021 Switching Openings & Defeating Rating Plateaus with Daniel Lona

Jun 14, 2022

This week’s format is different.

Every few months, I’ll create a solo episode where I update you on my own chess journey:

The top challenges I’m having, the best insights I’ve gained, and the latest wisdom my coaches, Andras Toth & Dan Heisman, have offered me.

I’ll try to frame it in ways that benefit you, so that you get a heap of value from listening. 

This week’s topics:

  • Why I no longer play the French Defense and key resources for determining how/when to change your openings.
  • The top 3 insights from my coaches that'll help me see some massive rating gains.
  • Why dealing with a rating plateau is a true test of character and how I intend to bust through this phase.
