“All that matters on the chessboard is good moves” – Bobby Fischer.
Well, yeah. We can all agree with that. But how do you find good moves?
There’s great pressure on a chess player. The clock’s ticking, people are counting on you. You look at the board, your pieces, the enemy forces… and you have to come up with something.
One mistake could lose you the game on the spot. Or have you struggling to defend a passive position for the next 50 moves.
Success or failure, death, or glory… it all rests on the decision you make now. Better make it a good one.
Exactly What You’re Getting
Croatian coach GM Davorin Kuljasevic (2591 Elo) has just completed Improve Your Decision Making – a 10-hour course laser-focused on the crucial topic of decision-making.
Drawing on years of experience coaching club players rated between 1600 and 2200, Davorin has identified the 9 types of decisions that players have to make in real games.
He explains the errors in thinking that lead to mistakes at these critical junctures… and gives you easy-to-follow processes for getting them right.
What does the course cover?
- The Complex Center. Should you close the center, initiate a pawn exchange, or wait for your opponent to take? Recapture with a pawn or piece? Many players underestimate the long-lasting impact of these early decisions. Davorin shows you how to come out on top in the central battle.
- Keeping the Advantage: Your initiative can slip away with one inaccurate move. If you’ve sacrificed material or made positional concessions, that can be fatal. This course shows you how to find hyper-accurate moves when attacking so you get the win your play deserves.
- The Opening. Most openings can be navigated well even if you find yourself in unfamiliar territory. GM Kuljasevic shows you how to avoid automatic moves like Nf3 and Bc4 and find the strategically strongest plan – making the rest of the game much easier for you.
- The Endgame. Endgames have all the tactics and strategies that middlegames do, but slip-up here and there’s no coming back. You need to learn when to apply general principles and when to break the rules if you want to be successful. Davorin covers the endgame technique in chapters 19 and 20.
Imagine the difference it would make to your game if every time you were faced with a piece trade, every time you had to decide whether to attack, every time you had to make a strategic decision… you got it right.
This is a unique training program that teaches you how to play better chess by making better decisions.
