Ok, time to make a new start.
Now where was I?
My latest conclusion was that complex motorskills are the base of good chess. The method of drilling bore great relationship with the microdrills of DLM. The main difference being the quality of the skills to train.
At the moment I'm learning to speak French via the method of Pimsleur. It is a remarkable effective method. Of course I'm continuously asking myself if there are elements in his method that I can use for my new approach to chess. I do the course every morning in my car while driving to work. The teacher says a sentence in English, what I have to translate in French (active thinking required), Then a native French speaker says the same once or twice in French, which I have to repeat (passive). The fact that I have to drive a car in the mean time seems to contribute to the effectiveness of the transfer of the knowledge from the conscious part of my brain to the unconscious part of my brain. I intend to do some experiments with chess based on this idea.
Besides that, I intend to attack the endgame. The Polar Bear has proven to be a solid base for my openings, so I don't have to worry about that the coming years. The book of Lars Bo Hansen will be my guide for the endgame.
