I will show you some fascinating games and you will understand what went wrong there and how to use it to your benefit. In the final section of the course you will get an opening repertoire for both colors. The suggested opening choice is strictly following the rules described in the course. There are also explanations about where to develop all your pieces.

There will also be some homework assignments and solutions in the next file. The homework is designed to strengthen the knowledge you have learned over the course.

The course consists of 4 sections.

Section 1: You will learn the 3 main rules of playing the opening. You will also discover the crucial detail about those rules. I will teach you what to do with your pawns, pieces and the king. You will learn where are the good places for your pieces and which are not so good and why.

Section 2: I will show you detailed analysis of 4 famous games where the losing side did not follow the first 2 rules of playing the opening. You will learn the ways to use mistakes of your opponent as well as avoid them yourself.

Section 3: We will deeply analyze another 4 famous games where the losing side failed to castle the king. You will learn the value of the rule as well as ways to exploit your opponents’ failure to follow the rule.

Section 4: I will give you my professional opinion about most common openings and the upsides and downsides of playing those. Then you will get the complete opening repertoire for white and for black. I will explain why I chose those openings for you and how exactly you should play those. Basically you will know (and understand!) your first 10 moves against ANY opening. Finally, you will receive some homework that would strengthen your understanding of opening principles regardless of the pawn structure.
