The July to September clinics covered essential subjects such as Pawn Structure & Planning (July), Defence (August) and suppressing counterplay (September). October's Clinic will see a return to endgames, an essential but oft neglected area for improvement.
The November is now online which full members can find here when logged on. The subject this time was best games, and there will be a follow up clinic next month with the rest of the games sent in. In January we will be returning to the delicate matter of pawn play, which will probably prove far less popular!
I've just posted the October clinic which full members can find here when logged on. It was a bit late as I've been going through a nightmare house move as well as having had a ridiculous amount of media attention due to my change of federation to Wales. Thankfully this now seems to be dying down so I can resume the quiet life of teaching chess and ferrying my son around to tournaments.
Analysis Training is now online at Tiger Chess which Full Members can access here. It comprises weekly positions designed to help students bring together strategy and tactics in a disciplined and organised thinking routine. Each position has video commentary showing how I would think about the position and offering my insights.
The Tiger Chess Endgame Course is now online and, like the strategy course, comprises 4 units of 40 lessons each. Besides video explanations there are exercises with many of the lessons including positions to practice against a computer.
Full members get these included in their subscription with a lesson appearing every week. The first unit covers essential endgames and can be accessed here
Today I launched the Tiger Chess Strategy Course consisting of 160 lessons to be released a week at a time. It's included in Full Membership and provides an opportunity for club players to complete their chess education.
A couple of weeks ago I released the first Tiger Chess Course entitled Building an Opening Repertoire. This is something I've been working on for some time, explaining the right approach and trying to find the optimal choices.
Eventually I went for the simplest approach I could find, showing how Black can use the French (including the Rubinstein Variation) against 1.e4 and the Queen's Gambit Declined against 1.d4 and the Flank Openings. With White you essentially play a Queen's Gambit Declined formation but with White. And having laid a solid basis you can expand on these systems as and when you feel the need. Here's my Youtube presentation on this course:
The course is priced at just £19.95 for Full Tiger Chess Members, plus you need to keep this membership active to continue to view the materials and get any updates. But I think it will help free many players from the openings merry-go-round by which they end up buying one chess product after another but never seem to find something that works.
I've finally opened the doors to the general public as there's a fair amount of content up now (numerous articles, book and link recommendations plus around 23 hours worth of video). This will be steadily increasing over time.
There are two levels of membership, Full Members paying £4.95 per month whilst Annual Tiger Cubs Membership costs £12.95 per annum. The former is directed primarily at serious adult players who want to improve, the cubs membership is designed to help guide parents and young players through the very large amount of conflicting information that's out there.
Please contact me if you have any questions about membership which I'll answer through the FAQ pages on membership and payment. Here meanwhile is a video explaining more about how you should join:
