This course has 10 video lessons about chess patterns on various areas such as recognizing patterns in different stages of the game, recognizing the structure, patterns of tactical and positional play, key patterns, and so on. Today we’ve published one of the video lessons from the course for you – it’s “Patterns of Positional Play”.
In this video, Lilov explains how usually it is better to play quite, safer moves because it simply avoids complications and, hence, there is no risk. He explains how ‘keeping it safe’ is one of the key strategies that strong grandmasters incorporate into their games.
Playing quite, safe positional moves doesn’t mean that you are playing passively and are seldom creating powerful threats and strong attacks for your opponents. It’s just that it is essential to focus on improving your pieces, putting them at better squares, and this can happen one at a time, slowly. You can trust more on your intuitive thoughts to get more space for your pieces and improving them than on big, complicated calculations and variations.
