An interactive chess training program: Mastering Closed Positions!

In this very instructive and well-structured course, GM Davorin Kuljasevic covers the key ideas and strategies to help you master the secrets of closed positions, increasing your understanding of how to properly maneuver and ultimately win in these types of positions.

"Many players have problems understanding and playing in closed positions. The main aspect is that closed positions require a different kind of thinking compared to open or semi-open positions where thinking is often of the type: 'I go here, he goes there'’, which doesn't really work in closed positions. What's required is abstract thinking in terms of ideas, plans, and maneuvers, rather than concrete variations"

GM Davorin Kuljasevic
