The Polgar Method

The Polgar Method

IM TigerLilov

GM Susan Polgar has had phenomenal success at chess training, both as a former prodigy and as the award-winning coach of SPICE.  The proof of her method’s effectiveness can be seen in the records she set (including former Women’s World Champion and the first woman to become a full GM) and the achievements of her students (see Wesley So, now a world top 10 player).

The Polgar Method is all about understanding the logic behind moves. Why one move is better than another. How we can find the strongest move in a real game situation. All of this is made memorable by demonstrating GM games, showing how ideas play out.

Expect to learn:

  • What you must do to improve your practical skills.
  • How to defend against in critical positions.
