with Grandmaster Maxim Dlugy

[50% OFF!]

Every club player wants to have a Grandmaster level opening preparation. However, once you start working on the openings you realize exactly how time consuming that is. You may spend days on studying a single line, which you’ll probably never see in any of your games.

And that's very disappointing...

The theory found in books is generally very advanced, with zillions of main-lines, sub-lines, sub-variations, off-beat lines… you name it. To understand just a little bit of a single opening you need to go through dozens of variations, and unless you have a photographic memory that simply won’t work.  Club players cannot spend months studying a single opening for black pieces!

We understand that!

How wonderful would be to spend just 2 hours of your time and to understand the main ideas and plans behind 20 different openings? Would you feel more confident playing your next game if you knew that there are no d4-lines out there that can catch you off-guard?

Well, here is your chance. GM Maxmim Dlugy has compiled his 20 years of opening theory experience into a single crash course.

You won’t learn how to outplay Kasparov or Carlsen out of the opening. What you will learn is how to play high quality opening moves against any under 2200 rated opponent. That’s exactly what >95% of club players need!

In fact, GM Dlugy personally used some of those ideas and moves to beat IMs and GMs! The video course contains 22 bite-sized lessons which are easy to understand. GM Dlugy does an excellent job presenting the most important ideas of the openings so that you can start applying them right away.

This is NOT another “theoretical” course. This is a pure practical advice teaching you the moves that win games.  Even if you hate opening theory, this course is so simple and easy-to-understand; you’ll fall in love with it!

Time to get started!
