Art of Calculation
Do you lose the majority of your games due to silly blunders, missed opportunities or tactical oversights?
If you’re a club level player, most likely those things ring a bell for you…
In fact, nine out of ten chess players lose because of a simple “miscalculation”. Everything could’ve been great… but after a single bad move, the game passes the point of no return. A draw is no longer an option and the only possible outcome is a loss. How many times did you kick yourself, and wanted to come back to that “move 17” and just play a different move? What if it’s a decisive game and the outcome will determine whether you become a champion or get that award?
Unfortunately, we don’t have the time machine… but we do have something else for you which may even be more effective at avoiding miscalculations.
Each and every move in chess is a decision. The quality of the decision you make determines the quality of your play. Both are directly connected to calculation, meaning that calculation basically decides your strength as a chess player…
