1900+ Prodigy Training Course by Chess University: Jan-March 2017

Jan 6, 2017, 1:09 AM |

Chess University is launching a 1900+ Elo Prodigy Training Course on January 21st, 2017 as the next step for 1750+ Elo section Prodigy Program graduates! This training course focuses on advanced calculation, thought-process, logical decision-making, and improving general chess skills. Content is not the focus. We want our 1750+ section graduates as well as other students near 1900 Elo to practice applying their knowledge in an informed manner and work to improve their core chess skills.


Key Details:

  • The 1900+ Prodigy Training Course begins on January 21st, 2017 at 9:00 AM PST. (Pacific Time) and will remain in session till March 26th, 2017.
  • The course is managed by Kairav Joshi and lessons will be taught by Prodigy Program faculty including: GM Alex Yermolinsky, IM Kostya Kavutskiy, IM Nazi Paikidze, FM Arne Jochens, and others.
  • This training course comes with over 12 hours of live lessons spread out over January, February, and March. The lessons get recorded so students can review. The live lessons will mostly focus on training, analysis, guidance, and homework review. Pre-lesson homework will be assigned for certain live lessons.
  • Each student will also get a 30 minute one-on-one private lesson with one of our instructors!
  • Students will receive one concise study guide for each of the three months and occasional bonus video lessons.
  • We will set up online tournaments for students.
  • The 1900+ Prodigy Training Course is meant for graduates of the 1750+ Prodigy Program section and other chess players who are at least 1900 level in over-the-board play. This course is not part of the regular Prodigy Program offering but serves to prepare students for our highly advanced 2000+ Prodigy Program section which begins in April 2017.
  • Tuition for this training course is $229.
