NEW: Nicholas Pert: Typical Mistakes by 1000-1600 Players
Learning from our mistakes is, of course, crucially important for players of all levels. In the latest video series from Nick Pert, the English grandmaster and experienced trainer tackles common mistakes that are made by players rated between a FIDE Elo of 1000 and 1600.
GM Nick Pert writes:
"After the success of the Typical Mistakes videos aimed at higher rated players, I have decided to focus on mistakes that are made by players rated from 1000-1600. Within the video series there are several chapters, and each chapter comprises a theme for games played between players rated between 1000-1600. Several games are explained and then there are many interactive examples for the viewer to have a go at themselves. Hopefully this will not only help the viewer to improve their own game, but also motivate you to work harder on areas where there may be a weakness."
The chapters focus on key areas such as “Tactics”, “Openings”, “Endgames”, “Attacking” etc. Each chapter will show several games followed by interactive examples. There are also some summary games which highlight several typical mistakes which are made in the same game.
