Description

Hi, my name is Shervin House. I am a top Udemy instructor, and in this course I will be teaching you how to play chess like a pro!

  • Dan: "Great course, the instructions are clear and engaging. The structure of the course has a good flow to it and are effective. Definitely recommend it..."

I've been in love with the game of chess since I was introduced to the game by my grandfather at the age of 6. After decades of taking lessons and learning from strategy books, I have put together a comprehensive course that covers all the fundamentals of chess that every chess player must know. I also teamed up with two different International Masters who looked over the course and gave me feedback on how to make it even better and more comprehensive, just to make sure there aren't any fundamentals missing from the course.

  • Michael: "The instructor is very helpful by his explanation of do’s and don’t’s when moving your minor pieces. I’m very satisfied with this course."

This course is for beginner chess players. This includes those who have never played chess before in their lives, as well as those who have some experience playing the game, but are looking to take their game to the next level. For example, if you are a 1200-1300 rated player or lower, or if you don't have a chess rating at all, then this course is perfect for you.

By the end of this course, you will know all the fundamentals of chess in all 3 stages of the opening, the middle-game and the endgame. The aim of this course is to teach you how to play chess properly in order to boost your ability, as well as your ratings from a beginner to.a great player; we basically take you by the hand and walk you through all of these fundamentals step by step.

  • Pavlo: "Really fluid and easy to understand. I'm not a novice and I've never heard about en passant!"

What can you expect from this course?

  • The most in-depth chess strategy course online

  • A complete guide for those who are beginners to chess, as well as those with some experience

  • All the basics covered, material such as how pieces move, chess opening principles, common tactics, etc.

  • All questions answered within 24 hours

  • All the fundamentals covered, all throughout the opening, middle-game and endgame

  • Common chess openings covered in-depth in order to provide you good foundations in the opening stage

  • Various middlegame tactics covered in-depth in order to improve your middlegame tactics and enable you to control the game in the middle

  • Common chess endgames covered in-depth in order to provide you good foundations for finishing off from a winning position

  • Practice material with puzzles, including "solve along with me" videos where you solve chess puzzles with me

  • And of course... 30 day money back guarantee! (No questions asked)


          All the concepts covered in this course are must know concepts for those who wish to become great chess players. The material we cover are the building blocks upon which you will build your chess skills in order to become a master of the game.

The explanations are very clear so far. However, it seems that the instructor repeats things more than three times at some cases. It would be helpful to be more concise.

I'm a complete beginner and was looking for a course that really explains everything from the beginning so that I can actually learn how to play the game. This course was exactly that, I'm really happy that I found it.

I really liked that the course explained everything from scratch, and that the instructor took his time carefully explaining everything instead of just rushing through the lessons. Thanks!
