Planning, Evaluation & Fortress

Recently I’ve been inviting different IMs/GMs to make lessons and webinars for you. I hope you enjoyed those lectures!
Every coach has his “areas of specialization”: some are strong in attack, others have good positional understanding etc. Therefore, while learning lessons from various teachers you can build your COMPREHENSIVE chess knowledge.
When you don’t have any gaps in your chess education, your results will becomeGOOD and STABLE.
From my side, I do compare the results of different coaches, and select only the best ones for you.
So far there was a “guest coach” who got the biggest quantity of “Likes” from the students – this is Valeri Lilov with his lecture about Karpov’s Prophylaxis: LINK
With that said, I’m pleased to inform you that Lilov will conduct the next webinar for you on Sunday, 14 September. In this closed webinar, you’ll learn the practical hints for a proper middlegame play.
You can read the detailed info about the event, and sign yourself into this webinar here:
