    Invisible Chess Moves

    Discover Your Blind Spots and Stop Overlooking Simple Wins

    Product Code: B0105NIC

    Description

    Book Description

    Every chess player knows that some moves are harder to see than others. Why is it that, frequently, uncomplicated wins simply do not enter your mind?

    Even strong grandmasters suffer from blind spots that obscure some of the best ideas during a game. What is more: often both players fail to see the opportunity that is right in front of their eyes.

    Neiman and Afek have researched this problem and discovered that there are actually identifiable reasons why your brain discards certain ideas.

    In this book they demonstrate different categories of hard-to-see chess moves and clearly explain the psychological, positional and geometric factors which cloud the chess player's brain.

    Invisible Chess Moves, with its many unique examples, instructive explanations and illuminative tests, will teach you how to discover your blind spots and see the moves which remain invisible for others.

    Your results at the board will improve dramatically because your brain will stop blocking winning ideas.

    • How to Calculate Chess Tactics
      A Revealing Look at the Nuts and Bolts of Chess Thought Catalog Code: B0080GB
      Thinking methods are at the heart of the chess struggle, yet most players devote little conscious effort to improving their calculating ability. Much of the previous literature on the subject has presented idealized models that have limited relevance to the hurly-burly of practical chess, or else provide little more than ad hoc suggestions. Here, experienced trainer Valeri Beim strikes a balance by explaining how to use intuition and logic together to solve tactical problems in a methodical way. He also offers advice on when it is best to calculate 'like a machine', and when it is better to rely on intuitive assessment.
