Chessable

Hey everyone! I wanted to let you know a good way to train your openings is using the website https://www.chessable.com and building your own book with the lines the coaches teach. If you have a hard time remembering from only watching video, this is a great way to build your database and train against it. It also allows you to train on your phone or whatever if you have down time. 

Just thought I would share :)
