About this deal

Unfortunately I didn't spot this, not starting to read the book until more than 60 days from puchasing si unable to request refund from vendor. Zwischenzug, in-between-move, where a ranging-piece is able to move fully across the board but stops somewhere in between. You see how a lead in development leads to an attack, how the battle for space affects the entire course of the game, and numerous endgames by World Champion Jose Raul Capablanca where simple and elegant play rule the day. The author can better relate to the reader and provide them the sort of insight that may be lost on stronger players. fantastic scene of torch bearing sacrifice orc-pawn marching up the field as the heroes are lock-horned.

I could not have been more stupid in ignoring this book so long, not to mention being wrong about all of the above. It seems to be a common practice to skip a lot when reading an opening book, but, if I remember correctly, I played over all the lines in the Chernev book.In this popular classic, the author explains 33 complete games, in detail, move by move, including the reason for each one. My goal in reading books like this is to incorporate into my subconscious as many master game patterns as possible: moves humans make, explanations humans give. The games in part three have lessons more subtle than the first two part, I think the theme is that good positional development naturally leads to tactical opportunities.

Maybe it's too early in my chess career, but it's not like I remember any of the chess games that were reviewed. The moves are shown in the book using algebraic notation (e4, Nf3, Qxh8+ as examples) though the piece identifiers are shown as symbols of the pieces rather than R, N, B, Q, K, which I guess some would prefer.I guess Euwe's books have a better quality in the analysis, as Euwe was a very strong player (World Champion). A ideia é genial: "veja aqui os movimentos e A LÓGICA POR TRÁS DOS MOVIMENTOS de partidas que selecionamos".

Game 27: After 25: Count up moves that white can make (by each piece) and find it is 42 to B’s 17, 250% more efficient, a critical advantage of mobility despite no advantage in material. How fianchettoing kingside actually makes the king safer, despite requiring the g-pawn to be pushed. I've been playing Chess casually for years online(not many people I know play it), and I realized that my rating hadn't gotten better in years.As you follow each game, you will start to see where potential attacks come from, and you will find yourself looking for winning combinations in your own games. Blockade with pawns, then start getting king towards center for its unexcelled power among pawns as board empties in the endgame. This did work for a time, but I eventually hit the plateau I've been in and decided I'd start studying the game a bit more seriously. As a fan of the book, I recommend it to every beginner, I'd like to point out that the book isn't really about memorising moves.
