The Grandmaster Mindset

Every year chess knowledge increases rapidly, and it is getting harder and harder to find one’s way

through that giant forest of chess information. As a young player, I used to take lessons from respected

coaches — mostly grandmasters — with the idea of learning to orientate myself in that forest by

absorbing their great experience, but in a concise way. After my theoretical books about the Richter-

Rauzer Sicilian (written together with former European Champion, GM Zdenko Kozul) which went into

great depth, this time I wanted to focus more on general skills which I find essential for every young

player, and even for club players who are already familiar with some of the ideas covered in this book.


By going through the chapters you will get acquainted with my way of grandmaster-type thinking. I can

assure you of one thing: there are better and weaker grandmasters, but you won’t find a GM who is

playing without ideas or, let’s say, without his way of thinking! As you will find out, I am basically trying

to detect the problem or goal of the position and then I am starting to scan factors which can lead to the

solution. That process you will find in many examples in the book.
