Squeezing Drawish Positions
International Master Nazí Paikidze taught this Squeezing Drawish Positions lesson as a live seminar in the Prodigy Program. This one-hour lesson is suitable for very advanced and expert chess players (1750-2100 Elo) who want to improve their prowess in technical, dry positions. Nazi selects positions that are seemingly 'equal' or 'dead draws,' but which feature some small imbalance in favor of one side. From such examples, Nazi shows the student how to build on small, technical advantages in order to score the full point.
