Descripción

The Woodpecker Method is the name given by Axel Smith to a training system developed by his compatriot and co-author Hans Tikkanen. After training with his method in 2010, Tikkanen achieved three GM norms within a seven-week period.

GM Axel Smith

The quick explanation of the Woodpecker Method is that you need to solve a large number of puzzles in a row; then solve the same puzzles again and again, only faster. It’s not a lazy shortcut to success – hard work is required. But the reward can be re-programming your unconscious mind. Benefits include sharper tactical vision, fewer blunders, better play when in time trouble and improved intuition.

GM Hans Tikkanen

«There are of course many ways to improve the skill in chess, and that is what every chess player wants at every level. But the method of the Swedish master Hans Tikkanen is very original. His colleague Axel Smith coined the name: The Woodpecker Method, published by the Scottish publisher Quality Chess, where so many interesting books come from.»
