Help me with this one
What exactly do you want help with?
Your going to atcually have to ask the question before you can expect an answer.
What's the question?
Ubisoft Chessmaster 12 "The Art of Learning" Josh Waitzkin's tutorial from his book. Do the long interactive tutorials @Chessmaster 12 and you won't have any problems I swear :)
I'll second that! The academy lessons are excellent, and taught me everything I know so far.
One's own style seems to be forced to follow from the moves which come to the mind, right?
A lot of garbage gets talked on here armond_sr, unfortunately.
Your personal style isn't something you choose, it develops over time. Don't worry about style right now, you win or lose 99% of your games due to tactics. Either tactics you saw, or ones you missed. Until you can get through nearly every game without overlooking losing a whole piece or getting mated by a simple tactic, forget "style" or openings. They are meaningless.
The best teacher is practice, but you can train with the Tactics Trainer and other puzzles, too.
Ryan, Cabal - I have Chessmaster 10 - are the Chessmaster 12 tutorials different to those in CM10?
Pay attention to Estragon!
Read one of the following books if possible:
Logical Chess Move by Move or The Most Instructive Games of Chess Ever Played both by Irving Chernev
Study endgames! http://blog.chess.com/NimzoRoy/endgame-faqs
The academy section of Chessmaster 11 (there is no 12, made a mistake!) looks like this:
Hope I could help!
Logical Chess Move by Move and/or The Most Instructive Games of Chess Every Played (by Irving Chernev) are one the most recommended books here on chess.com, of which Logical Chess Move by Move should be read first.
Thanks Cabal, that's answered my question.
I think i agree
