    ChessMood - 100 Must-Know Classical Games

    GM Avetik Grigoryan

    It often happens that despite working hard on chess openings and following super tournaments, people do not manage to progress. Even though such players accumulate a lot of information, they lack a solid foundation.

    Every good coach or strong chess player would tell you that studying classical games is one of the best ways of improving our general chess understanding. All the modern theoretical and positional concepts are based on patterns that have been discovered a long time ago. Therefore, a good knowledge of the classical games will contribute to your improvement in all the stages of the game.

    In this course with a running time of more than 25 hours, GM Avetik Grigoryan provides in-depth insights into 100 of the most important classical games.

    How to Work with this Course

    The author provides three important advice on how to work effectively with this course:

    1) Pause the video and spend time on the critical positions (these moments will be indicated by Avetik during the course)

    2) Watch just one video per day in order to get a deeper subconscious understanding of the games

    3) Do not try to memorize all the games. Just try to retain critical positions and ideas.
