Many have become chess masters; no one has become the master of chess.” – Siegbert Tarrasch

This quote from is yet another reminder that there is always room for improvement in our chess game. There’s nothing we do perfectly, and chess always provides us with more to learn and study.

The best way to improve at chess is similar to other subjects – follow the path to wisdom that has been blazed by others. There are no shortcuts; to improve at chess requires high-quality lessons, professional written courses, individual work, positional training …and a bit of talent.
