Chess Unleashed by GM Iotov

chessdom_adChess Unleashed is the new website from Grandmaster Valentin Iotov, dedicated to sharing his experience with different levels of amateur and semi-professional players.

Chess Unleashed is all about “unleashing” the chess power hidden deep in each of us. To be an expert at chess requires the ability to fit all of the components of the game together into one cohesive, winning approach. True greatness requires philosophy, psychology, and knowledge of the game. All three elements are necessary to perceive the game as a whole and develop the skill to master any opponent. The teaching style of GM Iotov is unique in that he shows players how to combine these elements as they learn, instead of developing one at a time. Many players who learn them separately are never able to successfully meld them later. Consequently, they never develop their full aptitude and lose to less knowledgeable, less experienced competitors.

In essence, Chess Unleashed will teach you to be an advanced chess player by employing an approach that few novice players are permitted to access, an approach developed by a grandmaster. As GM Iotov shares himself, “If you truly desire an advantage over your opponents, enter the mind of a grandmaster!”
