The Analytical Thinking System
Interesting point to note: In a real game you need not follow these steps all the time. Instead, you should mostly focus on the consequence of the last move. The last move gives you information about everything that changed in the position and you should think about that most of all. However, while training your thinking skill (as is the case during the 10-Day challenge) I recommend you view the exercises as a “brain-muscle workout” and follow the method step-by-step.
