Finding winning moves is by far the most difficult and important element of chess.
The reason is simple.
There are just too many possibilities for creating a straightforward ‘algorithm’ for identifying the best moves.
Even almighty computer engines struggle in this territory.
Human players aren’t computers. And, Grandmasters have certain advantages when it comes to identifying the best moves.
Instead of calculating everything like a machine would do, GMs only focus on the most important aspects, such as:
- Calculating a winning combination [delivering checkmate or winning material]
- Making a critical decision [gaining positional edge]
- Transitioning to a winning endgame
- Opening or closing the position
Those are just a few examples. But, it’s clear that by following a structured thinking approach, you will save time as well as reduce the number of inaccuracies in your play.
And that’s what this course is all about.
GM Petrov will teach you how to identify the critical positions and explain when, how and what you should calculate.
This is the same ideology GM Marian Petrov has been using successfully for over a decade. It helped him in making key decisions and finding winning moves throughout his own career. And, it worked well for his students too.
