About this deal

It is notable, for example, that by far the most popular opening represented is the Queen's Gambit Declined; by contrast, today's favorite Sicilian Defense is found in just one game. In his kingside attack section, which features some nice games the 'culprit', and eventual loser, often moves his rook's pawn forward a square. The open games in the first half are very entertaining, but the second half contains too many Queen Gambits. I generally look at side-variations only if a) the author says straight away this is important, or b) if I'm curious about a particular move and a side-variation covers it. Nevertheless, I've found my rating rise from somewhere around 1200 to just over 1500 in the reading of these pages.

La novità (di un libro di 50 anni fa) è che spiega con una chiarezza esemplare, senza disperdersi nell'analisi di mille varianti possibili, ma facendo entrare davvero nella logica del gioco. Does a good job of explaining the ideas behind moves (especially opening moves) in easy to understand language. Blockade with pawns, then start getting king towards center for its unexcelled power among pawns as board empties in the endgame. and remember pay attention to every move you make [ attack and suffocate your opponent - but don't make them cry ] and whatever the book tells you follow that and i guaranty you'll see improvement fast. I remember someone pointing out that the era the games are from makes them easier to umderstand than some more modern games.Almost every game had two points where the author explained that castling gets the king to safer position while freeing a rook for action. For those who didn't grow up in the era of descriptive notation, Irving Chernev wrote books that mostly appealed to the mainstream player. The author can better relate to the reader and provide them the sort of insight that may be lost on stronger players. Nf3 Nc6) and unfortunately I bought it based on a lot of these reviews(One of which is backed up by a photo of the wrong edition! I am not really sure what “the” correct way is, but what I do is to look up the game in my database on go through the game two or maybe three times pretty fast.

Aready black will be feeling some pressure, and you can try bringing a knight and/or rook into the attack from there.Otherwise, this book imparts a fantastic vision such that novices should see their strategic vision begin to develop upon reading it. I learned how to play from my mom as a kid, watched a few YouTube videos as an adult, and figured I could pick it up as I went along. There is just one Queen's Indian and one Nimzo-Indian included; there are no games featuring the popular King's Indian, Grunfeld, or Benoni Defenses.

Sicilian defense (answering E4 with C5 offers counterattacking play especially on opponent too hellbent on kingside attack).

So, I would like to know what has been your experience with this book if you have read it, or your story and opinion with chess books in general, or commentary about your own experiences on learning the game. In short, it's a good read, with 33 games from Chernev's time or before (remember this book was written in the 50s). He also throws in humor every so often to keep the interest of the reader, because chess can quickly turn into a boring game if treated dryly. I was thinking on studiying a basic ending book after this one, I find it more attractive than tactics.

Zwischenzug, in-between-move, where a ranging-piece is able to move fully across the board but stops somewhere in between. Overall, sure, it isn't a perfect book in some aspects, but as a tool to teach the basic principles of the game and how to play in general, what the plans are, it's a great book. A ideia é genial: "veja aqui os movimentos e A LÓGICA POR TRÁS DOS MOVIMENTOS de partidas que selecionamos".

The author of this book has explained some 33 important games played by master Chess players, with move-by-move commentary on why each move is good or bad, and how important various moves are as the game develops. I started doing the things he said, particularly the things he said over and over, and I started winning games.
