In GM Aagaard's own words

From July 19th– July 30th, I will host a camp for players wanting to break through the 2200 barrier.

In order to do this, we are taking a starting point in YOUR games. Send up to 10 games at least 2 weeks in advance. Based on the submissions from all the participants, I will identify the main parts of your games that you need to improve on and provide clear training paths forward.

For this reason, I cannot tell you right now what the content of the camp will be. I have a lot to say and will design the camp entirely according to your needs, with at least 10 different themes covered over the 10 days and clear structured study plans for how to work on these areas after the camp, delivered to all participant in a PDF booklet.

There will be homework for each lesson. I will send out ten sheets of 6 positions, that I will ask you to spend 30-45 minutes on before each lesson. Please do not check the solutions with computer programmes in advance of the lessons, as the process for solving the positions is what is important, less than the solutions themselves. The deadline for delivering homework is the evening before the class. I will mark the homework and return it so you can have a chance to look at it again briefly before the class.

Spectators can send 1-2 games and submit solutions to the exercises, but the focus will be on the target audience.

See you at the camp!

GM Jacob Aagaard
