Description

Chess tactics can not work out without calculation. How to calculate fast and properly? How do train to get this skill? Answers for these questions you will find in this video.
Calculation is one the most sophisticated part of the chess game the beginner must learn to become a strong player. Calculation means to predict better moves from the part of the opponent and the own as deep as the position requires.
First player who described the process of calculation in the chess game as a method was Soviet Grandmaster Alexander Kotov in 1970 in his book “Secrets of thinking of a chessplayer” which is known also as “Think like a Grandmaster”. GM Kotov introduced such important terms as “moves-candidates” and the “tree of calculation”. Since 70s chess as a game has been changed. Players have less lime on the clocks to find right moves. Accordingly methods of calculation were improved by other authors. GMs Mikhail Krasenkov, John Nunn, Valeri Beim, Jacob Aagaard and others contributed in this important part of the chess game. Review of all techniques is presented in the video. One of the important part of qualitative calculation in complex positions is imagination. According to GM Jacob Aagaard this part of chess skill definitely can be trained by solving of difficult puzzles. As a bonus you will find the review of the recent book of the author of the video “Challenge 2020” – the collection of super difficult positions.

Grandmaster and Professional Chess Coach
I’m GM Evgeniy Solozhenkin from Saint Petersburg, Russia. Professional player in the past. Chief Trainer in the Grandmaster Chess School of Nord-West region of Russia at the current moment. Twice champion of Leningrad-Saint Petersburg, winner of club championships of Russia, France, Finland . Winner of tens international tournaments in Europe and Russia, among them Cappelle-la-Grande, Reggio Emilia. World Senior champion (2017) in the team of Saint Petersburg. FIDE Senior Trainer since 2019. World champion Alexander Khalifman recruited me in 1990th as a second. Having stopped active chess carrier in the beginning of 2000th, I started my carrier of professional chess teacher and coach in a chess club of my home city St.Petersburg where I worked with children of all levels from beginners to advanced players. Last years I do train mainly advanced teenagers including members of Russian Youth team. In 2014 and 2015 I was nominated by Russian Chess Federation among three best youth coaches in Russia (3rd and 2nd awards). In 2000 I wrote CD for Chessbase “Opposite Colour Bishop Endgames”devoted to rare ratio of chess material. My book “The Main Spanish Road” on Ruy Lopez with Zaitsev System as a corner variation was published in 2016. Two other my books were published in 2018 (“Play Queen’s Indian Defense”) and 2020 (“Challenge 2020”) As if I was impressed by Nimzowitsch masterpiece “My System”, games of Petrosian and Karpov in my youth, the positional way of playing was established on subconscious level in my own creation. Opening repertoire was wide enough for both sides during my professional chess carrier and it was even increased when I became trainer. Modern chess with its trend of reducing time control dictates the development of certain qualities: quick and correct evaluation of the position, quick and precise calculation of short tactics, deep knoledge of your opening repertoire with clear understanding of up-coming plans for both sides in the middlegame. All is needed. Chess do not stand unchangeable. Chess as a game still is developing. Some aspects of modern (sometime called “computer”) chess are represented in my last book “Challenge 2020”. I speak Russian, English, French.
