opponent use all their resources to maintain it – then switching target!

Don’t let your opponents steal a draw (and precious rating points) from you.

5 Rules for Mastering Chess Calculation

every chess player wants to improve their calculation. Being a good calculator is perhaps one of the most important skills that will literally guarantee your success in the game. Computers are great a example.
However that’s where difficulties begin. Calculation is also perhaps one of the most difficult things to learn, it requires constant practice and good understanding of what to calculate, when and how. 
Surprisingly there aren’t many resources covering this topic. GM Kotov’s evergreen analysis on finding the candidates moves becoming outdated [and here is why].
That’s why I want to present you with FM Krykun’s modern approach to calculation, that any practical player should follow.

[Free download for 3 days] Genius Decoded: The Magic of Mikhail Tal!!

We’re delighted to announce we’ve got Team USA coach GM Alex Lenderman back with a brand new Master Method that reveals the chess secrets of the world champions! Alex is a (grand)master at extracting secrets from chess games – it’s hard work, but he’s done it for you and is ready to teach you it all!

Get this free chapter where Alex decodes the magic of Mikhail Tal and see how Alex turns great games into chess improvement gold.

Click here to get GM Lenderman’s Genius Decoded: The Magic of Tal for free!

 

 

Mikhail Tal was known as “the Magician from Riga” for his incredible ability to create attacks out of nowhere, finding astounding sacrifices to conjure up chaos for his shell-shocked opponents. But Alex reveals there’s a science behind the magic – golden rules you can learn today.

Some of the things to look forward to:

  • Mind-melting tactics: One of the secrets of Tal’s genius is he found ways to keep attacking when any “normal” GM would play it safe. With White threatening g4, most players would retreat with …Nf6 and ….Bd7 after g4. The attack would be over. Tal, challenging Botvinnik in a World Championship match – as Black – burned the house down with …Nf4!!

  • More than mate: GM Lenderman has unearthed a great secret from Tal’s play: how Tal guaranteed winning positions even when his opponent defended successfully. Anyone who survived a Tal onslaught would think the hard work was done. But then they notice their poor piece activity, weak pawns and slowly realize Tal had seen this all along!

  • Initiative is everything: Tal had the magical ability to keep his victims 1 move from safety at all times. Alex explains how you can copy Tal’s method for permanent pressure!

10 Chess Principles You Need to Know

From a very early moment in our chess journey, we are being explained the importance of the chess principles and that we should always use them as a guideline during our games.

While chess has developed a lot in recent years and the use of engines has encouraged play based sometimes solely on calculation, the classics remain very much alive and we still need to use their past wisdom in order to call ourselves complete players.

Here are some of those basic principles that every player should know, grouped on the 3 phases of the game.​​​​​​​

It’s not a secret that opening preparation makes up approximately 30-60% of success, depending on your current level.

Most club players make a serious mistake by studying openings “in a vacuum”, isolating it from other parts of the game. When theoretical knowledge ends they feel like a fish out of water not having any further plans or ideas.

The good news is… there is an easy fix!

You can skyrocket your winning chances by simply learning typical piece maneuvers, common setups and checkmating patterns.
