What You Need to Know to Become a Candidate Master

Too many talented players get stuck at club level, prevented from reaching their potential by a lack of direction and the right kind of chess training.

To take that extra step requires just a few small improvements but not just in one area but every part of your game.

In the lecture below, I reveal some the deeper practices that separate Candidate Masters from club players. In short, this free 1 hour chess training will help you bridge that gap or at least understand what is required.

If you want to follow the lecture attentively, you should maximize the broadcast window by clicking at the lecture title on top.

With a focus on the middlegame, the most complicated phase, I will show you how to take control and inject the maximum force into each of your moves, how to win battles for key squares and open lines plus how to neutralize your opponent’s plans.

You’ll learn:

  • How to keep increasing the pressure until your opponent collapses by using forcing moves.
  • Which pieces to exchange – and when – to drain the power from your rival’s position.
  • Novel techniques and ideas for winning the battle for the center.
  • Tips for solving tactical puzzles (and complicated game positions) quicker and more accurately.

We can’t promise this webinar will turn you into a Candidate Master overnight but it will show you what you need to be working towards and give you a gentle push in that direction.

If you’re serious about getting better at chess but don’t have much time to spend on study, our weekly webinars will give you the best return for your time. Real insights, real improvement, every week. And they’re free!
