As is known, the chess game also my chess lessons are divided into the following phases: the chess opening, the middle-game and the endgame. It is clear that if you want to be a successful chess player, you have to play well through every phase of the game. Analyzing chess can be divided into analyzing: Strategy and Tactics. The strategy involves improving the position of figures in relation to the opponent and the maximum use of resources. Tactics include the use of combining motifs in position and strategic goals in different ways, and often the use of extraordinary measures.The strategy has a dominant place in the opening and endgame, while the importance of tactics increases in the middle-game, when most of the pieces are engaged. All this may seem hard to comprehend, but don’t worry. With my help, that won’t be a problem. I have devised elaborate plans and programs for studying and analyzing openings, middle-game and endgame, no matter whether the stress is on the strategy or tactics, whether you have wide chess knowledge or no knowledge at all, or how much you are willing to dedicate yourself to chess. Of course, my recommendation is to start from the beginning, that is, from the endgame, to continue with the middle and then focus on the opening of the game.

I can help you to:

    1. Improve understanding and playing endgame
    2. Fully master the strategy so that it becomes your most powerful tool
    3. Sharpen your sense when it comes to identifying and combining motifs
    4. Expand and deepen your opening repertoire in the best possible way according to your character, temperament and your chess playig styles




If you’re a beginner, my system for studying Endgame is very productive and it includes:

  1. (Chess)Mating
  2. Elementary Endgames (pawn, knight, bishop, rook and queen endings)
  3. Basic Endgames (pawn, knight, bishop, rook and queen endings)
  4. Typical Endgames with equal material (pawn, knight, bishop, rook and queen endings)
  5. Typical endgames with an extra pawn (pawn, knight, bishop, rook and queen endings)
  6. Complex endgames with more pieces and material balance
  7. Complex endgames with more pieces and with an extra pawn
  8. Complex endgames with material imbalance

Depending on whether you are an amateur or a professional player, we can reduce the studying of endings in general to the analysis of the aspects you’re not satisfied with. By analyzing you’re game I will identify your flaws and make an adequate program for improving your understanding of chess endings.





  1. Centre
  2. King position
  3. The position of one or more pieces
  4. The Bishop against the Knight
  5. The Bishop Pair
  6. Weak Square or Square Complex
  7. (Semi)open file
  8. Space
  9. Activity
  10. Initiative
  11. The irrational position
  12. Pawn Structure
    • Passed Pawn
    • Doubled Pawn
    • Isolated pawn
    • Isolated hanging pair
    • Backward Pawn
    • A Pawn Chain
    • Majority




  1. The attack on the King in the centre
  2. Attack on the King in case of homogeneous castlings
  3. Attack on the King in case of heterogeneous castlings
  4. Fight for initiative for taking extreme measures

If you have certain experience, it won’t be necessary to cover the entire course. By analysing your game and playing against you, I will see what should we do to improve your game and we’ll focus on that.


It is not difficult to master the opening theory because we are in the PC era when everything is close at hand. Nontheless, the help of an experienced trainer can be priceless because it is utterly important to build your own repertoire that will be in accordance with your character and your chess playing style. The greatest contemporary chess players, regardless of the character or the preferred style, possess in their arsenal variants which are often diametrically different, and they base the choice of a variant upon the opponent, statistics, current state of mind, standings, the results of the current match (if it is a team tournament). All this brings us to the conclusion that your repertoire is to be wide and deep enough for you to manage to evade all the unpleasant surprises in the early stages of the game. I can offer you help when it comes to all the possible openings, and I consider myself to have developed a considerable opus and to have become an expert in the following:

  1. French Defense
  2. King’s Indian Defense
  3. English Opening
  4. Closed Sicilian Defense
  5. Pirc Defense/Ufimcev

Also, I can introduce you with my own patents that are already in use or waiting to be used.

I am happy to offer you the following:

  1. You may send me your matches, for which I shall give you a thoroughly analyzed feedback
  2. I may create appropriate tests which would enable you to realize what your weak points might be
  3. I may play as your opponent, with or without an analysis of the game
  4. I may present you illustrative examples for the particular areas you wish to master
  5. I may act as your adviser while you are in a tournament

…And much more. I’m offering an audio and chat (MSN, Skype, and on playchess.com) lessons. You can get chess lessons in English and Russian. Price of the lessons varies and depends on the number of lessons, type of lessons that interests you and on the current skill level. Feel free to ask whatever you want. I’m here for you! Of course, I am open to your questions and your suggestions. Contact me and see for yourself!
Sincerely yours,
Boroljub Zlatanovic
