Critical Moments training seminar

Identifying the critical moment in chess is a difficult skill, problematic even for the strongest GMs. Such opportunities may happen only two or three times a game but can make the difference of an extra half or full point. This training event is intended to help you sense better when the moment has arrived and decide how to act.

The primary focus will be on practical application through solving exercises and playing positions after following demonstrated examples. Aimed at all aspiring players prepared to work hard on improving their game, up to titled level.

The husband and wife duo, both FIDE trainers, aim to help players adopt proven methods of thinking for approaching critical moments. It is a subject that has had far less attention in chess theory over the years than it deserves. Jonathan will lay out the theoretical aspects and Keti will share her practical experience and insights from competing against Grandmasters over many years. Examples are selected for their inspirational as well as educational value so attendees can enjoy a wealth of fantastic chess.
