Do you want to reach the HIGHEST chess goals? Do you want to become not just a strong player, but an EXTREMELY strong one? Then use “Your Winning Plan” – the most direct way for a chess success!


Chess is inherently a strategic game. That’s why strategic skills are the most important thing in chess.They allow you to understand what you should do in any position. Chess players usually call it “a chess understanding”.

In fact it is not so difficult to study some opening lines or theoretical endgame positions. Players experience biggest problems in complex middlegame positions, when they are not sure what to do.

Please, remember the strong chess players you know. How do they win against weaker players? They create complex strategic positions and gradually overplay an opponent. They use their better chess understanding.

So what is the problem?

Everyone heard about “a chess understanding”. So why didn’t everyone study it? There are 2 main reasons:

1. Most players don’t know what “a chess understanding” actually is.

A chess understanding mainly implies your planning skills. If you understand a position, it means that you know what to do here. Thus it means that you can find the right plan.

2. There are no educational materials about it.

It is the hardest topic really. It is very difficult to systematize knowledge about a middlegame planning and to integrate them in a clear practical system.
That’s why 99% of authors even don’t try to do it. How many chess books do you know, which offer an integrate system of a middlegame play?

Ok, Nimczowitsch’s “My system” is pertinent. Is there anything else? Well, there are a few other similar books, but anyway it is a very short list. Nimczowitsch did a great work certainly. However his system is not full and quite difficult for a practical usage (even Nimczowitsch had some problems with it). Also a lot of time has gone since that time. Modern chess has developed a lot.

That’s why I decided to create the course “Your Winning Plan”.

It took a long time and a lot of efforts to create such product. With pride I present you the final result.
The course “Your Winning Plan” gives you an integrate system of a middlegame planning. Using this unique method you will be able to find the right plan in any position.

This will give you a deep chess understanding and will make you not just a strong player, but an extremely strong one!

“I Guarantee Your Chess Progress!”

While reading chess books, I often was wondering how the authors can offer us numerous quantities of abstract rules?? Obviously there is no way to use such information practically. I think that it happens because the authors don’t feel RESPONSIBILITY for their work!

I give you the PRACTICAL system, which can (and should!) be applied right after the course’s study.

I am sure that you will REALLY increase your chess power, because this system was already tested by me and my pupils (and it proved its effectiveness!).

    Important Generalities

    This lesson will give you the essential information about a planning. After a study of this lesson you will know:
    + Why different strategic books don’t work in a practical game play.
    + Important generalities about a chess strategy.
    + Why is planning so important and what most players don’t understand.
    + What is the main difference between a strong player and a not so good one?
    + What strong players use to beat others?
    + What exactly is “a chess understanding” and how to develop it?
    + How to predict a game continuation for many moves ahead?

  • Lesson 1

    The Best Time for a Planning

    In chess books you have probably seen the recommendation “to compose a plan in critical positions”. However they don’t say how to detect those critical positions. That’s why this trite rule is useless.
    I will be telling you how Grandmasters really think in a practical game. You will know the specific tips, which you will be able to apply right after a study of this lesson.

  • Lesson 2

    How to Compose a Winning Plan

    In this lesson I will tell you what exactly you should do and exactly how you should think to create the right plan.
    + The universal scheme, which allows finding the best plan in ANY position.
    + Which plan is the best in most positions?
    + The most important strategic rules regarding to the planning.
    + 3 types of situations when you should attack on a side.
    + How to detect whether you should worry about an opponent’s plan or not?
    + Why the aggressive attacker players lose regularly? How to avoid their most typical mistake?
    + How exactly the center bears influence on a planning?

  • Lessons 3-7

    Specific plans for different center types

    Everyone knows about a center and different center types. However, most players don’t know how to use such knowledge in a practical game.
    In the lessons 3-7 we will analyze how the universal scheme of a planning (presented in the previous lessons) works in different typical positions.
    Thus you will get the unique collection of the ready-made plans. In 95% of situations it will be enough for you to simply use one of1 these plans to win a game!

  • Lesson 8

    Two Universal Keys

    In this lesson I will give you 2 universal keys, which are applicable for any position. They will help you not just to create a plan, but to create the most effective plan.
    Often it is enough to only use one of these keys to win a game without any problems.
    Also we will continue training the universal scheme of a plan composition. You will see how it is possible to systematize separate positional rules to remember and to use all of them easily in a practical game.
    This will help you to use your previous knowledge (from your past trainings) most effectively and to get practical effect from them.

  • Lesson 9

    How to Realize Your Winning Plan

    In the previous lessons we have studied how to find the right plan. In this lesson you will learn how to realize that plan correctly. I will show you in a real time mode how Grandmasters composes plans. You will see that it is not so hard actually (if you know the right way).
    How to figure out the best way for the realization of your plan?

  • Lesson 10

    Grandmasters’ Secrets of Planning

    Previous lessons were aimed for making you a strong player. This lesson will help you to become an EXTREMELY strong player! These advices are your guide “how to be on the TOP”.
    This is probably the most powerful part of the course. I have never shared these secrets with a huge public and I doubt if any other GM ever decide to do it.

  • Jassen Esguerra (Philippines)
    This is where the course excels.. It gives you easy to remember guidelines for planning. Each phase is taken apart in a chapter – Igor takes the time explaining what to look for and why…in a way that’s NOT overwhelming for the student.

    It has a great effect on my game. I play stronger and better chess than before. You really seem to know what’s important and what’s not. You have the ability and the knowledge to teach good chess. Loving every bit of it!
    Erik Bandsma (Netherlands)
  • Pawel Panas, Poland
    I know from my practice that detecting weaknesses in my opponent’s position is relatively easy compared to finding the right way to attack them. But Grandmaster Igor Smirnov shows exactly how to proceed in concrete situations on the board. Based on the concept of different types of centers he teaches us where to attack and how (you know: you need to attack to win :)) and I find his instruction to be the best that I’ve seen. His lecture is clear, precise and very well structured.
