With his work, the author primarily addresses amateurs and club players (up to a rating of approx. 2000), who want to improve their level through targeted and effective training. For this purpose he uses an unconventional approach, and a sometimes unusual terminology. The reader is thus presented with an innovative model of thinking which enables him to quickly grasp the material and positional characteristics of a position. A model that aims to make a comprehensive set of rules dispensable and focuses on the essentials, namely on intense exercises of seeing and independent thinking. On the basis of well-selected exercises, the reader can learn and internalize how to find solutions to key problems - such as recognizing patterns and detecting strong moves. With all this, the author gradually progresses from simple beginnings to more difficult and eventually quite demanding content, which requires the reader´s thorough cooperation. Those who steadfastly follow him on this path will experience how their own potential in terms of combat power and skill level increases. Patrick Karcher is a strong amateur and club player, who has risen to the level of a candidate master in a short time thanks to his own training method. The study of his book will also pave the reader´s way to a deeper understanding of the game.
