Hi, my name is Manuel Ocantos. I am a chess player, top ten of the country that I represent (Luxembourg).
Are you having problems with the first moves of your games? This course will allow you to dominate chess openings.
In this course I will teach you everything you need to know to play the first 10-15 moves of a game
against any move that your opponent plays. You will learn how to apply principles so you'll understand
what you will be doing in your games. You won't have to memorize hundreds of lines to play the opening well.
This course is for beginners. You do not need any previous knowledge about chess besides knowing the rules.
For your convenience the squares of the board are marked to help you if you're not familiar with chess notation.
You will learn the fundamental chess principles but more importantly when those principles can be broken.
Throughout the course you will be testing your skills. There are activity files to download so that you can
take your time and analyze the positions that I give to solve.
If you are tired of getting bad positions in your games or intimidated by your opponent's confident play,
together we'll learn how to improve at this fascinating game.
