Hi there, 

On a sunny day, late afternoon two chess players were paired up in the round 5 of Chicago Open. They were both, about the same age, skill and rating level. No wonder the game ended in a draw. They both were trained by the same instructors, read similar books and spend about the same time mastering the game. They were both ambitious and dreamed big.

A few years later these men returned to play in the Chicago Open once again.  They were still very much alike. But there was a difference. One played in the under 1600 section. The other one played in the Open and had a title of a Grandmaster.

Have you ever wondered what makes this kind of difference?

It’s NOT that one person wants success more than others, possesses superhuman skills or insanely high IQ.

Not at all.

The core difference lies in the chess understanding and strategic thinking. Correctly planning the game is the KEY element of success. It is one of the most important and difficult skills to possess.

This is also where 95% of club players struggle.

Often, they don’t know what to play and simply trust their gut. By having no concrete objective, they simply push pieces and assume that things would work out… Chess players who base their play on assumptions get disappointed the most.

That’s not the way to go… Especially if you want to win games.

The best approach is to have a planned and a well-calculated victory.
