A balanced approach
"Chess is 99% tactics" As you can read in the comments of my previous post this saying is busted, even at patzer level. I suspect you already guessed that Since this hypothesis was the basis to my balanced approach to chess (99% tactical exercises), it is clear that I have to find new ways.
Stategy is the new Magic Word. Can we find a few criteria for the new approach? If I have this problem MDLM must have had it too. And he solved it. So a new approach has to be consistent with this. Further analised Loomis the position of the previous post and he had some good idea's about it. A new approach must lead to the generation of such idea's within a minute or 3 - 10. Time for some musings.
