designYou may be wondering how top Grandmasters analyze positions so far ahead. It is really surprising for an average-level player how GMs calculate long variations easily.

 

When I was an International Master (IM), I too experienced similar confusion and wondered about the calculation and planning skills of GMs.

 

Therefore, let me read to you a snippet from the chapter, “The Art of Planning”, in my upcoming book A Promoted Pawn: My Chess Journey. This concerns an important time in my chess development, when I learned the true value of planning.

 

In this lesson, you will see how I analyzed my own game with my coach, GM Vladimir Malaniuk. With great help from my coach, I came to know about the key difference between IMs and GMs when it comes to evaluation and planning.

 

Example

Black to play

 

Imagine you are playing with White in the above position. Now, I’ve some questions for you:

  • Evaluate the position – is White or Black better, or is it equal?
  • What is the plan for White?
  • What is the plan for Black?

After calculating all possible variations, you can watch the video lesson below:

    1. An obvious thing, which you probably make already, is to check the games played by strong GMs in your openings. There are a lot of typical plans, you can learn them from the games of experienced players.

      My new book “A Promoted Pawn: My Chess Journey” contains my discoveries about this topic as well. It will be released soon.

      Best of luck in your chess games!
