Chess University's Improving Your Decision Making Volume 1: Responding To Threats video course by FM Dalton Perrine offers six high-quality video lessons to help beginners (800-1200 Elo rating) improve their decision making skills.
Do you constantly find yourself defending against your opponent’s threats? Does it ever feel like you get stuck defending and never get a chance to initiate your own play? The fact is that many beginner and intermediate players end up in very passive positions and lose before they get a chance to go forward with their own plans.
However, if you manage to notice your opponent's threats ahead of time and either defend or counterattack at the right time, you can become an opponent that's hard to beat! The purpose of this video course is to help you learn how to detect your opponent's threats in advance and how to make proper decisions regarding defense and counterattack.
Through this 2.5+ hour video course, you'll learn Dalton's step-by-step thinking process, the four main methods of defense, and how you can use process of elimination to improve your play. You will also learn about passive vs. active defense and gain an appreciation for the superiority of active defense.
To wrap things up, you'll get to see examples of grandmasters making BIG BLUNDERS which could've been avoided had they studied this video course. :-)
