Why this course was created?

“This course is about the chess pieces. In chess, it is important to place your pieces in active squares, to coordinate them together and to find an active plan. In this new course you’ll learn how to play effectively with your pieces.

After the study of this course, you’ll be able to find good squares for your pieces, the weaknesses of your opponents, understand better the game stages and find the correct area of the board to attack and develop your initiative.”

Key topics covered in this course

In this lesson, Lilov will talk about the key principles of piece coordination and activity, as well as some of the most valuable things that people often don’t realize about this type of situations.

“In this lesson, Lilov will now talk about a very interesting and easy example. You have to understand that to actually get good at recognizing difficult examples, you have to first get better with the simple ones. One of the ways this happens is by actually looking at straightforward positions.”

“In this lesson, Lilov will talk about what pieces actually are, when it comes to the opponent’s pieces. The idea of the opponent’s pieces is very important because you need to understand what they can do. Literally, think about it this way. Any piece of the opponent that is too far ahead or too far advanced becomes dangerous.”

In this lesson, Lilov will talk about a really incredible example which illustrates what I call the most important one when it comes down to piece activity. I don’t want to tell it to you, but rather I’d like to show it to you because that’s how you’re going to realize and be able to appreciate the value of these principles when it comes down to using them.

“In this lesson, Lilov will discuss why piece development and coordination is quite difficult, one of the major problems being how to make the pieces work together.”

“We have a very important position where Black has a set of forces that just look good. With all of his pieces coordinated, they will target the enemy pieces”

“This lesson discusses the game that was played between Konstantinopolsky and Kotov, two very strong Grandmasters.

“In this lesson, Lilov will analyze a game where White is a pawn up and well developed but with some specific problems to solve”

In this lesson, Lilov will talk about a couple of games and examples. I’m going to play around against real people to show you how you can create good piece activity, even out of bad or difficult situations.

This lesson talks about the idea of pieces, the way they work and the way it all comes together.

This final video is dedicated to practice. Now, you already know all the main strategic principles of the game of chess. And, in this lesson, you’ll put them in practice, so that, when you start playing your practical games, and it’s your move, you’ll know exactly what you should be doing.

It’s going to be a pretty cool examination for you because we are going to see the games of Garry Kasparov and you’ll be analyzing his moves. I will be asking your opinion: How would you play in those positions? And you will try to guess the moves played by Garry Kasparov, who is one of the best chess players of all times.

It is necessary to put the received knowledge into practice. There are 8 practical tasks (over 50+ games) in this course which will help you to understand and remember the ideas of the course better.
