Dear members,

First things first, a reminder that today is the Playing Position with GM Renier Castellanos on Lichess at 17:00 UK time.
Please watch this video beforehand and make sure you Join the team on lichess.
We start at 17:00 and once we start, you cannot join! So, make sure to tune in early!

We have more videos explain a few things about the academy in the My Academy section, so make sure to watch them if you are a new member!
If you are wondering if Killer Chess Training is the right place for you, you can also find some free material in the My Academy section and contact us to give you a link for a class to see how it is from the inside!

A PDF containing key points and games shown in GM Julen Arizmendi’s last camp on 4 Key Improvement Chess Strategies! has been posted to the camp’s pageand is available to those who attended the camp. The file will also be available on Chess Tempo for the camp participants towards the end of the week.

Speaking of Chess Tempo, we want to remind you to send us an email and tell us your username after you add the KCT Academy as a coach! Without this, we cannot accept your request! We still have many requests on Chess Tempo from usernames we don’t know. If this is you, please let us know!
