In this video, GM Igor Smirnov will share with you the main secret of strong chess players. Sadly, many chess players do not understand this, and therefore, they are stuck in their ELO rating and make no real progress no matter how much they train and how hard they try.

Smirnov illustrates the main secret of strong players using the games of the world champion Magnus Carlsen!

The main difference between a strong player (top grandmaster, like Carlsen in this case) and club players is that even though the goal of a chess game is to checkmate the opponent’s king, that is rarely the winning strategy in the games of strong players and top grandmasters.

Rather, the strong players’ winning strategy is to go after the opponent’s pawns – find out the weak pawns of your opponent, fix them, and attack them. By seeing the games in the video, it will be clear for to understand why Carlsen plays such moves that didn’t make much sense in the first place.
