    Understanding Opening Strategy with GM Sipke Ernst

    People study openings BUT…

    Do they study opening strategy? Nope!

    As a result, you find a bevy of club players who spout off clever lines from the first move and then are caught napping when the position takes them to an unknown territory.

    That’s because you memorized lines instead of learning the underlying ideas.

    A BIG mistake!

    If you want to go from 1200-1400 in rating to above 2000, you have to do what GM Sipke Ernst tells you to do… in his exclusive new training, Understanding Opening Strategy:

    A 9.5-hour of video lessons, over 37 chapters, covering the most thematic opening principles from central breaks to flank attacks to outputs.

    When your future opponent is cramming lines after lines, of Sicilian, Dutch, Italian, and whatnot, you are arming yourself with solid chess opening fundamentals.

    Helping you master your repertoire better and pick up new openings faster.

    What you’ll learn in this course:

    • Release the tension? Maybe not. If Black plays …dxe5 and then, Knight takes, Knight takes, Black gets the advantage. Instead White wanted to play a simple move that stifled Black’s position even further. What? White played h3 stopping Black’s Ng4 idea. A harmless yet debilitating move. 

    Understanding Opening Strategy

    • Bishop for a knight. White bishop captured the Black knight on f6. That’s against the rules, right? Not quite. White is solidifying the d5 square for its knight instead. Just one more move in between. Exchange off the light-square bishops and then grab that outpost for the knight! Let Sipke show you how to steal such outputs right under your opponent’s nose.

    Understanding Opening Strategy

    • Bamboozle opponents into opening troubles. Black has put his knight on c6. Alas! Now it has to waste a move to get that c-pawn forward. Not a big deal? Trust me, when you are playing against a 2000+ rated player, that slight mistake is going to cost you the game. What if you are on the winning side though? Let Sipke show you how White played this position to a win.

    Understanding Opening Strategy

    Don’t let openings confuse you as a chess player. Grandmasters study theory before they full-on commit to studying openings. That’s the “secret” hack nobody tells you about. The good news is, you have a Grandmaster handholding you through the whole process, from A to Z.
