ABOUT

One of the most exciting moments in preparing Chess Informant is when we receive the annotated game by Garry Kasparov. Will it be a famous game from recent practice or a little-known gem? How did he choose it? Which games were among his candidates? So many questions, but only one answer in "Garry's Choice." From Kasparov, you can expect only the unexpected!

As with his previous column in Chess Informant 113, you will never guess his chosen game! As a hint, I will say that the game was an opportunity for Garry to showcase his beloved King's Indian Defense. These deep and interesting annotations, by the highest possible authority, are an unforgettable lesson and above all a true revelation of extraordinary chess art.

    What is Magnus Carlsen's secret? How did an already world-class player succeed in reaching this unprecedented level where he was regularly beating the world's strongest grandmasters? In this book, International Master Colin Crouch provides answers to these questions. Crouch studies Carlsen's progress in recent years and demonstrates how he learned lessons from previous setbacks, turned weaknesses into strengths, losses into draws, and draws into wins. By doing so Carlsen was able to elevate his play to a stratospheric level, but any aspiring chess player can use similar methods to improve their game.

    Author: Mihai Suba
    Year of Publication: 2012 Pages: 376
    Notation Type: Figurine (FAN)


    Book Description In chess, sacrificing material is the most dramatic way to try to seize the advantage. Most sacrifices have a forcing aim in mind, but most profound of all are positional sacrifices where the end is impossible to foresee and thus fine judgment and understanding are required. Such sacrifices are usually a mystery to average players, but acclaimed author and chess grandmaster Mihai Suba explains the secrets of this technique in his characteristically bold and humorous style. About the Author(s) Mihai Suba is a Romanian grandmaster whose previous book, Dynamic Chess Strategy, was highly acclaimed by the critics and won the BCF Book of the Year prize.

  • SHOPWORN - Creative Chess
    Most chess books aim to guide and instruct by offering principles, rules, schemes and theories. Creative Chess, on the other hand, has a quite different and original approach. It firmly maintains that every chessplayer, whether amateur or master, is capable of creating something new in chess. After a discussion of the characteristics and processes of creativity, 10 central concepts, such as unusual positioning and functioning of pieces, alertness to subtle differences, absurd moves, and flexibility, are presented with a wealth of truly amazing examples to encourage the reader to broaden the horizons of his chess thinking.
