Description

To be a top player you must have a good grasp of chess strategy – this involves accurately evaluating a position, setting goals and forming a long-term plan to realize those goals. This is not as easy as it might sound – most club players never really get a good feel for strategic thinking.

Tactics involve calculations that can tax the human brain, but when you boil them down, they are actually the simplest part of chess and are almost trivial compared to strategy. – Garry Kasparov

If you want to improve your strategic play then it is important to study GM level strategic games with clear explanations. This was the inspiration for this Course from GM Damian Lemos, “Crushing Strategy”.

Featuring 4 deeply analyzed games, GM Lemos reveals what the winners saw in the position that their opponent did not and the thinking process that allowed them to create a long-term strategy. It is this way of looking at the position and formulating a plan which will be of great help in taking the ambitious chess player’s game to the next level.

The misconceptions of the unfortunate losers (all very strong players) are examined so we can learn from their mistakes.

Other topics include:
• Analyzing move orders for the most efficient execution of the plan
• Converting one advantage into another
• Prophylaxis
• Creating a winning endgame many moves before it is reached
• Provoking weaknesses from your opponent
• Playing without risk
• When and how to modify a plan

If you want to be able to look at a position and see what your opponents can’t and win games without them understanding how they lost, then get yourself a copy of “Crushing Strategy”.
