The Art of Exchange Sacrifice

04Nowadays it’s NOT enough to follow the basic chess rules like “fight for the centre”, “occupy weak squares” etc., Your opponent is well-aware of these fundamentals just as well as you. So, how can you overcome your opponents? You must have some EXTRA skillsthat most of the other players do NOT possess. One of such “secret weapons” is an exchange sacrifice (sacrifice of a rook for an opponent’s bishop or knight).Most of the players are aware about this technique, BUT can never use it in their own games. On the contrary, some great players like Aronian, Topalov, Kramnik and others have been using “an exchange sacrifice” REPEATEDLY to defeat the strongest rivals!  GM Vadim Milov will show you how YOU can implement this powerful technique into your games.

How to win a won game

07While playing a chess game, quite often you can obtain a SUPERIOR position. It could happen then thanks to your good opening preparation or sometimes your opponent plays badly. After that you face the famous question in chess: “How to win a won game?”  This is not as simple as it seems. An opponent gets tricky and tries to mix the things up. Often you have to play precise moves under time pressure. Then you can spoil a good game, not getting a well-deserved win. Of course you can blame “that lucky guy” (your opponent) for that, or grieve for“an oversight in time trouble”. That’s what most players do in such cases. However, obviously there’s a better option. You can learn appropriate techniques and always finish your opponents off! Look at “chess killers” like Topalov, Carlsen, Adams etc. In a worse position, nobody can escape from them. If your wish to acquire those skills of “a chess killer” – you have to own this webinar.

The Art of Counter Attack

milov350In a chess game, when an opponent is attacking, weaker players will usually ONLY think about defense. Strong players understand that you should notmake defensive moves automatically. Very often you will have something morepowerful to play and you should look for it.
So, if you are asked this question: How to defend against a strong attack? The best way is “COUNTER ATTACK”. Many strong grandmasters look for counter attacks at the first instance and only then think about defending the position. You must always look for the active and the best

My Thinking System

confused1Nowadays, there are tons of new chess books and videos developed. Each of them suggests to you dozens of rulesplansvariations, etc. However, on a practical level, this does NOT help you that much. Actually, it can mix things up even more.
All those ideas make sense. Each of them follows a certain chess rule. But you can’t play them all. You’ll have a hard time figuring out the best move.
