What is “a webinar”?
During a webinar, you have communication with a coach in live mode. A coach tells you the tasks, while you can ask your questions. This is real TRAINING, which develops your SKILLS. Hence, you’ll be able to improve your chess strength properly during the webinar.
A video lesson or a text article provides some information to you. Any chess player can find tons of information about a chess game on the Internet. So what? Has this overabundance of content made you a strong player? Probably not.
Information does not affect your play. Only a new SKILL can do so.
““Playing for a WIN””
How to play for a WIN when the tournament situation demands a desperate win? How to plan both psychologically and strategically, conduct the game and get a favorable result?
You’ll learn to do exactly this into GM Dlugy’s webinar.

GM Maxim Dlugy
It was in Moscow at 6 years of age that Maxim first developed his interest in chess from his grandfather Max Ritov, an International Master who played on one team with David Bronstein. Maxim was completely taken by chess and spent a lot of time playing adults.
By the time the family moved to Queens in New York Maxim was devouring chess books. In the summer of 1977 he was taken to the famous Manhattan Chess Club, where young Maxim dazzled club members. In his first event he scored three out of four against the clubs top juniors.
Jack Collins, who gained near legendary status by being an early teacher of Bobby Fischer, became Maxim’s first formal trainer. After that he worked with USCF Senior Master Jeffrey Kastner, then with VitalyZaltsman, under whose training he became known as one of the world’s most talented young players. Later on Dlugy has continued his successful chess career.
