Wonderful, accessible lessons on how to make the most of a position. To steal from the famous saying, it teaches what to do when there isn't anything obvious to do.

This course, along with the Commented Classical Games, have skyrocketed my middle game play! Now that I think about it, in every game, mopenings are the area where I make some inaccuracy or mistake. Thank you Coach Avetik, excited for more!

Wonderful, waiting for the next sections. Most trainers do not care about their pupils; they do not pay attention to important mopening and middlegame skills.

Very instructive and easy to understand. Maybe not so easy to follow in my own games :-)

I really enjoyed this course. It was a nice reminder of the the concept of "talking to pieces". Looking forward to any new sections.
