Download Bobby Fischer: His Approach to Chess by Elie Agur PDF

By Elie Agur

First, why you this e-book will be for you.

The strengths of this e-book is the method of learning the play of Fischer. The strategy hired within the improvement of this publication is unusual and intensely powerful to truly examine the features of a private taking part in type. The research and dialogue is perfect for a constructing (but now not inevitably already powerful participant) typically. The concerns in reading Fischer's type should be utilized to any chess grasp that one may perhaps study.

Why did the booklet drop to 3 stars?

The research is normal too superficial to supply any actual deep perception into the positions. This probably as a result power of the writer (FIDE approx. 2250). He definitely does a greater task at explaining positions than sure GMs which are simply "mailing" of their research, yet does not come wherever close to as regards to the pinnacle chess writers equivalent to Beim, Marin and Soltis (and sure others). there are lots of occurences the place video games finish with the remark "and then it really is Fischer's technique". The e-book is set procedure however the writer by no means relatively "gets" that Fischer's approach and protective talents allowed Fischer to make competitive judgements. definite, he alluded to this in lots of sections, yet no synthesis used to be supplied to truly supply an image of why Fischer's skill was once so dominate in his run opposed to the Soviets. this sort of dialogue may have greater the ebook significantly. in its place, the e-book is selection of attributes characterizing a taking part in variety with in most cases 4 or 5 examples. My major challenge is that almost all examples and features may be came upon for many best GMs. the writer did little or no to distinction the effectiveness Fischer's type opposed to the gamers of his time or maybe the avid gamers as much as the book date.

In end ...

If you are an aspiring enhancing participant, this ebook is a fascinating and instructive learn yet do your individual homework! wade through a publication like Soltis' Fischer Rediscovered and definitely learn Bobby Fischer's My Sixty so much Memorable video games. simply forget about the truth that the attributes are hugely comparable and infrequently an merchandise like "timing" can't be disconnected from all of the different features and possibly will not be mentioned at its personal subject.

Download Chessboard Magic! by Irving Chernev PDF

By Irving Chernev

This can be a great e-book. truly, no longer the entire positions in it are usual chess endings; a few are middlegames, and a few are very inconceivable (page 115.) The strategies in it are rather worthwhile (see my preface below.) i've got re-compiled, and re-organized the full ebook for private reference. If all of the criminal matters are lined, a re-publication is kind of attainable. Following is the 1st a part of my preface: "Chess is a sort of warfare conception. To win warfare the army operation needs to prevail. The operation is the coordination of many alternative militia. In chess, even the easiest checkmate (R+K vs ok) calls for the correct association of the checking strength and the limiting strength at the contrary strength. I learn Chernev's chessboard magic approximately 15 years in the past, and was once surprised by means of many checkmate or game-saving styles. for instance: the ladder topic of challenge 131 and the criss-cross development of challenge 15. I felt that they have been simply compositions for getting into contests; now not having any pratical experience. definite, a few of them are manner outdoors the chess truth; notwithstanding a few are brilliant adequate. we know a good published knight may perhaps come to a decision a video game. yet a knight by myself cannot do a lot; another piece needs to take part the crusade to carry it to a end. Capablanca wrote, scholar needs to research the coordination among the queen and knight since it will be super necessary in tactical chess. In my very fresh video game, after a wild commencing the location seemed relatively undesirable for me. If i made a decision to play defensively, i'd lose a pawn evidently and the sport ultimately becuase I had basically five mins at the clock as opposed to quarter-hour on my opponent's. I observed that i'll strength alternate my rook pair for his queen and pawn. With the initiative used to be nonetheless to hand; if i may strategically publish the knight, i'd be capable of strength a draw by way of perpectually checking his okay by means of my Q. His rook pair and black sq. bishop couldn't aid a lot; simply because I deliberate to play at the white sqaures basically. The diffence within the variety of pawns didn't give a contribution a lot to the result. by way of attempting to not easy to win with the additional pawn, he allow me checkmate him. The draw was once appropriately the higher consequence. So, the adventure within the coordinate of items may win or draw video games; specifically whilst the clock is operating down. At this level the strategies are the most guns. Like Chernev's the main Intructive video games of Chess Ever performed, this Chessboard Magic! is fantactic, very intertaining and has a few pratical use. the one bitch, i've got, is, just like the so much Intructive, this publication was once no longer prepared in any specific subject. it's very tough to remember what the coed learns. Mr. Chernev and readers have first-class purposes to love his association. I did not comprehend the good judgment. they're correct after they imagine that if the readers prefer to see the subject matter; they could simply use chess endgame books. i need to re-arrangement this slightly otherwise. First it really is used as an instructional notice for me. i'll lookup the topic whilst i must; or while i do know my rivals desire a few particular items i will be able to beware of these strategies and use a few strategies while i've got these items. moment, if the publication might be important for a few chess gamers to arrange for his/her fit good, i think that i've got paid my because of the chess group. ..."
