In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov talks about one of the most overlooked, and at the same time, one of the most important chess subjects – chess visualization.
Chess visualization is about your ability to see (visualize) different moves and variations in your mind without moving the pieces on the board. Playing the game of chess is nothing more than visualizing different possible variations and picking the best one.
It would not matter if you know all the tactical motifs or if you are good at calculating variations. If you cannot see/visualize the position accurately while calculating, you will inevitably make a lot of miscalculations and blunders.
In this training, GM Igor Smirnov teaches how to do an interesting exercise of visualizing 3 moves ahead. It is important an skill to be able to visualize 3 moves because most of the chess calculations and tactics involve at least 3 moves.
