A jack of all trades is a master of none – or so the saying goes. And this is the very idea addressed in The Chess Toolbox.
In part 1 of a new series optimized specially for Chessable, IM Thomas Willemze comes armed with the vital tools to fix the most urgent problems in your game.
Get the right tools for the job!
Our chess handyman has carefully selected six areas that need attention for any ambitious club player; they are the key ideas that will be the most beneficial for your improvement.
All six themes outlined here are all related to one central theme: piece coordination. Nail that and you will hammer down on chess improvement!
Lesson 1: Making the right exchange
The Chess Toolbox 1 – Exchange your Way to Victory teaches you six powerful weapons to use the exchange of pieces to your benefit:
🔨 ELIMINATE an important defender;
🔨 EXTINGUISH a key attacker;
🔨 LIFT a blockade;
🔨 GET RID of an inferior piece;
🔨 CHANGE the structure;
🔨 SIMPLIFY your position (why and how);
🔨 and much more.
You will learn how to obtain superior piece coordination by keeping your strong pieces and leaving the bad ones with your opponent.
FRESH NEW CONTENT:
While optimizing this course for Chessable, IM Willemze developed additional exercises, extended a few chapters, and added a new chapter that teaches you how to eliminate an attacker.
In this, the first of a newly-adapted four-part MoveTrainer™ edition of The Chess Toolbox, IM Willemze demonstrates how important concepts like structure and initiative can help you to find the right destination for your pieces.
Never forget: chess is fun!
The Chess Toolbox is built around the idea that when you study chess, it is much more effective to become an expert on a limited number of topics than to acquire only a shallow knowledge of almost everything.
In short: if your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. So get tooled-up with IM Willemze now and start fixing your game.
