IM Jeremy Silman responds to the question, "What kind of study program did you use?":
I mostly looked at endless master games (while simultaneously eating copious amounts of ice cream), sometimes going over several hundred in a single day (only stopping when I was slaphappy and drooling). Most young players I talk to don’t go over nearly enough master games, but now that databases are available there’s simply no excuse for this.
Does one simply just take in the patterns that the masters play? How can one learn like this?
Wouldn't it be better to look at maybe ten games in a scrupulous manner?
