Discover How To Win With 1.e4 Using The Opening Weapons Of The World’s Best Online Blitz Player

Simple Yet Aggressive Opening Setups Full Of Tricks That Make Your Opponents Sweat

For the last 16 years, GM Hikaru Nakamura has dominated the online blitz chess scene. From dominating the Internet Chess Club with a record blitz rating of 3750, he’s dominated Chess.com since 2014, reaching server-wide peak ratings of 3332 blitz and 3570 bullet.

Now, top trainer and opening theoretician GM Max Illingworth is bringing you the opening repertoire of the world’s best online blitz player right in the comfort of your home.

Master The Tricks And Plans Nakamura Uses To Crush Top Grandmasters In Blitz

By following Nakamura’s opening shortcuts, starting with playing 1.e4 followed by 2.Nc3 no matter what Black does, we force our opponents out of their comfort zone, and into our territory, where we have Hikaru’s 6698+ games of experience with 1.e4 as White to guide us.

Unlike other repertoires, our plans are also easy to understand and implement, as we typically play an early f2-f4, giving us plenty of space to quickly start a powerful attack on Black’s king. If they try to stop us, we prepare the f4 break with greater effect, either opening the f-file for our rook to flood into the attack, or setting up a powerful kingside pawn storm with f5 and g4-g5.

I’m testing Hikaru’s repertoire in hundreds of my own White games on Chess.com, and nearly all my opponents rated below 2200 ended up in a bad position right out of the opening! In fact, even titled players (Grandmasters, International Masters, FIDE Masters and Candidate Masters) often failed to get out of the opening alive against Nakamura’s secret weapons!

Here’s a taste of what you’ll learn:
