Tiger Hillarp Persson has many victories to his name and has been consistently rated over 2600 ELO, but he has the gift of explaining complex themes in a simple way. In his first chess instructional programme Tiger has decided to dispense with sitting behind a computer and going through variations.
Instead, he has invited you to sit down with him at the chessboard and explore the themes and ideas behind the initiative, why it is important, what to do with it, and how not to get carried away!
During the six hours of tuition, Tiger’s patient explanations and elegant style make this a must buy programme for all levels of chess ability who want to understand the Grandmaster Secret of the chess initiative!
