In this brand new 6-hour course, IM Lilov provides you with the most essential opening resources. The course is structured in such a way that you get 3 types of repertoires for both colors: ‘tournament‘, ‘basic‘ and ‘sparring‘. The tournament repertoire maximizes your victory chances and should be used for competition.

The basic repertoire is for those who like keeping things simple. The sparring repertoire is for training purposes, to grow as a chess player. The course comes packed with the priceless opening advice from a world renowned coach with over a decade of experience. You just can’t go wrong with this!

Even if you have an absolute zero opening knowledge after studying this course you will raise your opening preparation level to a solid club level. This is by far the quickest opening-preparation shortcut for beginner/intermediate players.

The course covers:

  • How to learn an opening without need to spend weeks on opening preparation?
  • How to find and play the strongest opening moves even if you encounter unknown lines?
  • How to improve at chess by using the sparring repertoire?
  • How to setup an opening repertoire that fits your style, level, and goals?

  • Have trouble working on openings, and simply don’t know where to start
  • Spend a lot of time on openings but don’t see RESULTS

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above this course is for you! Even if you are an intermediate level player, but feel like you struggle a lot with the openings this course is the chance!
