I'm looking for a quote I read about how the advice a teacher might give would change by rating. I thought it was by Dan Heisman, but I haven't been able to find it.
The idea of the quote goes something like this:
Suppose I observe two players play the following moves: [[ 1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nc6 ]]
- If the Black player is rated 800, I might say "Good, you are developing a piece off the back rank."
- If the Black player is rated 1300, I might say "Be careful about blocking your c-pawn with the knight. In queen pawn games, ...c5 is often an important pawn break needed to open files for the rooks."
- If the Black player is rated 1800, I might say "Have you been having success with the Chigorin Defense?"
Does anybody know where I might find this quote?
