Efficiently Learn Openings Designed for Club Level Players with Busy Lives

Join a Community of Chess Improvers

ChessGoals has a Discord server that you can join for $5/month to receive advice from National Master Matt Jensen and other adults focused on chess improvement techniques.

There are dozens of books, thousands of puzzles and lessons, and no real clear way to know which of these will help to improve your game. This study plan eliminates that uncertainty. You are provided with day by day instructions on what to do, and for how long. There is also a community of support available to help you on your journey.

This was a great plan for someone who wanted some day plans for what to do. I needed a week 1 / day 1 to week 12 / day 7 and this perfectly delivered. The beginner plan suggests picking up a subscription while going through the course, and I would highly recommend this as well. Will be picking up the next level soon.

The best part about the plan is, in my opinion, the structure to my daily chess activites this plan provided, and it really is paying off.
The community is amazing, and Matt’s advice and support is invaluable. I’m really excited about continuing to get better to begin the intermediate plan.
