You've probably heard many times that it's important to the improvement of every chess player to review their losses, find patterns and then improve, but how does that actually work? Learning from Losses is a course by USCF expert Ryan Murphy in which he reviews his losses to identify key patterns in his mistakes. In this course, the author focuses on three key concepts that often contribute to losses at any level: positional misunderstanding, miscalculation, and having the wrong mindset in better positions.

Ryan then makes recommendations on how to address these weaknesses in training. Besides the 4 video lectures, the author has included 4 PGN files with in-depth analyses, so that viewers can see the amount of detail that should go into analyzing their own games.

This course is best suited for intermediate and advanced level players (1200-1750 Elo) and has a run time of 2 hours and 23 minutes.
