I dont think this course is close to having as much value as any other course on the platform. Counting is an important skill and there are a few very important aspects mentioned here, but for more complex ideas, like "How to compare corner variations to another", there is very little practical content to learn from.

Small but very informative course. The given examples were very appropriate.

This has helped me way more than I could have expected or hoped from such a tiny course. I've been trying to form the habit of using score estimation during games since I watched Stanislaw's lessons and the difference in mindset it brought me cannot be overstated: better focus, better whole board awareness and most importantly better sense of direction in the midgame.

This course is not long, but Stanisław brings such a contagious energy to the discussion, and the topic is such that it would probably not lend itself to a long course. I look forward to seeing more from them! Some of the puzzles were a little unusual and I think overly harsh in what was granted as correct vs not granted, however this is a largely secondary concern
