Fans on Chesslecture.com said: Really excellent. It helps a great deal to be reminded of the importance of not "pushing it", and instead to focus on increasing an advantage bit by bit while keeping a keen eye on the opponent's counter-chances. Last night I almost lost a game this way! Fortunately, he was less alert than I in the end! Also, I really liked that you stressed the importance of waiting for "the strike" to appear of it's own accord, rather than trying to force it. Very good practical advice that I will bear in mind for my next tournament game!
