A Thought

Three ideas came together for me this morning.

  1. Masters know what they want from a position.
  2. Endgame play is dominated by figuring out what position you want and then figuring out how to get there.
  3. Go is learned by simplifying the game by playing on smaller boards. Chess cannot be simplified by smaller boards, but it can be by fewer pieces.
To reach the next level, I do not need to just get better at the endgame, but to have that infuse my whole approach to the game.
