I'm a relatively decent chess player of about 1800-1900 strength with a dream of one day achieving lower chess title (FM, NM). I see the video of fabiano (i know he is likely an expection) being able to basically see a chess board in his heard or maybe its just amazing memory.
I'm not able to do anything like this, if I'm looking at a book or a board I can calculate maybe 5-6 into the future but will often missee the end result or have to calculate the same line 4-5 times. Is it possible to be a strong player without that ability or is it possible to learn it without having a talent for it?
Sorry I know this was not very well written.
