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.
