Advanced Chess Lessons with FM Mike Ivanov

How to find the positional monster in you!

This course is meant to create an all-rounded approach to chess for students who have already learned tactics and attacking ideas. Instead of attacking blindly, this course will help you understand what type of pawn structures you should be going for, what type of pieces you need to have on the board in different positions, and how to convert your advantage or save a slightly worse position in endgames that will likely occur. As Bobby Fischer once said, “Tactics flow from a superior position”. The point of this course is to help you obtain those superior positions, and know why they’re superior.
