Grandmaster Secrets – Practical Play with GM Alex Lenderman

Grandmaster Secrets – Practical Play With Gm Alex Lenderman

One of the major mistakes over 95% of club players make is working on different aspects of the game independently but never learning to utilize them all together.

Club players learn chess openings, middlegames, and endings separately, but never see those elements working hand-in-hand. Grandmasters, on the other hand, know how to employ all those to create a masterful win.

Everything is interconnected and one stage serves as a continuation of the other – in full harmony.

That’s why you get that feeling of “effortlessness” after observing a GM game. Grandmasters have many “secrets” of practical (aka effective) play that they use for achieving those effortless wins.

This is something very important for any chess player, but unfortunately next to impossible to master on your own.

Or at least it was the case until today…

To help you learn how GMs work during the tournaments and apply their knowledge ChessLessons did something quite extraordinary. They set up a 20-game Blitz Match at Columbia University between the former Youth World Blitz Champion GM Maxim Dlugy, and GM Alexandr Lenderman.
