IM Mat Kolosowski Reveals...

How Masters Win in the Middlegame... by Controlling What Happens in the Center

Every chess player knows the CENTER is critical… but most just stick a pawn on d4 or e4, drop a knight on f3 and start attacking.

And they wonder why it doesn’t work...

However, their bad habit is your golden ticket…

Learn the secrets of advanced central control and you will:

  • Enjoy hyperactive pieces that dominate every key square, paralyzing your rival’s play.
  • Be able to lock or open the center when it favors you, leaving your opponent scrambling to react.
  • Know which flank to attack on and where to place your pieces for the best chance of success.
  • Find deep strategic ideas that give you a winning endgame – if your opponent lasts that long!

Very few club players really understand all there is to know about the center… but YOU can be one of them.

In his new 10 hour course, IM Mat Kolosowski reveals the many secrets of central control - and how you can use them to dominate your games.

Some of what IM Kolosowski reveals:

  • Powerful attack formations in closed positions. Just when your opponent has settled in for a slow maneuvering game, you blow open the position and lay siege to the enemy king! See how the great Larry Christiansen used this idea to turn this position into a win just 5 moves later.
  • The 2 things you need to crush with a queenside avalanche without having to worry about getting mated. (See how Kasparov lost to this in just 31 moves as White in chapter 6!)
  • How to use the center to maximize your space advantage – and what to do next to convert that space into material superiority.

IM Kolosowski has taken these advanced concepts and presented them in a way that any ambitious player will be able to understand and use. Now it is your move!
