The Comfort Zone /Keys to Your Chess Success

I’ve become increasingly convinced of this comfort zone theory to the degree where I’ve started to apply it to chess. To use the same logic, I believe a chess player is more comfortable in an opening that they have played since childhood. They’ll be less likely to make mistakes in that opening. You can also apply it to tournaments as well.

During the course of the book, I’ll talk about the tournaments that I felt comfortable in, and by the same token the opponents that I felt comfortable facing and the ones that I didn’t feel so happy to play. Daniel Gormally.

The Comfort Zone – Keys to Your Chess Success I hate introductions so I’ll keep this short. (A

bit like the good moments in my chess career.) The inspiration for this book came from a golf

tournament on the PGA tour I was watching recently.

They’ll be plenty of golf and sportinganalogies in this book, so if these annoy you, then probably you

should try another book. (Tough cookies if you’ve already bought.) Jason Kokrak won it, his first PGA

tour event.

The Comfort Zone – Keys to Your Chess Success


He’s a solid professional player, but nothing special. Thirty-five years of age. Obviously, I had my

usual losing bets on people like Matthew Fitzpatrick and Tommy Fleetwood. Neither of those have

ever won on the PGA tour, despite having much higher world rankings than Kokrak. So how was

Kokrak able to break through, and they still haven’t? It’s true that Kokrak has plenty more PGA tour

events under his belt than the other two. But given that Fleets and Fitzy have several European tours

wins to their name (admittedly a slightly weaker tour) then you might have expected them to have

broken through by now.

The Comfort Zone – Keys to Your Chess Success


Simply put, these are two players who have grown up on European style layouts, on links courses.

They just don’t have the total comfort zone of having grown up on American courses. To add to

Kokrak’s comfort zone, he was also winning at a course where he was a member and had played

many times.


When Fleets and Fitzy play on the PGA tour, it’s an away game for them, whatever their skill level.

Ok, so when I talked about this introduction being short, I lied. Spoiler: I lie a lot. So should you,

especially over the chess board. Lie about what move you are going to play to your opponent. Lie

about how you are feeling. If you are in your comfort zone, then give the impression that you are not.

Anyway, enough babbling. Let us get on with it.
