Beginning in January 2019, the National PUBG League (NPL) will be the largest official PUBG tournament in the U.S. to date with a prize pool of $1 million.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is an online multiplayer battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of South Korean video game company Bluehole. The game is based on previous mods that were created by Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene for other games using the film Battle Royale for inspiration, and expanded into a standalone game under Greene's creative direction. In the game, up to one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves. The available safe area of the game's map decreases in size over time, directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters. The last player or team standing wins the round.

The game is one of the best-selling of all time, with over fifty million sold across all platforms by June 2018. In addition, the Windows version holds a peak concurrent player count of over three million on Steam, which is an all-time high on the platform.

Battlegrounds received positive reviews from critics during both its early access period and on official release, who found that while the game still was not fully finished and had some technical flaws, Battlegrounds presented new types of gameplay that could be easily approached by players of any skill level and was highly replayable. The game received several Game of the Year nominations among other accolades, and is considered by Greene to be the defining game of the battle royale genre. PUBG Corporation has run several small tournaments and introduced in-game tools to help with broadcasting the game to spectators, as it  becomes a popular eSport.

Are you a beginning or hobby chess player who wants to start winning a LOT more games?

"Chess is 99 percent tactics." - Richard Teichmann

This course breaks down the most frequent (yet powerful!) chess tactics so that anybody can pick them up and employ them against their opponents.

You will be learning these powerful chess tactics from a professional chess coach of more than 10 years who truly takes his students results seriously.

Each lecture has a companion PDF in the supplementary materials section which is highly recommended to be studied with the lecture over-the-board.

Students who use both the video lecture and its PDF companion will reap the best rewards in terms of their playing level and tactical ability but simply watching the lectures alone will still substantially boost any chess player's tactical level and practical results.

If you need an extra nudge into the course, just listen to some of my wonderful student's kind words! :)

“By the way you give great lessons, my elo raised by 50 in 2 days of following your videos and posts, great stuff, keep it up!” - N. Tomasevic (Serbia)

“You are a wonderful chess coach. Your passion for the game and dedication to your students’ improvement are only some of the factors as to why more people need such great guidance.
I only had like 10 lessons with you and in less than 3 weeks my rating jumped 200-300 points on chess dot com.” -
E. Franca (Australia)

“To have a one on one conversation with Brendan is like having my mind open tenfold.
His patience, knowledge, enthusiasm, perseverance, speed of thought have me in awe.
You’re not playing chess if you haven’t talked to Brendan. I have regained speed of thought through his coaching, and, yes, points too.” -
T. Kaufman (France)

What will you learn from the course?
In this course, GM Igor Smirnov answers some of the questions received from RCA students

Student 1 : Many players such as myself are club level players who would simply like to reach expert strength rating (2200) or even just rating (2000). Most club level players struggle with creating a schedule for an effective study plan, what to study & how to study.

Student 2 : Number of hours per day spent on each aspect of chess? How and what to train with only 1-2 free hours per week?

Student 3 : How to make steady progress? How to get the best out of chess books, chess software, playing online and puzzles? A course about how someone should analyze his game is very useful.

Student 4 : How to work as best when alone? Many chess players cannot offer themselves the aid of a coach for geographical or financial reasons.

Are you a regular CS:GO player but aren’t sure what you can do to reach a higher level of play? Are you curious about how CS:GO pros think when they play and practice? If so, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - Play Like a Pro is your opportunity to learn skills and strategies from a seasoned professional, gain a deeper understanding of fundamental game concepts, and become a more well-rounded competitor.

My name is Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert and I’ve been playing Counter-Strike for 18 years, with the last decade of my career playing competitively with top-level teams such as Evil Geniuses in CS 1.6 and Cloud9 for the majority of CS:GO. During my time as a pro I spent at least a few days a week coaching individuals playing CS:GO at various levels. After multiple years of individual coaching, I found that teaching the community as a whole via my Twitch streams and YouTube videos was more effective in reaching many more people! I’ve wanted to create a course like this for awhile and have a collection of tips and tricks learned over my decade of competitive experience to share with aspiring CS:GO players. My goal is to help shape how you view and play the game, and in the end create more well rounded players out of everyone who takes this course.

This course is built for players familiar with CS:GO who aspire to play at a higher level. I will help you master various skills by providing lectures, in-game examples, and practical tips that apply to each topic. Specifically, this course will cover:

*Intro sections include background on myself and my journey to pro, before jumping into the following*

  • Setting up CS:GO and finding the configuration that works for you

  • Mastering game mechanics, including:

    • Aiming

    • Crosshair placement

    • Recoil control

    • Grenade usage

    • Angles & positioning

    • Movement

  • Communicating effectively and efficiently during the three round phases, Solo Q and team play

  • Strategizing for early, mid, and late round play on both the CT and T side

  • Developing a process-oriented attitude to continually practice, improve your game, and avoid “ladder anxiety” as well as getting down on yourself

  • Utilizing offline servers to help practice outside “the game”

  • Utilizing community servers (DM, Retake, Surf/KZ)

  • Finding mentors and playing with/against better players

  • Approaching individual practice for maximum improvement

You’ll also get your hands dirty in-game by completing the activities and drills provided in each section. While the lectures will cover my best practices and key concepts for playing CS:GO, the activities will be your chance to apply what you’ve learned and find what works best for you.

I know that this course will help you not only fine-tune your skills in-game, but also to develop the professional attitude and practice-focused mindset that got me to where I am today. By the end of this course, you will be prepared for competitive play no matter what level you started at. If you’re ready to start the journey to high-level CS:GO, enroll in this course today.

