I’ve really been fascinated by this guy since I first heard about him on Ben Johnson’s podcast Perpetual Chess. You can hear that interview here.
One of the things that Ben touched on, either on that episode or the one with Pepe Cuenca, was how strong players go about analyzing and solving puzzles. Essentially instead of just thinking about moves they first spend a few moments getting a feel for the features of the position.
Since hearing this I have been working on doing that myself. One of the ways I’ve been trying to teach myself to do that is by watching some of IM Ostrovskiy’s videos in which he does exactly this.
Watch this video. You will not be disappointed.
