“Why do Some Players
Play BETTER Than Others?”

Really, why? A lot of people play and study chess. However, only 1-3% of players have really good achievements (titles, prizes…). What is different about this successful minority from the rest?

It is NOT a matter of talent. I have observed thousands of different players, and I can state it with confidence. Yes, you need to have chess talent for the highest chess achievements (over 2600-2700 rating). However, anyone can become a titled player and get +200-300 rating points.

It depends on your TRAINING.
At the same time I know a lot of players who study chess 8 hours a day (more than many GMs), but don’t have any real progress. Thus, the major factor here is not how much you train, but HOW you train.
Here we come to one of my favourite topics – an effective training.

Lack of Chess School.

“Education in chess goes on in a most haphazard fashion.” (E.Lasker)

There is no system of education in chess. There was a system in former USSR (and it gave great results), but that has long passed.

A chess player (or a chess teacher) is a job; and the same applies to all other professions, it requires a special system of preparation.
For some strange reason many chess players don’t understand this. They think that it is enough to buy some chess books, to read them, to have some practice, and “voila” – you are a strong chess player. Smile

What if doctors (let’s say surgeons) start using the same method of learning? Luckily, they don’t do it. Otherwise they would sometimes cut off something by mistake. Smile

What is the Solution?

In order to progress in chess, you need to not just train, but to train the RIGHT things. You need to have a training program (training plan), which will give you a comprehensive system of chess knowledge. You need to acquire the necessary skills at the right time.

Also you need to use EFFECTIVE training methods, which REALLY give you improvement.

It is my intention to help you with for this purpose; I have developed a special course “Self-taught Grandmaster”.

If you want to progress in chess, BUT you:

  • Live in a small city.
  • Don’t have a chess coach.
  • Don’t have a lot of time for training.
  • Don’t have an opportunity to play in strong tournaments regularly.
  • Want to get MORE benefit out of your training.

Then my course is exactly for You!

What is the Point
of “Self-taught Grandmaster”?

I have combined the successful experience of: 
Thousands of my pupils.

Now you can get the most effective training methods, which have proved its high efficiency.
I will show you WHAT to do, HOW to do it and what MATERIALS you should use. You will get a clear guide, a clear map for your chess progress.

Chess course “Self-taught Grandmaster” contains the video lessons.

 Lesson-1: “How to Use Your Brain Effectively”.

The best FREE program for chess databases.

Where to find the HIGHEST quality chess games.

The best chess engines (and how to get them for FREE).

 Lesson-4: “Your Training Program.”
In the next few lessons I’ll tell you WHAT to study. I will give you a complete training program from the beginner to expert level.

In this lesson we will analyze the 1st block called “+300 Spurt”. It means that from the start you can get about 300 rating points relatively quickly. It works for players under 1700 and sometimes even under 2000 rating.

After this training block you will:

Overcome blunders.

Start playing well CONSTANTLY.

Beat weaker opponents easily.


 Lesson-5: “Chess School.”
This training block will make you a good intermediate player. I’ll tell you the main problem of self-trained players (and how to overcome it).
You’ll know exactly how (and why) stronger players win against weaker opponents.

 The bottom line is this: your chess results will become STABLE. This is a necessary factor for your further chess development.


 Lesson-6: “High School.”
Your next goal is to become A STRONG player. This is why you will now go to the “High School”. Here you will learn: 

What is the main difference between a strong and an intermediate player?

I will recommend you some good books for this level.


We will fix your chess weaknesses.

You will improve your opening knowledge.

You will develop your special style of playing.

And you will improve your planning skills.

The “High School” makes you a strong player and you will probably become a titled player after that.

 Lesson-7: “Breakthrough!”

After studying “High School” you will become a strong player and start taking part in strong competitions. Then you will be faced with a new problem: How to beat strong players?

What if I only have a limited amount of time for chess training?

Chess course “Self-taught Grandmaster”
contains the practical part.

The practical part will help you to turn your knowledge into practice. After a performing of a special set of training tasks, you will really get the appropriate SKILLS. This way you will get better in chess right after studying the course.

Including special anti-blunder training, rational time distribution training, tactical training and many more…
