You can find a lot of different chess rules and instructions on how to play chess, however there only 6 main things which you should do while you play a game of chess. In this comprehensive chess course GM Igor Smirnov explains these rules one by one.

Similarly he explains in details one more important thinking rule which will help your game to grow up on the next level! Thus, on Remote Chess Academy we created this course, called 7 keys to victory.

7 keys to victory can help you improve your game and your thinking process during the game. All the ideas are explained with simple examples to understand then if you are totally beginner.

However, the videos contain games from World Champions, like Kasparov, Kramnik, Tal and other top-rated players, so this course is also suitable for more advanced players.
