Master Method Series #17
So many ambitious chess players never achieve anywhere near their potential, held back by some unseen force despite their hard work and dedication.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
GM Daniel Naroditsky draws on his experience as both a prodigy and a coach to identify and cure the 15 biggest weaknesses that hold chess players back – many of which you may have never realized were serious problems before.
By understanding why one mistake follows another, why we suddenly miss an obvious move and how we somehow get out pieces tangled up, we become aware of the potential for these mistakes before making them, enabling us to play better chess.
If you have hit a plateau in your chess results, it’s time to cure some of those deep-rooted problems and set your real ability free.
Think how much better your results will be when you no longer switch off for that one, critical move?
When you learn Daniel’s method for coaching yourself to victory during important games. When you learn how to inject life into your pieces so they become marauding monsters taking over the board…
Here are some of the things you’ll learn:
- Develop the #1 characteristic of great players – beginners never resign, average players resign when they lose material or have no good moves. Great players have the mental toughness and tenacity to keep finding counterplay with ingenious moves like Spassky’s 16…Nc6!!? (diagram).
- Killer calculation – If you’re making tactical mistakes, merely solving puzzles won’t help! Tactical genius involves 3 parts: awareness, accuracy and candidate moves. Daniel shows you how to find the ‘broken’ part and fix it to start playing stronger chess virtually overnight.
- Piece placement paradox – Make the shift to 2100+ level by focusing on the quality, not quantity, of your pieces with Daniel’s insights on the potential energy of each of the pieces.
