What you'll learn

A structured thinking system that uses intuition & logic helps make the right decisions quickly in any field. Additionally, having a thinking system will help you analyze your successes/failures to learn from them & adjust your thinking system to continuously improve your results. While this class is focused on chess, what you will learn in this class can be applied to any field!

In this class, I will share: 1) The importance of developing a structured chess thinking system (at any level of chess strength) & how it can help you find strong moves quickly by sharing 5-10 examples of typical mistakes chess players make that prevents them from winning more games. 2) I will share my structured thinking system in detail, show you how I applied them in my games & how I learn from each of my wins/losses. 3) I will help you build your foundational thinking system & share training methods you can use to continuously improve your system, build the right thinking habits and help improve your chess results! 

At the end of the class you will have a 1-page summary of your chess thinking system (based on your current level of strength) & a training plan to develop it further.

    Great lesson! The fundamentals were laid out and the most exciting bit was going over my games and analysing why some positions were dubious

    This class was very informative and helped my thought process of how to make a move. We analyzed some key moments in my games and found some missed opportunities and how I can improve them. I highly recommend this class!
