New: Making the right decisions in chess - Fundamentals

by ChessBase
1/4/2023 – The theme of “decision-making” is an essential part of every chess game. At every moment of the game, you must make a decision that is not only tactical; as psychology, structural preferences, positional basics and good variation calculation are all part of the process of making the right decision.

Making the right decisions in chess - Fundamentals

by GM Elisabeth Paehtz

On my video course I shed light on various fundamentals in chess, and help to master the right decisions in all types of positions. In a total of 6 chapters, we look at the following aspects: the right decision based on tactical factors, decisions in exchanges and moves, complex and psychological decisions in longer games and in defence.

With this, I hope to give the viewer an overall impression of the different phases and areas during a game of chess - with the result of making every player a master in decision-making.
