About this deal

F2/7 pawn particularly vulnerable because protected only by king, compare to d2/7 and e2/7 each defended by 3 pieces. I think, without being sure, when I read in my book, Silman-The Amateurs Mind I only move the mainlines, but reading all.

Unlike casual literature, playing through a sequence of positions in front of a chessboard takes a kind of 3D concentration. Sicilian defense (answering E4 with C5 offers counterattacking play especially on opponent too hellbent on kingside attack).I first came across this book at an early stage in my chess career, and I believe that it helped form my understanding of what chess mastery is all about. 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. For those who didn't grow up in the era of descriptive notation, Irving Chernev wrote books that mostly appealed to the mainstream player. Why endgames are so poignant - When material advantage, force a mutual destruction of pieces, endings with only pawns are easiest to win.

Sometimes, I wish he spoke a little more about alternatives - because in my mind, I could see alternative moves that I thought would work really well but it wasn't explained why they weren't played. Some of the lines he explores definitely were over my head (wouldn't have seen that 5-move trap) but that's OK. I was thinking on studiying a basic ending book after this one, I find it more attractive than tactics.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. When describing a move similar to one previously described, most books do not repeat the analysis previously given. This is the first book that a chess player should read after learning the basics - that is, how the pieces move, basic checkmating patterns, and the tactical building blocks such as forks, pins, and skewers. I guess Euwe's books have a better quality in the analysis, as Euwe was a very strong player (World Champion). Certainly you shouldn't focus on the footnotes more so than the main article, and the same for chess.

Experiencing openings and positions in the heat of battle is far more illustrative in play than theory. If you are a superhuman by any chance who has a super eidetic memory and can follow every move in your mind's eye, this comment is not for you). Pude ler aplicando as partidas que o livro fornece e verificando realmente as explicações O autor explana com qualidade cada lance para cada partida, dando ao leitor as condições para se colocar no lugar do mestre, enquanto realiza as motivações para as variadas hipóteses já que podem existir diversas opções para os lances dependendo do jogador.Batsford converted the descriptive notation in the original to algebraic and published their updated edition in 1998. I'm not sure why I read this book, but I bought it a few years ago for some reason (probably mentioned by some Youtuber) and so I finally finished reading it. I knew this heuristic, but after seeing it in action several times I feel I understand a little better. Notes on versions:WARNING make sure you get the correct edition as there are older editions which have the Descriptive (English) Notation. If one might wonder if this book is difficult to read, one does not need to worry since this book is simply written and is packed with information that in a short time one will see by how he plays others that he has improved quickly.
