Book Description

Winning starts with planning before the game, teaches legendary chess trainer Vladimir Tukmakov. He describes how planning has become a systematic process, how methodical preparation works, and which critical steps you have to take.

The role of the computer in preparing for a game has grown tremendously, and Modern Chess Preparation explains how it is used by top players. But you will also learn the limitations on the use of chess engines and databases, and how disastrous it can be to overly rely on them.

With powerful anecdotes and many instructive high-level games, Tukmakov explains how you can organize your homework, focus your efforts, and arrive at a viable game plan.
