My birthday & New Opening Course

Today is my birthday and I’ll try my best to keep you in a holiday mood! :)
One student sent just sent nice a greeting card:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Perhaps I should publish more of my photos… In this one there was a parrot on my shoulder, and it required a lot of creativity for the student to get rid of it. :)

In any case, thanks a lot for your greetings! It’s always a big pleasure for me to see the successes of my students, while your appreciation motivates me to keep making new and useful lessons for you.

Another great thing is the release of the NEW opening course, “The Grandmaster’s Openings Laboratory – 2”.
It’s quite amusing that the release concurred with my birthday, because initially I’d planned to publish the new course in June… :) Ultimately it took a lot more time, and I’m sorry for that. I just didn’t want to compromise on the quality and that’s why it took so long.

You can read the detailed description of the course by clicking its image above.
As I promised earlier, there will be “special offers” during the first days of release. Thus my long-term students will get the best conditions. The special offers will expire on November the 2nd.

SPECIAL OFFER #1:
You can get a 10 USD discount for the new course: “The Grandmaster’s Openings Laboratory – 2“. Indicate the discount coupon GOL2 while placing your order and it will reduce the price for you.
——————
The new course complements my previous opening course “The Grandmaster’s Openings Laboratory” (LINK). You should not buy the 2nd course if you don’t possess the 1st one.
At the same time, I do understand that buying 2 courses simultaneously can be expensive. That’s why I’ll give you 10 USD discount for the 1st opening course as well. You can use the same discount coupon GOL2 while purchasing “The Grandmaster’s Openings Laboratory” course and it will reduce its price.

SPECIAL OFFER #2:
The first 50 buyers will get a free BONUS of my personal support while studying the course. You’ll be able to send me your questions and get them answered. This will ensure that you digest the course’s material well.
The next 100 buyers will get my answers as well, but will not be able to ask their questions.
Please note that 150 is not so much when compared to 20,000+ of my on-line students. However, I can’t serve too many people personally and that’s why the amount is limited.

Initially I had doubts if I should provide any other bonuses. But today I’m in a good mood, so here we go. :)

SPECIAL OFFER #4:
Perhaps I’ve never made so many “special offers”. This will be the last one.
Most of my long-term students have already studied my previous courses. However, there are some new people here as well. If you happen to be in this group, let me give you a piece of advice.
BEFORE studying specific opening lines, you should learn the fundamental chess principles. Otherwise you’ll have to memorize variations mechanically, which is a dull and less productive work.

That’s why before studying the opening course; I would recommend that you learn one of the base courses:
  • The Grandmaster’s Secrets: LINK or
  • The Grandmaster’s Positional Understanding: LINK
22-300x300understanding-cover
Again, I understand that buying a few courses together may be expensive. That’s why I’ll provide 15% discount for the above 2 courses (you may pick the one you like better).
While placing your order, please indicate the discount coupon BASE15. This will automatically cut 15% off the price.

Time for Action
Let me remind you that all of these special offers will only last until the 2nd of November.

I hope you will enjoy the new opening course. It’s designed to improve not only your opening play, but improve your overall chess strength as well.
The guys who assisted me in development of the course have already benefited from it. Shane (he’s my friend, who helped to correct mistakes in my English) raised his Internet rating from 1590 to 1950. Sagar (who helped me with opening analyses) in recent tournaments drew with Black pieces against 2556 and 2487 rated players by using the openings from the course (I’ve included these games in the course). Now it’s your turn. :)

P.S. If you purchased the opening course, please take a moment to leave your feedback about it in comments below. Other people are eager to see it.
