FM Zaur Tekeyev Reveals…
It doesn’t matter if you can calculate 15 moves ahead…
And it doesn’t matter if your openings are top-notch, computer-aided missiles…
Without the ability to accurately evaluate positions, you’ll still end up making mistakes and throwing away your hard-earned advantages.
Sometimes we call it “seeing the truth in the position”.
What is really going on?
Are you winning? Are you even better? Should you be defending?
Guys like Magnus Carlsen can see the “truth” and evaluate positions at a glance, but for non-masters, a reliable evaluation system is needed.
And that’s what I asked FM Zaur Tekeyev to provide for you.
In Evaluation of Positions Mastery he has broken down the system he uses to evaluate ANY type of position and he has done it in a way anybody of any level can understand.
You’ll discover how to instantly recognize your bad pieces, problems with your king safety, pawn structure issues, and much more.
Basically it’s all the stuff GMs look at when they’re assessing a position.
