Improve Your Decision Making, Volume 1:
Responding to Threats
by FM Dalton Perrine
Do you find yourself constantly defending against your opponent’s threats all the time? Do you get stuck playing passively and feel like you can never get your own play going? Do you need to improve at defense? If so, then this is the video course for you!
If you improve at noticing your opponent’s threats, defending against them using good decision making and then counterattacking effectively, then you can become a very feared player. The goal of this video course is for me to help you improve at the skill of defense in chess and the video course is catered towards the unrated to 1200 Elo range. Throughout this 2.5+ hour video course you will be learning the step-by-step thinking process you should have when it is your turn to move that will help you to notice any problem your opponent might throw at you. You’ll also be learning the four main methods of defense and how you can use the process of elimination to defend against your opponent’s threats to win material and checkmate you. After that you’ll be learning the difference between passive and active defense as well as getting an appreciation of how active defense can really help to elevate your game. Finally, you’ll get to see some examples of grandmasters making big blunders which could have been avoided if they had watched this video course. ☺
Be sure to check out the four different videos in this course, study the positions, learn from our discussion and apply the tips, tricks and advice in your own games and I’m sure you’ll become a strong defender and your opponents will think twice about attacking you.
