1.The material found on Ask-Boris has been very carefully divided according to level of play: novice, club player, and tournament player. Some of the files are quite challenging, but that should never discourage you, because the goal is to learn and to gain an advantage over other opponents.
2.Right now I intend to publish mainly opening files, but I will eventually branch out to other facets of the game.
3.Every file emphasizes general principles, positions, and plans, so you can benefit from it even if it’s higher or lower than your level.
4.Your level of play should always determine how deeply you study the opening variations and I have drawn from my two decades of coaching experience when determining how many variations to include at each level.
5.I will make every effort to cover all important lines, but you should keep in mind that even GM's don't memorize every single line of an entire opening system. Your goal should be to master the placement of the pieces, the important ideas, and the general plans.
6.I have tried to find the right balance between text and visual demonstrations. The arrows should help you see what the text is trying to say.
7.It’s not useful to include every single line and variation of an opening system. Don’t be surprised if some moves are “missing.” That just means they are not a priority for that level of play. Your emphasis should be on quality of understanding, not memorizing lines.
8.Customized files will always be available for those seeking high-level material.
9.The system of arrows used in the files is something I have developed over many years. This is how I memorize ideas and plans.
10.I will start out producing one file per week.
11.Those interested in contacting me with questions and requests may do so via the Facebook page (link). All relevant comments will be taken into consideration.
12.I would like to offer special thanks to my friend Shiva for all of his support.
