The second workbook in the series Thinking Ahead

The group of people for whom the book is useful is very broad.
The first target group are those who have worked through all the workbooks from Level 1 to Level 3 plus. In addition, all chess players from the higher levels who have gone through the lower levels too quickly (which often results in too slow or no progress at all). The importance of such workbooks is increasing.

Thinking ahead is an essential skill in the game from the moment the opening theory stops and you have to think. Impeccable thinking ahead is necessary throughout the game - and if we're honest - for much longer, namely until the moment you stop playing chess altogether. So it's worth practicing. It's notable that many players' ability to think ahead without making mistakes has clearly stagnated. Why? But this skill is trained much less when working with a computer. After a move comes the countermove and you don't have to keep the position in your head. The ability to keep positions in your working memory is necessary to play chess better.

In addition to the tasks with moves under the diagram, the blind exercises in this workbook are even better suited for this. The different exercises are more varied than in the other workbooks. Some of the topics from level 3 return. This gives an indication of which information needs to be retrieved from long-term memory. This means that a large part of the working memory is then available for thinking ahead.
