Produktinformationen "Smith: Modern Chess Analysis"

Techniques that have revolutionized chess analysis.

Chess analysis is nearly as old as the game itself, with many of the pioneering works by the giants of chess history being devoted to the analysis of positions, openings and endings.
Personal computers and powerful chess software are having a profound effect on chess analysis and theory - most grandmasters use them extensively.
However, this book does far more than explain methods for computer-assisted analysis.

Readers will develop a deeper understanding of the strengths and limitations of the human mind, and a greater understanding of many areas of chess while working through the examples that Robin Smith presents.

The many topics in this wide-ranging book include:

  • Schematic thinking
  • Dynamic play vs quiet manoeuvring
  • Fortresses
  • King Hunts and 'King Drift'
  • The Problem of Exchanging
  • Interactive Analysis

Sokolov: Chess Middlegame Strategies Vol. 1
 After his outstanding book from 2008, 'Winning Chess Middlegames', Grandmaster Ivan Sokolov takes us a step further into his dungeon of middlegame skills. In his well known style, Sokolov focuses on the different aspects of the complex middlegame. As usual Ivan breaks new ground and provides us with a variety of instructive examples. Many were extracted from the very recent top level tournament practice. Volume 2 will be published later in early 2018. Ivan Sokolov was born in Bosnia in 1968. He was and still is one of the most flamboyant attacking players of his time, reaching several times, over a period of 13 years, the top 12 spot in the FIDE ranking. He notably has beaten world chess champions like Smyslov, Kasparov, Kramnik, Anand and Topalov. We remember him winning most recent the World Open in Philadelphia 2012 and the gold medal for best performance at the "European Teams" in Warsaw 2013. He is a successful writer with bestsellers as "Winning Chess Middlegames", "The Ruy Lopez Revisited", "The Strategic Nimzo-Indian" and "Sacrifice and Initiative". His colums in the last Chess Informants are also widely appraised. This is his second book for Thinkers Publishing after he published his biography "Ivans´s Chess Journey". He is currently beeing employed in Iran as a national team coach. 228 Seiten, kartoniert, Verlag Thinkers Publishing
