End of Chess Season Vlog Series 2017

Well I played my last games of this years OTB chess season yesterday and what great games they were too.

I’ve had an array of high and low performances of chess play throughout this season and on each occasion the experience has helped me grow as a chess player. My research into unfolding the secrets of the art of chess has been an intriguing journey of self discovery which still keeps me so humble with its vast intricacies.
Match after Match I have analysed, critiqued and made changes to the way I approach the next match. To keep me on track and readily prepared for the next season, I have logged my own personal ‘End of Chess Season vlog series’ for reference.

My vlog’s focus is on a crucial aspect of delivering an acceptable performance consistently – ‘Chess Openings’. I take myself through 22 vlog sessions covering all aspects of simple chess piece development, right from the first move through to the transition into the midgame and endgame. The vlogs are not technical and non historical, they are designed to be simple, direct and practical guides to keep me from trying to be too arty.

As the season has ended I’ll be taking a little break from intense chess training, I’m hoping my vlog series gives me enough reference material on my return later in the year πŸ™‚
