“Easy to understand. Covers helpful nuances. Adds good context and theory beyond the basics.” – Aaron Vannatter
This course is for aspiring chess players who know how the pieces move and understand how to use some tactics such as forks and skewers but have never had any formal chess training.
Through easy to understand diagrams and chess positions, I will take you through the thought process ofa master chess player and teach you everything you need to know to go from a mediocre player to a very strong one.
In this course you will learn how to find tactics over the board, make a strategic plan, and setup up your pieces for maximum effectiveness in the opening.
I have condensed information that took me many years of hard work into 16 powerful chess lessons. If you want to improve your chess in as short a time as possible, this is the course for you!
#2 Chess Tactics Essentials
Are you a beginning or hobby chess player who wants to start winning a LOT more games?
“Chess is 99 percent tactics.” – Richard Teichmann
This course breaks down the most frequent (yet powerful!) chess tactics so that anybody can pick them up and employ them against their opponents.
You will be learning these powerful chess tactics from a professional chess coach of more than 10 years who truly takes his students results seriously.
Each lecture has a companion PDF in the supplementary materials section which is highly recommended to be studied with the lecture over-the-board.
Students who use both the video lecture and its PDF companion will reap the best rewards in terms of their playing level and tactical ability but simply watching the lectures alone will still substantially boost any chess player’s tactical level and practical results.
If you need an extra nudge into the course, just listen to some of my wonderful student’s kind words!

This course is ideal for the people interested in being fluent in Chess tactics, and who also want to have fun doing it!
