Any updates from those that finished the visualization training? I will not start them for another month, but this post is very interesting.

It was the most fun part of the course for me... I'd be sitting there, eyes closed, visualising. My wife would come up and see me and say "what the blazes are you doing?" to which I would answer "studying chess!"

That has to be weird to the outside world!! lol

It worked for multiplication back in 2nd grade and the Greek Gods back in College, thought I would give it a try. I try and picture the board then choose the color so I have a 3-d image in mind vs just knowing that every odd number is dark on a,c,e,g etc. LOL

I could "work out" each one... give me a square and I can figure what colour it is... but memorising the colour for each square so that I could respond instantly isn't where I am at. Should I try to memorise the colour of each square? Is there a benefit to this?

Oh wait a minute dont let me throw you off track. I am only in month 1...LOL I just noticed they said we need to be able to rattle them off (as well as how to move a N from d4 to f6 every path in our mind) so I just took the liberty to use flash cards for the colors initially. My wife thought they were for my son and put them in his room the other day...LOL

1: ok
2: got this answer a few times, not bad but try the other side, what about b7 pawn ?
3: good (anyway Nc7 then b4 you grab 1 more pawn, but i agree, both win easily)
4: oh no! where is black dark square bishop ? Try to attack knight in d5.

Nice job !
