Book Description

If you have just picked up this book, the chances are that you are the proud owner of a piece of chess software. Whether this is the latest release of a sophisticated database package or a playing program that came free with a magazine, then this book will help you make the most of it.

Even basic chess software packages now usually have numerous interesting features and working out how to use these effectively is no easy task. Many players simply use a playing program to practice against and a database program just for storing and replaying games. Yet there is much more that can be achieved with such packages and this book will show you how the experts do it.

With this book you can:

  • learn powerful techniques for organizing and managing your chess data
  • discover proven, effective methods to study the middlegame and endgame
  • learn how to most effectively harness the power of a chess engine
  • efficiently analyze your own strengths and weaknesses

  • SHOPWORN - Samisch King's Indian Uncovered
    The Samisch King's Indian continues to be one of the fiercely contested openings in chess. White's play is based around an extremely solid centre, and there's the very real possibility of launching a direct attack against the black king; a welcome change because often it is Black who goes gunning for checkmate in the King's Indian. But the Samisch is flexible too; if White wishes he can instead try to strangle Black with his obvious space advantage. It's these features that have made the Samisch such a popular weapon for White both at club level and with the world's elite. World Champions Botvinnik, Tal, Petrosian, Spassky, Karpov, Kasparov and Kramnik have all utilized the Samisch at one time or another, a testimony to the strong reputation of this opening.
