IM Mat Kolosowski presents his first-ever original chess course for 365 Chess, in which he explores the somewhat complex yet extremely rewarding topic of advanced tactical chess patterns.

In this 4-hour course, you will learn a handful of insightful chess tactical concepts that you might have inadvertently overlooked for years, delaying your development as a chess player.

Worry not, as this isn’t just merely a theoretical approach to these tactical patterns, but a hands-on course in which Mat shares dozens of common examples for each concept he introduces.

And then, with our Tactics Trainer (exclusive only to course owners), you will gain access to about 1200 trainable chess tactics for you to solve and solidify the knowledge imparted by IM Kolosowski.

Here’s What You’ll Learn

  • In Combining Chess Motifs, IM Kolosowski talks about the power of using more than one tactical resource within the same tactical sequence. For instance, combining a skewer with a deflection or a fork with an x-ray tactic are just a few of the possibilities explored.
  • In Unexpected Opening of a File, the main focus is on diagonals. Similar in a way to the section Long Queen Moves, in Unexpected Diagonals IM Kolosowski introduces a topic that not only involves queen moves, but also opens the possibility for other pieces to enter the fight, many times in a devastating manner.

  • In Long Queen Moves, you will learn how to dramatically improve your queen’s position, often moving it to the other side of the board, and transforming it’s role to surprise your opponent.
  • In Hidden Resource, you will learn how to easily find simple yet powerful moves in positions that seem to be equalized.
  • In Checkmate Patterns with Minor Pieces, IM Kolosowski explains how to deal with positions that generally don’t include the queen but the rest of the pieces, which can sometimes be challenging but happens more than one might imagine.
