A step-by-step guide to help you improve with confidence your positional Chess
You play chess for some time and know by hard all the tactical motives and how to attack but still, you are not 100% happy with your game. You might wonder why you are not able to perform similar tactics and attacks against any opponent or any position. The answer to your question is simple. First, you need to improve the position of your pieces and only then perform tactics or attacks.
The great player Paul Morphy stated it very accurately: “Help your pieces so they can help you.”
The next logical conclusion is how can you improve the position of your pieces successfully. To reply to this question we need to know what is a positional move. Positional chess is characterized by the moves that make your position more active. You need to place your pieces in the best possible positions (Positional Chess) and then the time for tactics or attack will come!
Activity will give you the right to create tactics and attacks.
Strong players can "read" any position and find the best moves for their pieces instantly. Then the tactics or the final winning attack will come very naturally. In general, there are 3 different categories of how to improve your position:
Improve the position of your King
Improve the position of your pawn structure
Place or regroup your pieces in better places.

Why This Course Created?
I decided to create this course to help you grow your chess understanding. It took me more than 10 years to collect all of these useful pieces of information and you can learn them through a single chess course.
In the first chapters, you'll be able to learn how to identify the best placement for each chess piece separately and how to archive it in your practical games. There are many chess rules, principles, and ideas but I simplify the processes for you. You can follow a simple but effective chess thinking system that will help you to find the best moves all the time. Please also notice that the thinking system by itself is good but you need a lot of examples! You are welcome to check the curriculum below and you can discover easily that I selected highly illustrative examples for each separate chess lesson. Therefore, you'll be able to understand clearly the theoretical lesson and be able to apply the knowledge directly to your games right after studying this chess course.
How This Course Will Help Me?
I'm very happy to mention here that you'll learn how to put your pieces in the best positions and at the same time you'll learn how to avoid positional errors. These are most frequently seen compared to tactical errors.
People usually CANNOT recognize the positional errors. I love it when my opponents wonder “When I committed a mistake?” Often, even computer analysis cannot help you with positional errors. Maybe the computer slightly increases the evaluation advantage for your opponent's position, but it will NOT HIGHLIGHT that this particular move could give you the high possibility to lose the game after 10 – 20 moves...
Inside the course, you can study a separate chapter for them. First of all, you need to learn what they are, and then how to avoid them in your games. On the other hand, you'll be able to recognize instantly your opponent's bad moves and you'll be able to punish them.
