Chess Course for High Performance: Grandmaster Package

Chess Study

Grandmaster Package is an intensive one-year chess course with professional teacher support.This is like studying a series of chess books, which follow a structured program and an integrated training method, with support from chess teachers who are always happy to answer your questions.

The course teaches at an advanced level the most important aspects for chess improvement: strategy, calculation, middlegames and complex endgames.

At the end of the course, the student is expected to have acquired both excellent theoretical knowledge and practical skills at the level of a strong chess master (22002300 FIDE rating).

INTERMEDIATE ADVANCED The course is designed for advanced players and serious students who have set themselves high goals in chess. When they start the course, most of our students are in the range of 16002000 rating level and they gain 200400 rating points during the first year. That's a huge progress. See student testimonials.

BEGINNER INTERMEDIATEWe also have students who start the course with just a 1200 rating. The lessons are explained so that beginners can also understand and follow the course. The exercises may not be easy for beginners, but this is well compensated for by the solutions that explain HOW the idea could be found. This is much appreciated by our students.

With our thorough explanations, beginners learn chess the right way from the start and they can therefore achieve the most spectacular rating increases usually 500800 points in a year. More important than the immediate gain in rating points is that our course builds a solid chess foundation and teaches a correct way of thinking, which is essential for an aspiring chess master.

The course follows a complete, structured program for one year and one month (13 months). Check out the chess course program (PDF file).

The course program is designed for about 7 hours of study and training per week. It can help you to manage and organise the time that you spend learning chess and so ultimately save a lot of effort that would otherwise be wasted. You can also study at your own pace because your account and your access to the lessons do not expire.

The 'secret' behind the greatly successful Russian coaching system is intensive individual work.The students are assigned instructive games and positions to analyze individually at home. If the students have questions, they write them down carefully (together with any analysis and annotations) to be discussed with the coach in the next session.

This method was developed by Mikhail Botvinnik, former World Chess Champion. As a result of his coaching, three of his pupils also became World Chess Champions: Anatoly Karpov, Garry Kasparov and Vladimir Kramnik! Then, probably the best chess trainer of all time, Mark Dvoretsky, continued with the same method. He selected instructive positions to be solved individually by his pupils. Many of his students became top chess grandmasters.

We use the same method in the Grandmaster Package.

The course is really large and comes with a wide variety of materials that are of increasing complexity. The following samples are from the beginning of the course.

Using the written lessons (presented in PDF format), our students can use a real board for chess study. As it's strongly recommended by serious chess trainers, if you want to progress at chess you should use a real chess board.

Garry Kasparov: "Solve using a board. Solve [problems] at the chess board - a real one - not at the computer screen. If you want to make real improvement, real progress, try to stick with chess pieces. [...]Make sure that you solve everything at the chess board."

Weve selected to share with you a few reviews from some of the students who have completed our chess course.
