Improve Your Positional Chess Skills!
In this hot new course, FM Charlie Storey focus on how to improve your positional chess skills. But, what are positional skills?
It's not easy when it comes to describing a general chess skill. Still, FM Storey, with his long and proficuous coaching experience, presents you with a video-course that tackles all the aspects of positional chess.
Charlie, with his unmistakable style - witty and at times provocative - guides you through 12 chapters:
1) Assessing / Evaluation is simply your opinion
2) Improve your Pieces (including central pawns) from Red to Yellow to Green to Purple
3) Pawn Structure is overrated unless the activity (color coding) is equal
4) Never touch a pawn unless it is a central pawn
5) Never start a "fair trade of pieces" as it will improve the color of one of your opponent's pieces
6) Preventing is a last resort. Only when you have an excellent reason. Reduce your opponent's color-coding.
7) Small range plans with a tempo are far better than small range plans
8) Changing positional advantages to a different positional advantage
9) Positional Stereotypes (Precise Calculation is better)
10) Popular Positional Plans
11) Combinational Skill is needed to execute your good positional plan
12) Aiming for an ending with a better position

In addition, the author states that positional play is best suited for White, Black has to mix things up (I found this odd). I guess that's why all the examples were with White, which was disappointing. I definitely recommend the video, FM Storey is a good instructor. He's not entertaining, but he can get you to the end without boring you to death. It's the first Chess Video I was able to complete because it kept me interested.
