Critical Thinking in Chess

Critical Thinking in Chess -- All too often, chess instruction tends to be a ''laundry list'' of general principles that the student is expected to memorize. It is rare when an instructor actually examines how to critically think in chess. It is even more rare when that instructor is one of the best players in the world. Join International Grandmaster Loek van Wely as he analyzes a variety of practical chess positions during the 2011 Metropolitan Chess Invitational Camp. 14 rigorous exercises will challenge the student, and the following ''Q&A'' format will equip the student with the tools to approach any chess problem. Chapters include: ''Finding and Analyzing Candidate Moves'', ''Defending Accurately'', ''Play for a Win or a Draw?'', ''Finding Resources in the Endgame'', ''Evaluating Options and Sharp Calculation''.
