 Psychological Aspects:

None of the blogs delve into the psychological aspects of chess. Understanding the psychological dimensions such as stress management, concentration, and overcoming tilt could offer a more holistic training plan.

Book Reference:

  • "The Inner Game of Chess: How to Calculate and Win" by Andrew Soltis

Time Management:

While briefly touched upon in the middlegame section, effective time management in various phases of the game could be discussed in more detail.


  • Specialized training modules in chess software that limit time to make decisions.

Opening Repertoire:

The opening section focuses on general principles but could benefit from a more detailed exploration of specific opening repertoires suited to different types of players (aggressive, positional, etc.)

Book Reference:

  • "Opening Repertoire: The Caro-Kann" by Jovanka Houska for players who prefer solid structures
  • "The Sicilian Sveshnikov" by Mikhail Krasenkow for more aggressive players

Error Analysis:

Understanding the types of errors one commonly makes can be enlightening, but none of the guides cover this in depth.

Transition Phases:

The transition between the opening to the middlegame and the middlegame to the endgame is crucial, but not explicitly addressed.

Book Reference:

  • "Chess for Zebras: Thinking Differently about Black and White" by Jonathan Rowson

Exercise and Health:

Physical exercise and a balanced diet have been shown to improve cognitive functions, including those utilized in chess.

Online Resources:

Although the blogs mention some tools, the inclusion of YouTube channels, forums, or other online communities could be valuable.


  •'s YouTube channel for various topics
  • Reddit's r/chess for general discussions and advice

Review and Adjust:

A section on periodically reviewing one’s progress to adapt the training plan could be beneficial.


  • Use of ELO tracking tools and analytics platforms

Adding these dimensions could make the guides more exhaustive, offering a more 360-degree approach to chess improvement.
