Do you also struggle when you cannot find the right plan in the positions, so you waste precious time and make mistakes?It is a real common problem among chess players, including me. I often don’t know how to play further in unknown positions. In this case I normally try to recall typical positions with plans of which I am familiar with. Then I study the games of Grandmasters in these positions, and create a list of possible variations to play. Finally, I implement these plans in the rapid games. After 15 or 20 games, I know my strategy and play correctly.In order to save you time of playing these 15-20 games and look for GM’s games, I created this course. Here I have already analyzed the GM’s games for you, and have outlined the approximate plans that you should use in different positions and stages of the game, including opened and closed positions, openings and endgames.This method is already tested on my students. We study pawn structures and typical patterns in various positions, and their ability to find the right plans during the game improves significantly.  By choosing the right plan, they follow the pattern and understand better what to expect from the opponent. Of course, you also need to calculate the options, but it is much easier to calculate lines, when you know what will follow in the game.
