I’ll tell you something unbelievable and funny. Our editor Lily, being 1,200 on chess.com, raised her online rating by 100 points in 2 weeks, just by looking through the videos of this course when she was editing them. How many rating points will you raise? :)
Together with 5 coaches, we’ve worked for 6 months on this chess tactics course to prepare for you easy-to-digest material. We’ll introduce you to all tactical patterns and how to notice them in a real game.
I don’t like promises. But this time…
If you watch the videos carefully and follow the instructions, you’ll notice how your tactical vision becomes sharper after each section.
And by the end, you'll become a true Tactic Ninja, who's alert to tactics and swift to strike.
In the introduction, I’ll give you instructions on how to work with the course so that you maximize the quality of your training and raise your rating.
Then I’ll show you 20 tactical motifs, section-by-section, so that you’re fully aware of all of them. These include examples on pins, skewers, forks, windmills, decoys among others.
And in the last sections, I'll share a simple technique to notice tactics in a real game.
