We spent together long hours, talking about different elements of the game of chess, about my career, about my experience. I hope it was useful. But my advice now to you-- remember this is not the end of your journey. It's just the beginning. No matter whether you want to play chess in your family, maybe you play your chess with your kids or grandkids, maybe you have a secret dream to be a grandmaster or world champion, I hope it will be useful, because even if you don't complete your dream, still so many things chess can teach you. And I hope that these lessons will build, in the best way, to help you directly-- you-- to improve the way you're learning, not just about the game of chess, but about many other things. And maybe one day, you will feel that these lessons were important to improve your life. Because at the end of the day, our life is about making decisions, whether we play chess, whether we organize our family life, whether we run business. Everything is based on the quality of our decision making. And chess is a perfect place, ideal field to test your decision making skills. And while going through these lessons, I hope you will find a way to upgrade your software. Hardware is fixed, so what we're born with is hardware. But a software can be always upgraded. And remember that no matter how young or how old you are, there's always the opportunity to get richer as the decision maker, as a person of knowledge. And chess is a perfect tool to move in the right direction. Everything comes to an end, even this MasterClass. I hope you enjoyed it. I hope it will work for you. Good luck, and good chess.
At age 22, Garry Kasparov became the youngest world chess champion. After beating Bobby Fischer’s peak rating, he outranked his fiercest competitors for over twenty years. Now, Garry is ready to share the chess strategy that made him a six-time world champion. Through detailed lessons, including his favorite openings and advanced tactics, you will develop the instincts and philosophy to become a stronger player.
i loved the first part especially Garrys insight with the quality of the examples were great. I think the last 7 or 8 lessons were not chess content.
I have learned that there is no such thing as an equal sacrifice, that sleep and physical fitness is very important for the strength of the mind. That you must critically analyse yourself to become a better player and own your mistakes in order to grow. That chess is about your ability to make decisions in general .
I liked the last analyses and the analyses of the simul. I'd hoped more of that was in this course. Total was great and I learned a lot too. Thank you!!!
I learnt that I have to immediately spend more time on studying end games, learning all patterns possible and study the games of past World Champions and learn how to use their ideas in my games. It is long hard work.
