Mastering mating patterns is the next step to get better at tactics and become a dangerous attacker.
It often bridges the gap between a strong attack against the opponent's King and victory.
So once you become better at sniffing checkmates, your attacking skills naturally improve.
Instead of just solving random puzzles and hoping for the pattern to stick, here you’ll train your vision for each mating pattern with deliberate practice! ...
Below you can see the positions from this course:
Once you finish the course, you’ll start noticing the mating patterns much faster!
The course is best suited for 1200-2200 players.
But if your rating is below 1200 and you love challenges, this course will certainly push your limits :)
And if your rating is higher than 2200, you’ll find many opportunities to sharpen your tactical vision.
