FM Charlie Storey focuses on how to improve your positional chess skills. Positional chess in essence is the skill to correctly assess and evaluate positions and determine the right plan of action. Positional chess allows you to filter out what's key and important in any given position and from there you can devise your plan, make your necessary calculations, etc.

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

About the Author

In 1991 FM Charles Storey had a severe allergic reaction, which left him in a serious debilitated and non-communicative state for over 2 years. 

During this time period Charles began devising a training method based on computational thinking and logic to help him improve his chess skills and turn his situation around around.  Over the next several years, Charles refined his theories to help others enhance their chess ability by using computational thinking for the human chess player.

Today, The Super Human Chess Engine has helped create the fastest FIDE improvement of a 10-year-old UK player within three years to reach 2242 FIDE rated.

Enjoyed the Video Review by tango7
The lesson is on techniques for a better game. This is something that's not touched on by many Chess instructors. The Threempo is great concept, however it's not demonstrated by example before the first move is made.
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.

Improve your Positional Chess Skills - by FM Charlie Storey Review by cthulhutheold
This video is one that is uniquely appropriate for those that wish to grasp the ideas to assist you in understanding the ideas in your openings and play. Being that he is a Teacher, it is presented in a fashion easy to digest. It is also good for reinforcing concepts which we tend to loose track of. This is one you may want to take a look at.
