    Mastering Positional Sacrifice with IM Boroljub Zlatanovic

     

    There are two types of chess sacrifices.

    The first one involves a forced sequence of moves with instant benefits. Winning material, forking the Queen and a Rook, or delivering a checkmate are a few examples.

    The second type is rarely seen at club-level games. It is far more common at Grandmasters’ chess.

    Positional sacrifice involves deep positional understanding for obtaining a long-term advantage.

    IM Boroljub Zlatanovic is a world-class expert on positional sacrifices and a renowned chess coach. He believes that without a proper understanding of the positional sacrifice it is next to impossible to reach the 2200 level.

    That’s why he recorded this 10-hour training revealing how to make positional sacrifice a powerful weapon at the club level.

    You don’t need Karpov-like positional understanding, the ingenuity of Tigran Petrosian or photographic memory, and the IQ of Magnus Carlsen.

    With this course you’ll be able to add positional sacrifice into your chess toolbox, improving your all-around game in the process and winning a lot of games in style!

    Here’s what you are going to learn:

    • Devastating Exchange Sacrifice – IM Zlatanovic shows how Karpov sacrificed an exchange to set up a powerful blockade, completely disabling his opponent’s rooks and disorganizing pieces.
    • Queen Sac Method – Kasparov sacrificed his Queen for 2 minor pieces + 2 pawns against Kramnik and completely dominated the game with 4 minor pieces! IM Zlatanovic explains when and how you can copy & paste Kasparov’s idea.
    • Unleashing the Bishop Pair – Ulf Andersson gives a clear and precise masterclass for activating the monster bishop pair, by sacrificing an exchange (this is a must-know theme for any ambitious player).
    • Pawn Dynamite – Capablanca shows how a “little” pawn sacrifice would make his opponent’s position collapse… like a set of dominos!
    • Dark-Squares Magic – 2500-rated GM from India shocked the World by sacrificing the Queen on move 9 (!!) against the World’s #2 Alireza Firouzja and beat him in style by exploiting the dark square weaknesses!

    And these are just 5 practical examples of how positional sacrifice will help you win more games!

    IM Zlatanovic gives you a complete breakdown of positional play with positional sacrifice and coaches you on getting the advantage in imbalanced positions.

    Your rivals will have no idea what’s happening on the board until it’s simply too late. This will result in many unexpected victories against even much stronger opponents.
