007 The Importance of Your Thought Process in Chess โ€“ NM Dan Heisman

thought process Mar 01, 2022

Are you studying chess like crazy but not improving?

Even if you relentlessly pore over tactics, openings, strategy, etc…

You may be missing a critical component to your potential chess improvement:

A well-developed thought process.

Sure, this topic may lack the allure of studying the Sicilian Dragon or becoming a tactical wizard who shreds your opponents in minutes.

But as my guest, NM Dan Heisman, says, “Chess is a thinking game.”

So, you must - at some point - focus on your thought process, or you’ll limit your development as a chess player. 

Dan is the ultimate coach for adult improvers and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have him on the show.

He’s written over a dozen chess books, has a popular YouTube channel with over 200 videos, and is well-recognized in the chess world as one of the premier coaches for amateurs.

Here, you’ll learn:

  • The most common mistakes players under 1500 USCF make in their thought process - and how to fix them. 
  • 2 questions to almost always ask when it’s your move and you’re out of book.
  • How do you choose among different candidate moves?
