How to Play the the Dilworth Attack

Product Code: B0135IS

img

Book Description

The Dilworth Attack is one of the most interesting lines in the Ruy Lopez. Black gives up two pieces in return for a rook and two pawns, with excellent attacking prospects. In most cases, White weathers the storm but must then play a complicated endgame. This works to Black's advantage, since Black is more likely to be familiar with the typical endgame structures and strategies. The Dilworth continues to be seen at the highest levels of chess, especially in the hands of Artur Yusupov.

In this, the first ever monograph devoted to the line, noted author Eric Schiller explains all of the critical ideas in the opening and endgame, and provides many examples of each from tournament play. With this weapon in your arsenal for Black, the Spanish Inquisition can prove to be a most unpleasant experience for White!

    Publisher: ISHI Press
    Author: Ludek Pachman
    Year of Publication: 2012 (Reprint) Pages: 185
    Notation Type: Descriptive (DN)


    Book Description Continuing his major work on strategy and tactics in modern chess, the internationalyl renowned Grandmaster, Ludek Pachman, now turns his attention to the play of the pawns and the achievement of control of the center squares. Though the pawns are the weakest pieces in chess, their importance in determining the character of the attack (and defense) and the development of strategic play cannot be underestimated. Pawns are essential to the protection of important squares and pieces. They are the best means of blockading enemy pawns and when correctly deployed, their advance can open vital files and diagonals, thereby creating weaknesses in the opposite position. Despite its limited power, the pawn has one special advantage over other pieces in that it can be promoted when it reaches the eighth rank; a successful pawn advance can completely change the balance of power and the outcome of a game. Pawns have aptly been described as "the soul of chess." Vital of chess mastery is a basic understanding of the importance of control of the center squares. The effectiveness of the pieces depend upon the strength of their position and center control creates a vital sapatial superiority. The effective play of the pawns and center control have been touched upon on other works, but seldom with the insight and lucidity revealed in this second volume of Pachman's masterwork.
