    Platonov's Chess Academy
    Using Soviet-Era Methods to Improve 21st-Century Openings
    Catalog Code: B0020LV


    Publisher: CIRC
    Author: Lev Alburt and Sam Palatnik
    Year of Publication: 2012 Pages: 176
    Notation Type: Figurine (FAN)


    Book Description Two of the most renowned chess trainers in the world, introduce and explain the revolutionary ideas of their old friend and mentor, Igor Platonov. Platonov was one of the most profound thinkers and theoreticians in the old Soviet Union, which held a grip on the world chess championship for decades, as the title passed from one of its stars to another. For intermediate players to grandmasters, Platonov's visionary insights, examined and explained here for the first time, provide you with the keys to understanding the foundational concepts of the game, strengthening your chess understanding and giving you effective methods to help you find the most powerful moves in the game. About the Author(s) International Grandmaster Lev Alburt, three-time U.S. champion and former European champion, is one of the most sought-after chess teachers in the world.
