GM Misa Pap’s “Make the Right Decisions in Critical Positions!” - Patient Play

Opening: A30, C65:

Player(s): Pap, Frank, Savic

We all like to play as if there were fireworks on the board, with tactics everywhere and coups de génie that allow us to get a significant advantage or even win the game on the spot.
Winning by sacrificing a piece - best if it's the Queen - is something that gives us that massive sense of accomplishment, and makes us feel good.
Sometimes, though, you need to play patient and as always according to the position. What is on the board doesn't always allow you to have a fantastic play or brilliant sacrifices; sometimes, play is quiet, and you need to be patient. And if you get your chance, use it! But, before that, be patient!

In this seventh video of his course, GM Misa shows us some brilliant examples of how a game can be won by being... patient. Don't get it wrong, though!  Being patient means to check the position carefully, to assess your chances and those of your opponent, to make the right decision: being patient doesn't mean being passive!

Don't miss the Learning Center Course for this video series!
