Thanks Phil, this is the best article I have read on how to improve one's game. Its practical and I have struggled to get my rating to move upwards over the last 4-5 years. I especially like the idea of taking a position and playing all possible rolls from that position. Sounds like a great way to learn and I can't wait to test it out.
It seems good ideas just keep spreading. I've been doing the same thing with my students since I first developed a course in 1991. Can't recall who I first got the idea from. But starting from set positions, and slight variations, certainly allows the student to get a handle on what's happening, and how the game is likely to pan out from each position.
