Bloody Christmas 2023

Killer Chess Training is celebrating the end of 2023 with a bang! Bloody Christmas returns! This year as a 7 day training camp on attacking chess, only on KillerChessTraining.com!

One of the world’s leading chess trainers and most highly respected chess writers – Grandmaster Jacob Aagaard – will be your instructor.

The topics are:

27th Dec – The importance of Momentum

28th Dec – Include all the pieces in the attack

29th Dec – Colour & Size

30th Dec – Attack the weakest square/ attack the strongest square

31st  Dec – Evolution/Revolution

1st  Jan – The King Hunt, King in the Centre and Killzone

2nd Jan – Training your attacking skills and great attacking games

The training will take time between 16.30 and 20.00 London time each day (8:30-12:30 California, 11:30-15:30 New York, 17:30-21:30 CET). There will be two 15-minute breaks. The camp will offer you a full 21 hours of training.

GM Jacob Aagaard was a decent chess player, winning the British Championship in his only try in 2007, but it has been as a writer and trainer he has left his mark.

Jacob has worked with a lot of top 100 players with remarkable results. His students have won 3 Olympic Golds, the World Cup, the Candidates, the US Championship, Continental Championships, and a few things he has been asked not to mention. They have defeated all World Champions for the last 50 years, with the exception of Ding Liren (who is clearly hiding!).

Jacob is the only chess writer to win all the big awards – and will continue to be so, as one of them is discontinued! His latest award was the ECF 2023 Book of the Year for A Matter of Endgame Technique. His recent publications are Endgame Labyrinths, the ultimate book on endgame studies for practical players, and Conceptual Rook Endgames, a book on the mechanics of rook endgames and how to use them to make good practical decisions in non-theoretical endgames.

Killerchesstraining.com offers daily lessons and about 9-11 lessons each week, on openings, middlegame and endgames, as well as analysis of games and two weekly homework assignments.
