* Teacher support - when you subscribe to the Grandmaster Package, you have our free teacher support! If you do not understand something, just send us an email and we will help you personally. It is like having a chess teacher. Furthermore, if you have general questions on how to train, what openings to choose, and so on, we will be glad to help you.
Very rigorous and organized studying is a must for serious progress. A piecemeal approach, reading a book, then watching a video, then watching another with no connection to the first and not following a study plan is the No. 1 mistake of learning. With our course, you will follow a professional, organized study plan for one year.
