Saving Lost Positions
(4 hours 2 min)
From time to time, you’re going to get into losing positions. It happens even to the world’s best players. So how should you approach these positions?
Most players would give up in such situations and leave a lot of rating points on the table.
On the other hand, there’s a breed of players who often swindles their way out of lost positions. It almost seems like they got a lucky escape.
In fact, during his professional chess career, GM Avetik was often called – ‘lucky Avetik’. That’s because he used to save lots of lost positions. And since many people had no clue how he did it, they attributed it to him being lucky.
However, saving lost positions (or SLP) is a skill anyone can learn. And this course teaches you that. You’ll learn:
- The specific mindset you should adopt when you’re in a difficult position.
- How to provoke mistakes from your opponent in such situations?
- How to train to improve your SLP skills?
…and much more.
For Avinash Ramesh, learning to save lost positions (or SLP) was the most important skill he picked up from ChessMood, and it played a big role in him going from 1900 to 2400 FIDE elo and scoring 1 IM norm in 1 year!
This course will give you the tools to hone and sharpen your SLP skills. As you become good at it, your opponents will hate you, or compliment you by calling you lucky 😀 But only you’ll know it’s not just about luck 🙂
