Michelangelo felt a sculpture was "waiting to be released" from a block of stone. In chess every position has a hidden solution waiting to be discovered.
I am forever fascinated with chess improvement, or, the lack of it. How can you get better at something so deceptively simple, yet so unforgivingly complex? It is not only about studying and years of work toward mastery as the prodigies defy this by their "wormholes" to perfection. What and how do they see that we, the ordinary ones do not? Is there a Matrix?
