Episode 10 - FM Nate Solon on How analytics and analysis can help your chess
How to use analytics in your chess? What’s the difference between analytics and analysis? How can club players benefit from them? What chess tools help to collect data and analyze it?
FIDE Master Nate Solon joins Ben to share some ideas on the subject. Nate is the Massachusetts State Champion, a data scientist, and a consultant for Chessable.com who’s always looking for ways to improve his own game. He is also the author of the excellent Zwischenzug newsletter.
Three ideas on how to use analytics in chess:
1. Filter by level (study what you’re likely to face and study your peers)
2. Look at your own data (find trends and weaknesses in your play to fix them)
3. Consider going off the beaten path (sound but unpopular openings have surprise value)
