ACO Chess School: Scientific 5-Step Method for YOUR Individual Level


Many chess players have 10, 20, 25, and some even have more than 30 chess books and DVDs about chess openings on their bookshelf. Although they spend a lot of time and money, they can not achieve the progress that they expect.

Why is that?
Publications that deal with a specific topic in detail, are usually only relevant for the Grandmaster level or theoretical discussions. Books can, nowadays, be created only with the help of powerful computers. No writer can afford to be later criticised by one of his readers or Grandmaster colleagues. Moreover, an author cannot write a book for an individual. He needs to reach out to a cross-section of readers. Everyone is also at a different level of learning.


And, let's be honest, what amateur player has the the time, all of these variants to remember?
Amateurs do not need Grandmaster theory, but have to start learning from their level of chess strength. 

The ACO Online Chess School has developed a scientific 5-step approach that makes learning of openings easy for amateur players. Through specially designed databases and analyzes, they show you the opening lines that are found at your level of play... and all in a way so that YOU can remember and improve.


The ACO Online School Concept:
Step 1) You buy the ACO questionnaire
Step 2) evaluation of the questionnaire by the team (cost of questionnaire and evaluation 20 €)
Step 3) Written evaluation and individual suggestions for further training
Step 4) selection of proposals and creating the database by the expert team
Step 5) guidance
The ACO Online chess school team creates your opening lines individually based on your strengths, weaknesses, skill level and preferences. They calculate them using the questionnaire, which consists of over 100 questions and chess tests on all areas of chess.
You need only a single variant or a single system to complete your existing repertoire?  For example, a variant of white against the Sicilian or a variant for Black against the Trompowsky variant?
Or do you want your entire repertoire of example 1.e4 on 1.d4 move and look great masterly advice and concrete suggestions variant? Or you want to check your repertoire or individual variants or leave brush? Or have a completely different challenge with your openings?
