Active opening repertoire
The new course is coming soon

Based on our users’ request, we started developing a new opening course for beginners, and blitz players, called “Active opening repertoire”. We still recommend that first, you learn the logic behind chess and the basic moves from our Beginner course, before mastering any openings. Moreover, a solid middlegame and endgame knowledge are also essential, which you can learn from the Intermediate and Advanced courses.

However, if you want to become a successful player in today’s computerized chess world, you also need to put emphasis on your opening strategy. That is why we are launching the “Active opening repertoire” in September 2020.

Please, check our sample lesson below, and tell us what you think about our method.
