It’s no secret that to become a strong chess player you need to master multiple important skills. Among those skills, however, one is the key to chess mastery.
Yup, you guessed it right… It’s TACTICS.
If you want to improve at chess and have limited number of hours to invest, putting more time into tactics will get you the greatest return.
Mastering tactics, as opposed to positional understanding, endgame or the openings, translates to other parts of the game. By learning tactics to a significantly high degree, everything else simply flows from there. Trust me, you will get surprised how easy things become, once you’re proficient at tactics. It becomes much easier coming up with a good plan, calculating endgames, launching a winning attack and so on.
And the most importantly… your RESULTS become better.
You can’t build a great building on a weak foundation. The same principle applies to chess. You can’t become a great player being a weak tactician.
It took GM Davorin Kuljasevic over a decade to develop a special methodology covering both tactics and calculation – ultimately leading to the Tactics Mastery video course.
This course has a very different perspective on improving your tactics. Instead of taking a usual route of solving 1000s of tactical problems, you’ll learn tactics from a more comprehensive angle combining it with strategical motifs. That’s a far more efficient way of studying tactics, because in the actual games tactics and strategy are always interconnected, following one another.
If you ever wanted to learn how to become a world-class tactician and start finding tactics subconsciously on an autopilot here is your real chance!
