Crash Course in Advanced Positional Play

Outplay your opponents the way Grandmasters do


With GM Lars Bo Hansen


Ten 60-min lessons. Thursdays 7pm-8 pm EST. Starts March 1st


It is still possible to join and receive the full-course discount!


You will receive Learning points + Game files + Recorded sessions for the two missed sessions.


Clubs are welcome to register and share the sessions - and the cost - among their members.


They say, Play and Learn. Honestly, we all know that tournament expenses can easily run between a few hundred to a few thousand dollars - each.


Learning wise, you get a whole more value for your money if you skip one tournament and instead learn how to eliminate your mistakes, how to think strategy, and how to approach chess to reach a level that opens your eyes.


When it comes to positional chess, GM Lars Bo Hansen is the best coach you can get.


The course is best suited for the 1800-2200 levels tournament players. Lower level players are advised to spend more time on the provided learning points and games.

Teaching system that goes beyond chess


I work with students ages 8+ who already have the basics in chess and are highly committed to advance in the game.


Using chess as a platform, I help my students see behind the obvious, to synthesize knowledge out of their observations - and apply that knowledge for solving problems of even totally different character.


This means that my lessons go far beyond chess theory and skills: I teach strategic thinking, philosophies and algorithms for problem solving. The level of abstraction sometimes is as high as you can expect on a graduate level.


Homework? Of course! At least 6-10 hours weekly.


At the moment I only teach online. Plus, it goes without saying, both Lars and I teach in person at our Master Classes.


All coaching is based on the individual strengths and weaknesses of the student, no standard solutions.


Fee: $75/h.

Please note: My system is best suitable for students with high commitment. If you prefer to learn chess as a short term hobby, I would recommend to contact other coaches.
