Do You Want Chess Books to Publish Your Games As Examples Of Outstanding Endgame Play With a Crystal Clear Style of Playing?  (somewhere between Capablanca and Karpov)

With the course “AN ENDGAME EXPERT” this will definitely become your reality!

How to win in modern chess?

Today everyone has access to huge chess databases. Everyone can learn plenty of opening lines and numerous ‘typical’ middlegame positions. Any chess player can prepare something against you using powerful computer programs. So the problem is – how can you win?

In a chess game you should attack an opponent’s weakest square. Likewise in a preparation you should “attack” an opponent’s weakest side.

Hit in the WEAKEST point!

The majority of modern chess players do NOT have a real (deep) strategic understanding. They can attack and use tactics. However, even titled players are often weak in strategic positions. Computer engines can show you the move, but they cannot EXPLAIN it. That’s why players know how to play, but don’t UNDERSTAND it! So, how do we use our opponents’ low level of chess understanding to our advantage? You should go into an endgame!

An Endgame Is A Clear Strategy!

Endgame books mainly analyze theoretical positions. However, in 95% of situations, you will reach a practical endgame position with many pieces still on the board. An endgame theory can NOT help here (whereas a strategic understanding will!).

That is why learning thousands of theoretical positions will NOT help. I say:“Leave this titanic and pointless work to your opponents!”

“An Endgame Improvement” Amplifies Your Positional Play Automatically.

This all has to do with a strategic understanding.

Remember the famous endgame masters: Capablanca, Flohr, Smyslov, Karpov, Kramnik… They all have a crystal-clear caliber of playing. They all almost never make mistakes. They all almost never lose games in the opening.

Their deep strategic understanding prevents them from making mistakes! They attained this understanding while perfecting the endgame skills!

That is why Capablanca recommended to start learning chess from the endgame phase! Endgame expertise bears positive influence on all other parts of your game as well.

  • Pawel Panas (Poland)
    It really works!! When I think about the new course Grandmaster Igor Smirnov ‘An Endgame Expert’ I recall the words of the great Jose Raul Capablanca. He said that the study of the endgames is not only relevant to the endgame, but to chess in general. Grandmaster Igor Smirnov teaches the properties of each pieces. He gives us essentials knowledge about planning in the endgames. Most importantly: this is not academic knowledge. Grandmaster Igor Smirnov shows ‘in real time’ how to play the endgames – and you will not find it in any chess book. This course is truly amazing: essential, practical, systematized. No unnecessary information, and finally…it really works!! No doubt, this is best of all existing chess courses.

  • Kenneth Hills (USA)
    “I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed and benefited from the material.” Great work Igor. I always look forward to your courses. Really loved the endgame course – have finished the video but not done the practical part yet but will. You have actually made studying the endgame fun and interesting and can improve practical playing strength. I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed and benefited from the material you produce. You present it so well. Going to University to study how to teach, as you have done, has proved really valuable. Thanks! If I ever see you in a Pub, the first two rounds are on me!

    My son and I have gained significant progress in our playing level. This course is just fantastic……..!!! It simplifies complicated theory but yet provides powerful chess understanding. My son and I have gained significant progress in our playing level. Recently my son was beating a senior player who might have been playing chess for more than 10 years… I highly recommend it to any player who is tired of studying hundreds of pointless theories. Thanks, Igor!

  • Goujon Antoine (France)
    The point is that I quickly felt the results. Dear Igor, Thank you for you help. I appreciate it very much. First of all, I want to tell you that I am very fond of your courses. I like very much the practical way you teach chess. The point is that I quickly felt the results and I felt much more confortable about my thinking process. So thank you for this ! (but it’s also hard work….pratical parts are tough job!) I already had nice victories thank to you and I obviously intend to buy your next courses.

  • Jai Prakash Singh (India)
    After going through the entire “An Endgame Expert” course, I am pretty sure that this is the best end-game training course one can find. The high point of this course is clear instructions and high quality voice of GM and videos which get the solutions of extremely complex middle to endgame transition situations straight in the listener’s head. GM has been quite honest with his explanations and recommends standard chess endgames also to be studied with this course. He says that the course covers 90% of the endgame knowledge and rest 10% one can get from standard endgame books.

  • Mark Tapesky
    I am now getting better results. In my chess games I am able to beat lower and players of the same rating as me (mainly from the opening and middlegame). However playing against stronger opposition eg. Candidate Masters, Fide Masters, I would find myself in an ‘equal’ endgame. Thinking these positions were easy/dead draws I would make a few moves and then find out my position was completely lost. After going through Igor’s Endgame Expert course I now have a plan in these practical endgame positions and know what to aim for in the middlegame-endgame transition. GM Smirnov showed me how to play these position and how to use my pieces. I am now getting better results, and more importantly I am enjoying this neglected phase of the chess game much more.
