    How to Choose a Chess Move
    There are more than 30 moves you can choose from a typical chess position, yet Masters regularly manage to select the best moves and they do it faster, more confidently and with less calculation than other players. This is because Masters have shortcuts that enable them to think more efficiently. This instructive and practical guide explains these techniques, including: Using specific cues to identify good moves - Streamlining analysis of the consequences of moves - Using both objective and highly subjective criteria to find the right move from any position.

    Rook vs. 2 Minor Pieces
    Many chess players shy away from positions with material imbalances, because they feel insecure in the face of their unclear nature. Traditional chess teaching does not spend much time on understanding such imbalances, but in this original book Esben Lund discusses one of the most common imbalances, where one player has a rook, and the other two minor pieces.

    Modern Chess Analysis
    Chess analysis is nearly as old as the game itself, with many of the pioneering works by the giants of chess history being devoted to the analysis of positions, openings and endings. Personal computers and powerful chess software are having a profound effect on chess analysis and theory - most grandmasters use them extensively. However, this book does far more than explain methods for computer-assisted analysis. Readers will develop a deeper understanding of the strengths and limitations of the human mind, and a greater understanding of many areas of chess while working through the examples that Robin Smith presents.

    How to Play Dynamic Chess
    Chess is fundamentally a dynamic game. Each move changes the situation and the possibilities for both sides. No piece is ever identically as valuable as any other, and their scope changes from move to move. The current generation of supergrandmasters plays unrelentingly dynamic chess, but a great deal of chess literature still deals with chess as if it were a predominantly static game. Much traditional chess teaching is based around rules of thumb that might work well 'on average' or in 'typical' situations, but these rules may not equip players for the specific and sometimes exceptional situations that they face in their games.

Kongsted provides practical advice on how to use computers in all these ways and more.

    Publisher: Gambit
    Author: John Nunn
    Year of Publication: 2008 Pages: 240
    Notation Type: Figurine (FN)


    Book Description John Nunn is one of the most highly regarded chess writers in the world. He has carefully selected thirty modern games to help the reader understand the most important aspects of chess and to illustrate modern chess principles in action. Virtually every move is explained using words that everyone can understand. Jargon is avoided as far as possible. Almost all the examples are taken from the 1990s and show how key ideas are handled by the grandmasters of today. The emphasis is on general principles that readers will be able to use in their own games, and detailed analysis is only given where it is necessary. Each game contains many lessons, but to guide the reader through the most important ideas in each phase of the game, the thirty games are grouped thematically into those highlighting opening, middlegame and endgame themes. About the Author(s) John Nunn is a grandmaster from England. He has won four individual gold medals and three team silver medals at Chess Olympiads. In the Chess World Cup of 1988/9, he finished sixth overall, ahead of several former World Champions. He is arguably the most highly acclaimed chess writer in the world, with two of his books receiving the prestigious British Chess Federation Book of the Year Award.
