GM Mesgen Amanov – Chess Lessons (Volume 3)
In this course you will learn how to approach studying chess in the most effective way.
First of all, you have to make time for chess. Understanding how much time is needed to study chess really depends on your goals.
If you take Grandmasters who play chess for a living – they will study chess between 6 and 8 hours per day. If your rating is around 2000 you should study between 1.5 and 2.5 hours per day to get to the next level, which is 2200.
If your rating is around 1500 you should study 1 hour a day so you can look forward to get to the next level of around 1800. And finally if you are 1200, it would be nice to spend 30 minutes per day, so you can get to the 1500 level.
What material should you study? High quality books are always a good option. You should set up a real chess board and analyze Grandmaster games or solve puzzles on the board.
Watching video lessons is always good too, but only if you watch credible chess instructors. Watching random youtube videos won’t help you, that is all just for fun. Watching online streaming where someone is playing blitz won’t be of much help to you either.
When you study chess you have to think deep. And that is what GM Mesgen Amanov is here to teach you.
