It will teach you so much that you will that I believe that you will instantly play chess much better after going through this one course.
It comes with over 5 hours of video in seven lessons and a few bonus lessons. You also have a series to practical exercises to solve based on the video lessons in this course. There are over one hundred exercises and puzzles to solve that can really help you completely understand the subject matter. The instructions in the video lessons are clear and well presented. The video lessons are quite enjoyable and include a lot of concrete examples. The material is easy to learn and to understand. I would say that Igor Smirnov did such a great job that it’s worth going over again. You will lean positional principles and strategic elements applicable to all your games.
I really enjoyed the lessons on all the various pawn structure. I also liked the in debt lesson on the value of bishops and how to best use them in your games.
