Yes, even if you didn’t know your forks from your pins, the “Process” part of the course as in the art of calculation would still enable you to play great chess combinations using an entire orchestra of tactical patterns without even knowing their names.

Patterns help feed the process of calculation. Your goal often is to create a maximum differential between the strengths of your position which can be realised from very strong calculation skills and the downsides of the opponent’s position which often requires a trained intuition and eye for potential downsides to ensure you are even aware combinational solutions might exist.
