Key features of the service

The platform “Sakaev Chess” will help you to improve your chess game.


High-quality chess exercises

I carefully select the puzzles myself. An automated program does not compile them.

The effect of communication with the grandmaster

In explaining the problem solution, I reveal the position essence and give a detailed assessment of possible further moves.

Clear training structure

Each level includes specific training exercises, divided into directions and stages.

Focus on the practice

All puzzles consist exclusively of the compositions that you can find in a live chess game.

The motivation of the chess player

Ratings, individual charts, and final certificates stimulate the players to improve their game.

All levels of training

All chess puzzles are divided based on the levels of complexity:

  • Start – for chess players of 4 and 3 categories
  • Progress – for chess players of 2 and 1 categories
  • Junior – for FIDE Masters and Masters of Sports
  • Expert – for grandmasters

You can train at several levels simultaneously if sometimes you feel like solving easier tasks (or vice versa, setting the bar higher).

Solving chess puzzles on the platform “Sakaev Chess” will allow you to develop the necessary skills and gain new knowledge thanks to the explanations of the positions. Like during a private session with a highly qualified coach, you get information about which moves to make and why.
