Course outline follows:

FIDE CM Kingscrusher has one goal of the course. And that is to make you a much stronger tactician than ever before in your life. You should be in a much better position by training with this course to create beautiful chess combinations on the chessboard which feature a wide range of patterns and demonstrate amazing calculation ability.  In short, the goal of the course is to make you a very strong chess tactician and help you enjoy your chess to the absolute maximum.

This course has a structure which is essentially is “process” and “patterns”.

PROCESS: The Art of Chess Calculation

The “process” aspect is the art of chess calculation. Even if you didn’t know a single tactical pattern by name, you could still play amazing tactics just with great calculation which the course gives you a solid foundation in. Yes, even if you didn’t know your forks from your pins, the “Process” part of the course as in the art of calculation would still enable you to play great chess combinations using an entire orchestra of tactical patterns without even knowing their names.

But training yourself on patterns will enhance your art of calculation and you will be able to name the key tactical patterns which are important for searching them out to practice and discuss with others as well as prompt during your calculations.

“Process” is like the software of your chess mind. “Patterns” are like the Content for that software. You need both the software and the content to be really effective as a tactician!. 

==================

PROCESS  AND PATTERNS

YOUR STRENGTHS OF POSITION (PLUSSES +’s) ==== MATCH WITH === (MINUSES -‘s)

DOWNSIDES OF OPPONENTS POSITION (FOR MAXIMUM DIFFERENTIAL between the PLUS AND MINUS)

BOTTOM UP APPROACHES AND TOP DOWN APPROACHES

==================

Patterns help feed the process of calculation. Your goal often is to create a maximum differential between the strengths of your position which can be realised from very strong calculation skills and the downsides of the opponent’s position which often requires a trained intuition and eye for potential downsides to ensure you are even aware combinational solutions might exist.

==================

PATTERNS: Tactical Patterns, Mating Patterns, Weakness of Position patterns.
