BK2043 Charles Hertan - Forcing Chess Moves

BK2043 Charles Hertan - Forcing Chess Moves


Why is it that the human brain so often refuses to consider winning chess tactics? Every chess fan marvels at the wonderful combinations with which famous masters win games. How do they find those fantastic moves? Do they have a special vision? And why do computers outwit us tactically? This rich book on chess tactics proposes a revolutionary method for finding winning moves. Charles Hertan has made an astonishing discovery: the failure to consider key moves is often due to human bias. Your brain tends to disregard many winning moves because they are counter-intuitive or look unnatural. We can no longer deny it, computers outdo us humans when it comes to tactical vision and brute force calculation. So why not learn from them? Charles Hertans radically different approach is: use COMPUTER EYES and always look for the most forcing move first! By studying forcing sequences according to Hertans method you will: - develop analytical precision - improve your tactical vision - overcome human bias and staleness - enjoy the calculation of difficult positions Charles Hertan is a FIDE master from Massachusetts with several decades of experience as a chess coach. Instead of rehashing the usual classic examples he has unearthed hundreds of instructive combinations which appear here for the first time in print. Win more games by recognizing moves that matter! With a foreword by three-time US chess champion Joel Benjamin, a member of the Deep Blue Computer team that defeated world champion Garry Kasparov in 1997. READ MORE...

BK2032 Anatoly Kuznetsov - Brilliant Chess Studies

BK2032 Anatoly Kuznetsov - Brilliant Chess Studies


This book offers 450 endgame studies covering a span of 160 years from 1837 to 1997. The author, Anatoly Kuznetsov (1932-2000), was a well-known composer in his own right, and a number of his studies are also included. The endgame study in Russia has followed two schools of thought. On the one hand we have the positional and analytical school with composers like Kasparian and Nadareishvili as its main exponents. On the other hand we have the romantic school with votaries like Korolkov, Mitrofanov and Pogosyants. The work of the new generation of composers like Kralin, Bazlov and Pervakov, however, is not easy to label and categorize as their studies show a synthesis of both styles. In their case imagination is tempered by realism. READ MORE...

BK2048 Nunn - John Nunns Chess Puzzle Book

BK2048 Nunn - John Nunns Chess Puzzle Book


Most chess puzzle books put you in an artificial situation: you are told a combination exists, what the theme is and what you are required to achieve. This one is different. In a real game, a player may sometimes need to find a combination. On the other hand he may have to reject a tactical idea and simply find a good positional move. His task is to find the right move, whatever it may be. The 300 puzzles in this book put you precisely in that situation. Spectacular ideas abound in these positions, but it is for you to decide whether to go in for them, or whether you would be falling into a trap. If you need them, there are hints to help you on your way. The book ends with a series of tests to measure your skills against those of other players. For this new edition, John Nunn, a top-class grandmaster and a solving world champion, has added 50 new puzzles (with hints and detailed solutions) to test your skills to the full. For ease of following, extra diagrams have been added to the solutions throughout. Overall the book is 60 per cent bigger than the first edition. READ MORE...
