    Mastering Positional Play with GM Sipke Ernst

    Imagine you are playing an important game. You made it through the opening.

    The position is fairly equal.

    You are staring at the board not knowing what to do next. The position isn’t screaming for an attack. There isn’t a straightforward plan to jump out.

    Now what?

    Dutch GM Sipke Ernst [2606 FIDE] knows the answer.

    You apply the 5-step positional play algorithm, ‘read’ the position, and proceed with a sound plan.

    Everything becomes instantly clear and you won’t be asking ‘what now’.

    Want to learn how?

    GM Ernst has put together his 7-hour Mastering Positional Play – the complete training on positional chess for all under 2200 players.

    What you’ll learn in this course:

    • Pawn Play Mastery – Learn to read the pawn structures and your game plan and execution will follow. GM Ernst will train you on understanding the fundamental structures when it comes to positional play.
    • Maneuvering Pieces Blueprint – Position your pieces on right squares and half of the battle is already won. GM Ernst will share his own system for finding the best squares for each piece and will train you on how to occupy those.
    • Prophylactic Thinking – This is a bit like predicting the future. If you know what your opponent will do, you will have a greater chance of stopping it dead in its tracks. It is easier than it sounds if you know what you are doing. And GM Ernst will make sure you do!
    • Space Edge – It’s much easier to play when you’ve got space. If all your pieces are jammed, it is no fun. In this section, GM Ernst will give you a complete masterclass for controlling and exploiting extra squares on the board.
    • Transformation of Advantages – Oftentimes to win the game you’ve got to convert one advantage into another (material to initiative or space to time). Master this skill and you’ll surely add at least 200 points to your performance.

    If you are looking for a tested and proven way to improve, this is it.

    It is time to take your positional chess to a whole new level!
