Calculate Till Mate

Description of the course:

Modern chess = DYNAMIC chess

Modern chess, thanks to our ‘silicon friends’ Fritz, Houdini, and company, have advanced to a level that is never seen before!
Just have a look at today’s GM games – full of tactical twists and turns, intense fight for the initiative, sacrifices for dynamic compensation, and mind-boggling complications in ALL phases of the game.
Gone Are The Days When You Can Single-Mindedly Follow An Abstract Plan And Win Games!
True, positional play and strategic understanding are still important. But…
If you do NOT have a SHARP EYE for tactics
If you do NOT have an EFFICIENT calculation technique
If you do NOT have CRYSTAL-CLEAR visualization skills
…You will continuously get outclassed by players who are strong in these departments.
You will LOSE to a tactical oversight after playing 40 good moves game after game after game.
You will NOT realize your FULL chess potential.
You only have two choices: adapt to this trend or be left out frustrated as your chess results rot away and your progress stalled.
So what is the improving chess amateur to do!?
Are you still with me? Have you decided to keep up with the trend and play DYNAMIC chess? Good! That goes to show that you really want to get better at chess. But now, we come to another cross-road… another branching point where you have to make a crucial choice.
When it comes to training tactics, calculation, and visualization skills, you ONLY have 2 options.
The First Option: To Do What Everyone Else Have Been Doing
And that involves:
(1) solving truckloads of tactical exercises and
(2) reading or watching game analysis of strong tactical GMs.
Take a close and objective look at the chess DVDs, databases, training software & programs, etc. You will soon realize that, while their titles are different, they are published by different authors, ALL of them only offer either or both of the above training methods.
So what’s the problem with that? A BIG ONE I’d have to say!
I’m pretty sure you have solved & waded through thousands of tactical exercises yourself, and watched GMs like Anand, Shirov, Kasparov, and other heavy-weights analyze their very best and most entertaining games.
Here’s an honest question that needs an honest answer. By doing the above OVER and OVER again…
Can You HONESTLY Say That Your Tactical Skills Got BETTER, Your Calculation Got More EFFICIENT, And Your Chess Vision Got SHARPER?
I bet NO, otherwise, you wouldn’t be here in search of a SOLID and RELIABLE way to take your dynamic chess skills to the next level!
Yes, the well-known methods are lacking.
They are easy to do: just solve puzzles and check the solution, sit back and relax as your favorite players comment their games. However, when it comes to the improving your game, they’re a cut or two short.
You can stick with the traditional methods of training your tactics, calculation, and visualization skills… which DON’T bring significant progress.
OR, you can go for the Second Option…
To Use A COMPLETE Training System That’s Been Used Only By My SELECT Chess Students And Close Friends…
One That Has CONSISTENTLY Brought Success!
Increase in their chess rating by leaps and bounds (100-300 rating pointsincrease).
Win more tournaments and bag BIGGER and BETTER prizes.

  1. “This new course is only for serious students.”

    Kesaris Aggelos (Greece):

    Hi to all, I am A. Kesaris from Ioannina Greece. I am working 1 year with grandmaster mr. I. Smirnov and must admit the huge improvement that I noticed not only in my chess career, but in my life in general. I learned how to succeed my goals and how to insist on a specific goal until i succeed it.

    One of my bigest weakness as a chess player is that I can’t calculate well the variations. I had noticed many times in my games, analyzing them with the computer, that I have lost many opportunities to give the final blow.

    I know many theoritician chess players who can easily give new thoeries, but even them they can’t apply it in practice. Through this course I learned all the practical tips and I can easily apply them in my games.

    The winner is acting. They do everything to get what they want! GM Smirnov said is clear. The new courses are only for serious students. If you do not feel ready to join our team, do not feel guilty … Maybe you can in other life who knowes…

    Now I should go because i have to continue my study … I want to perfect all my new weapons, and beet everybody!
  2. “A revolutionary change in my Middle game”

    Bidyut Bikash Handique (India):

    It was a huge surprise for me, when I first time came across this course. I found a course for which, I had been looking for a long time.

    This course is belonged to those players who are suffering from several drawbacks in their Middle game play, i.e, poor system of calculation, not finding the best move at the critical moment, always spending much time in making a crucial decision and lack of visualization.

    After completing this course, I have increased my confidence level to such an extent, resulting 14th consecutive wins in playchess and increasing 160 point within 3 days there, which gave me a revolutionary change in my play and of course it was a dream for me at one time.

    I have to agree that this course “Calculate Till Mate” is a gateway to those players like me who are suffering from middle game inconsistency.

    Everything is clear to me now, and I can handle the middle game situation more comfortably than I did before studying this course. I appreciate GM Smirnov in this regard for not hesitating to reveal the secrets of calculation, the way GMs apply. I also promote this course to all my students without any hesitation. .

  3. “I should be getting a norm for a master soon”

    Alexander Bai (United States):

    I first encountered Mr.Smirnov on with some of his video lessons. I was impressed with his clear teaching and managed to apply some of his principles in my game immediately after viewing. That is how I found his website, with his full courses.

    I first purchased the course “GMs Secrets” before this one. It was very useful to me: Before I had been training in the wrong way,(like doing a lot of “White/Black to play and win puzzles) and got rather low results from my time spent. Now my improvement is steady and satisfactory.

    I have always had problems with calculation, so I considered purchasing the new course. When I saw the price of “Calculate Till Mate”, I honestly felt doubtful that it may not be worth it. How totally wrong I was!
    The course explained everything I had not understood about calculation and the questions that I had; Everything you needed to know about calculation in one package.

    In the middle of the course, I played a few internet games and got a surge in rating, winning a few games against opponents I had struggled with before. I even managed to generate a combination versus a strong computer(Colossus :rated 2600+ on ICC in a rapid game), corking multiple combinations into a winning endgame-Without the ideas from the course, I highly doubt I would have even considered some of the ideas.

    This course gives me something I can apply and use in all of my games.

    After a serious study of your courses, I have obtained what you mentioned in the course’s description – the “results”. I have just won second place in a major tournament, starting as one of the botton seeds. I played versus many players I had been of afraid of before and won, getting a nice prize money. I should also be getting a norm for a master soon. I will definitely be recommending these courses to other chess players.

    Of course, this will provide you with good progress, but don’t think it is a simple way to get yourself a few hundred points quickly. A lot of hard work is still necessary to apply and automate these ideas in the course. I am still practicing these ideas constantly. Smirnov has provided you with all the stuff you need to know; Train on them and your results will be tremendous!
