About This Class

Awesome Chess Openings to Surprise Your Opponent is my response to the many requests that I have had to create a follow up to my first chess openings course, Learn to Play Chess Openings Like a Master.

Chess openings are a critical part of the game of chess because without a deep understanding of the many ways to start a game, you will get blown off the board and lose before the game ever really begins.

In this chess openings course, you will learn openings that start with 1.d4, including the Queen's Gambit, Queen's Gambit Declined, Nimzowitsch Defense and many others. In addition, you will learn more ways to respond to common 1.e4 openings such as aggressive openings like the King's Gambit, Evan's Gambit, and the all important Sicilian Defense. We will also go into more detail regarding how to play the many classical Spanish Opening variations. 

In addition, you will learn more ways to respond to the French Defense as white so that you don't fall for the many tricks embedded in this strong opening for the black player.

More Chess Openings for the Modern Player will help you to become a stronger chess player, and win more games by giving you a strong understanding of the very critical area of chess strategy that is the opening phase of the game.
