Strategic planning is one of the most important skills a chess player can learn. It is well known that playing with a bad plan, is much better than playing with no plan at all. If you want to succeed at chess it is crucial to start coming up with a good plan. That’s where the problems come for 95% of chess players.
All chess players want to learn how to attack, but they don’t realize that the reason why their ELO isn’t 2200 yet is because of their poor defensive technique, not the attacking skills. The truth is, the ability to attack and to defend are equally important.
The Queen’s Indian Defense is a very powerful weapon for those who think that a draw against 1.d4 is not enough. Many world champions employed this opening with great success. Bobby Fischer, Garry Kasparov, and recently Magnus Carlsen achieved many brilliant victories with a help of the Queen’s Indian.
It is not a secret that majority of chess games are decided in the middlegame. Nevertheless, many club players prefer to spend their time on the openings, tactics and endgames completely bypassing such an important element of chess as the middlegame.
Many of the strongest Grandmasters agree that psychology is one of the most important factors in chess. It is not a secret that strong GMs can identify their opponent’s emotional state, read their fears and predict plans. Some grandmasters are able to not only manage their own emotional state, but also to identify and exploit the emotional state of their competition. Needless to say, the ability to do that can often decide or dramatically alter an outcome of the game.
King and Pawn Endgames are probably some of the most important and fundamental endgames in chess. Many amateur chess players deceive themselves thinking that because there aren’t many pieces left on the board, king and pawn endings are simple to play.
