How do Grandmasters think in chess? What is so different about their thought process that separates them so far above other chess players?
These are tough questions but the answer doesn’t have to be complicated. The reality is that Grandmasters simply understand the game better than everyone else. Let’s compare your decision-making process with a GM:
On every single move, are you considering every relevant factor on the board before you decide which longer-term plan to employ and which short-term forcing moves to play? Are you considering the positional implications of every move that you make?
Subtle positional and long-term strategic understanding of chess are the most difficult subjects to teach because you can’t take the easy way out and just memorize a few things! I know that it’s hard to study positional concepts and retain the understanding well enough to apply these principles successfully to win more of your games.
That is why I wanted to create this new bundle to focus exclusively on positional play and long term strategy in chess. This detailed course will drastically improve the way you think in chess and overall how you understand the game, it features several different GM presenters (including a few DVDs I made!) so you are going to learn different philosophies about core positional concepts that are going to change the way you play chess.
