Strategies to Convert Winning Positions: Part I
Learn How to Convert your advantages to a win
About the Course
How often do you find yourself in a winning position only to struggle to secure the win? At the end of the game, you might think, “I was so close to winning.”
Sound familiar? You’re not alone. Many players face these frustrating moments when they play exceptionally well but can’t quite clinch the victory.
The challenge with winning positions is that they don’t convert themselves automatically. You must take control and guide the game to its final conclusion when your opponent resigns or you mate him or her.
However, there are essential strategies that top players use to convert more winning positions than the average player. And in this course will we dive into these strategies one by one.
By applying the strategies in this course, you will convert many more winning positions than before, leading to a noticeable increase in your rating.
We recommend first studying the courses “Strategies for Saving Lost Positions” parts 1 and 2. The concepts in these courses often contrast directly with what you will learn here, providing a valuable perspective that will enhance your understanding of this material.
