Dominating Closed Positions with GM Mikhalevski

Closed position is perhaps one of the most complex types of positions at chess. Many amateur players choose to stay away from those positions simply because it appears crowded, over-complicated and plain unfriendly.

A majority of club players have difficulty coming up with a game plan and gain the initiative in such positions. And that’s not surprising.

Most materials teach us how to play the open positions. It is indeed important.  However, a good understanding of closed positions is as important, if not more important, because it’s where most amateurs struggle. Closed positions are an Achilles’ heel for many chess players.

Those players label it “inferior” and prepare for a long-lasting defensive struggle. No surprise the game, oftentimes, ends not in their favor. They simply shrug their shoulders and complain “a closed position, very tough game”.

Sounds Familiar?

You are not alone. Many club players are in the same boat of not knowing how to treat these kinds of positions.

The good news is we have a solution for you. It’s really not as complicated to learn those as you may think.

Not all of those are his own. Some are borrowed from very strong players like Magnus Carlsen, Vladimir Kramnik, and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. They’ve been tried and tested in the most competitive environment but at the same time are easy-to-understand and easy-to-use. By simply learning this ideology you’ll start making a better judgment, coming up with a good plan and begin making strong moves.
