New: Robert Ris: Calculation Training Booster
For those who haven’t recently done any calculation training, there is the Calculation Training Booster. After all, every chess brain needs regular stimulation, as you don’t want to become a lazy player - avoiding calculating critical variations or simply failing to calculate properly. More than often we miss simple things or make silly mistakes not because we were unable to see it, the reason is we did not calculate enough. Calculating the necessary variation not only help us see the imminent and potential dangers but also creates opportunity for us to gain the upper hand. It also helps us to save time and handle time pressure well. Photo: ChessBase