Hi and welcome to this course. I’m super excited to be here teaching you all about Chess endgames. Now, why a course about Chess endgames?

Most people view chess endgames as boring but a necessary evil. However, I have tried to make this course as fun as possible and have only covered the necessary parts that a beginner requires.

Remember that many beginners don’t even reach the endgame phase, but those that do reach have shockingly less knowledge of the endgame and draw or even lose positions that should be won or fail to draw positions that are clearly drawn. The aim of this course is to prevent those mis-steps from happening.

A quick introduction to myself - I’m a FIDE rated player and have several years of experience teaching beginners all about chess. More than that, I have several course in Udemy that are tailored towards beginners and this course draws from the experience that I have gained from what works best for beginners on this course.

Will learning the endgame techniques in this course dramatically improve your rating? Probably not, but the solid understanding that you gain with these endgames will help you sustain your rating and as with any other skill, chess is a matter of theory and practice. So the more games you play and the more chances you have to apply what you learn in this course, the better you will become as a player.

ACTUAL STUDENT REVIEW

Brilliant course, Excellently taught “For anybody who doesn't know the math of poker it is like you are simply guessing at what you are doing. I have often wondered how much maths are involved in poker but have never bothered to investigate this. When I saw this course on Udemy I immediately thought that is a must for me as I was one of these guessing Poker players. Having watched a lot of poker on various TV channels in the UK Some of them have said , "you don't need to know much maths to be reasonable."

This course is designed to take you through all the available table games, what the focus of each game is and how it compares to slot machine play. By the end of this course you will be able to walk into a Casino knowing which table game you want to play.

We'll cover:

Quit Video Games For 30 Days: Boost Your Productivity

*Last Updated August 2018*

In this course I provide some in-depth insight on how quitting video games for an entire 30 days helped me boost my productivity and change my outlook on playing video games in general.

I personally battled with video game addiction years ago playing games such as World of Warcraft and EverQuest. This course reflects on those experiences and how they affected my life.

If you decide to take this challenge of quitting video games for 30 days I'm going to share with you some simple ways you can:

  • Boost overall productivity

  • Work on more of your personal goals

  • Use a "to do" list goal approach to accomplishing more in your free time

Taking a break for 30 days is a good way to step back a bit if you've been playing games for all your life like I had. I found I'm now able to easily get more done and not commit so much time just to playing games. It's improved my self discipline and mental state of mind. 

Of course quitting games entirely is a big step, my biggest recommendation is to take this course and commit for 30 days. After that you can choose to go back or simply play a lot less in your free time then you may have been before.

Have you ever had one of those all-in-one game compendiums and wondered what those triangular points were? Are you looking for a new hobby that takes less than an hour of your time to learn but a lifetime to master? Then the world's oldest and most addictive game might just be for you.

Invented in Persia around 5000 years ago, Backgammon is played all over the world from the cafes of Istanbul to the prestigious World Championship held in Monte Carlo every August. It is a wickedly seductive game of skill and luck where in any given game a total beginner can defeat an esteemed grandmaster through hot dice alone but where superior skill will always pay off in the long run.

I started playing this wonderful game in 2012 and it has become a semi-obsession of mine. I am now playing at an expert level and competing in tournaments whenever possible (not easy as I live in China where it seems no-one has ever heard of it!).

I want to pay forward what this amazing game has given me by introducing it to a new generation of players. I use the very best software to illustrate the concepts in plain English, all appropriate jargon is clearly explained as this course assumes no prior knowledge of how to play.

The Complete Guide to Chess Tactics

Chess Tactics, Calculation and Pattern recognition skills that will enable you create beautiful winning combinations

FIDE CM Kingscrusher has one goal of the course. And that is to make you a much stronger tactician than ever before in your life. You should be in a much better position by training with this course to create beautiful chess combinations on the chessboard which feature a wide range of patterns and demonstrate amazing calculation ability.  In short, the goal of the course is to make you a very strong chess tactician and help you enjoy your chess to the absolute maximum.

This course has a structure which is essentially is "process" and "patterns".

PROCESS: The Art of Chess Calculation

The "process" aspect is the art of chess calculation. Even if you didn't know a single tactical pattern by name, you could still play amazing tactics just with great calculation which the course gives you a solid foundation in. Yes, even if you didn't know your forks from your pins, the "Process" part of the course as in the art of calculation would still enable you to play great chess combinations using an entire orchestra of tactical patterns without even knowing their names.

But training yourself on patterns will enhance your art of calculation and you will be able to name the key tactical patterns which are important for searching them out to practice and discuss with others as well as prompt during your calculations.

"Process" is like the software of your chess mind. "Patterns" are like the Content for that software. You need both the software and the content to be really effective as a tactician!. 

==================

PROCESS -><-PATTERNS

YOUR STRENGTHS OF POSITION (PLUSSES +'s) ====> MATCH WITH <=== (MINUSES -'s)

DOWNSIDES OF OPPONENTS POSITION (FOR MAXIMUM DIFFERENTIAL between the PLUS AND MINUS)

BOTTOM UP APPROACHES >----< TOP DOWN APPROACHES

==================

Patterns help feed the process of calculation. Your goal often is to create a maximum differential between the strengths of your position which can be realised from very strong calculation skills and the downsides of the opponent's position which often requires a trained intuition and eye for potential downsides to ensure you are even aware combinational solutions might exist.

==================

PATTERNS: Tactical Patterns, Mating Patterns, Weakness of Position patterns.
