How to make chess work for you
It is in my opinion that everyone that indulges in the art of chess, wants to some degree be more efficient in the craft. For those players, there are a variety of things that you can do to do so, but the best is complete study.
To hear someone tell it, you must study chess in a whole tic for tac, but I think otherwise. below I have outlined a study graph by certain teachers that in my opinion once partially mastered, tremendous improvement will be shown.
First, the opening...I think no one is more tedious in their opening than Gary Kasparov... Endings....who else, Alekhine... Tactics....the best, Tal.... Position.... the out of the box thinker, Nimzo ....Middlegame....the crafty, Morphy....and the psychological aspect of chess, who else than Bobby Fisher.
Combining these aspects of the game by these masters of their most strongest point, will help increase your success in the art. Think not, then tell me why!
