    Catalog Code: E-B0120EM

    Excelling at Combinational Play: Learn to Identify and Exploit Tactical Chances by Jacob Aagaard, 239pp. (Everyman 2004) Being able to solve puzzles and combinations is one of the principal components of a successful chess player. But how can one improve on such an important skill? How can one acquire combinational vision? The answer lies within the pages of this book! Experienced chess writer Jacob Aagaard explains how tactical intuition and ability develops and uses pattern recognition to improve the reader's tactical ammunition.

    EBOOK - Excelling at Chess Calculation
    Capitalizing on Tactical Chances
    Catalog Code: E-B0119EM

    There are many differing opinions amongst the top players in the world of chess, but there is one thing upon which World Champions, Grandmasters and other experts all agree: the art of chess calculation is the absolute key to the success of a player. Master this discipline and you can surely expect your results to improve dramatically. Jacob Aagaard tackles the 'art of chess calculation', unravelling its many secrets and arming the reader with the necessary tools to be able to calculate effectively at the chessboard.

    EBOOK - Excelling at Chess Calculation

    EBOOK - Excelling at Technical Chess
    Learn to Identify and Exploit Small Advantages
    Catalog Code: E-B0121EM

    The implication from the author is that the task of converting a typically winning position into a full point or converting a drawing position into half-a-point is relatively straightforward. However, as all of us practical players realise, it's not always a simple as this, and many hard-earned points are wasted through 'a lack of technique'. In this valuable book, Jacob Aagaard aims to solve this perennial problem. He arms the reader with several endgame weapons that every strong technical player has in his toolbox.

    EBOOK - Excelling at Technical Chess

    EBOOK - Excelling at Positional Chess
    Catalog Code: E-B0118EM

    Positional chess remains a mystery to many and yet an understanding of the finer points of the game so often makes the difference between two equally matched players. Improve your positional play and you will see chess in a totally new dimension! In this unique book, International Master Jacob Aagaard selects many original examples of positional chess, the creme de la creme of those that he uses for training and study.

    EBOOK - Excelling at Positional Chess

    EBOOK - Excelling at Chess
    Catalog Code: E-B0117EM

    Some players become good at chess, some very good, while others excel at the game. Jacob Aagaard identifies the key factors that separate the very strong players from the rest. He includes chapters on when to calculate, how to evaluate positions, how to study theory, how to study the endgame and when to force the position.

    EBOOK - Excelling at Chess

    EBOOK - Meeting 1. d4
    Catalog Code: E-B0064EM
