Forget the boring idea of building a ‘space advantage’ on the queenside (while Black mates you!). Instead, use the deadly opposite castling attack for easy wins!

🤔 Why this course? 👇

  1. Shout out next video Jude Soreta from Philippines tnx

  2. Nice vid ! What do you think about the Rook Sacrifice on H5 ligne ? It's a very cool and agressive variation ..

  3. I don't get the idea of writing your words on top of the pieces when the viewers already understand what you're saying🤔!

  4. An excellent analysis by that IM Milovan, thanks for your explanation and time, very helpful.

  5. Cool but I'll rather to use queens gambit set up and continue with flank attack,so I can still control the center while attacking my opponent on the king side

  6. This is not London Vs kings Indian. This is grunfeld

  7. You did a terrific job explaining why this move and not that one. It was very helpful and much appreciated…thank you!

  8. 8.dxc is
    better for white

    BECAUSE 8.e3…c4! really hurts. yes in some London systems a c4 push is fine for white, but NOT in this line

  9. you are a talented teacher Milovan….i purchased the course without hesitation,

  10. Why when after knight g4 with threat knight f2 with a fork the move queen h4 is bad? When black queen turn f4 with check, then a white king goes away and then a black knight can not turn f2 becouse then white queen can beat black queen.

  11. KID doesn't push d5, instead d6 but your title says KID.
