How to plot like a strong player

People said that anyone could understand World Champion Alekhine’s combinations and even do them if the chance arose. The problem is that those positions aren’t so easy to get. This course examines the ways in which chess players prepare for the positions from which tactics spring, attacks work, and sacrifices are sound. It also looks at how schematic thinking is used to plot out the game, and weakness awareness is used to both create plans and look for candidates. Toppled off with both opening analysis and endgame technique workshops, it presents a chance for strong players to fulfill their potential and fill their gaps in knowledge.
