Description

Master Method Series #27


For those who desire success in chess, mastery of the fundamentals is essential.

But our understanding of this ancient game has changed a lot in the computer era, and the question of what those fundamentals are and how they should be approached has had to be re-examined.

Now, French GM Axel Delorme has put together the essential guide to playing great chess in Modern Chess Fundamentals. In this 15 hour course Axel sets out the golden rules for getting active positions without weaknesses, drawing on some of the most instructive games ever played.

Everything in Modern Chess Fundamentals is geared towards improving the skills that lead to practical success, such as how to handle the bishop pair (often a winning advantage in the hands of masters but typically wasted by club players); how to shape the pawn structure for a long-term advantage and the essential endgame knowledge that will serve you well for the rest of your life.

Modern Chess Fundamentals is a comprehensive course for players aiming to reach 1800 level.
