Podejmowanie technicznych decyzji w szachach - Boris Gelfand
  • Nowość

Podejmowanie technicznych decyzji w szachach - Boris Gelfand (K-6100)

Wicemistrz Świata 2012 kontynuuje swoją historię, rozpoczętą w bestsellery „Podejmowanie decyzji pozycyjnych w szachach” („Książka roku” wg. Angielskiej Federacji Szachowej) oraz „Dynamiczne podejmowanie decyzji w szachach”. Nowa książka omawia, jak podejmować decyzje w zakończeniach i na stanowiskach, w których jedna ze stron ma lepszą strukturę pionka lub przewagę materialną. Studiowanie techniki gry jednego z czołowych arcymistrzów na świecie na złożone elementy szachów, które wielu uważa za niejasne. Koncepcje takie jak „Strefa jednego błędu” z pewnością przyjdą wielu jako objawienie.

"Gelfand bardzo dobrze i bardzo uczciwie wyjaśnia, jakie decyzje był w stanie obliczyć i jakie decyzje musiał podjąć na podstawie ogólnego rozumowania i jak to zrobił. Zaowocowało to książką, którą kocham. Myślę, że szachista o dowolnej sile może znaleźć tu wiele przydatnych rzeczy”

(arcymistrz Matthew Sadler - recenzent nowości w literaturze szachowej w czasopiśmie „New In Chess”).

Magnus Carlsen's Middlegame Evolution - Ivan Sokolov (K-6090)

Magnus Carlsen’s mastery of the middlegame is astonishing, even by the standards of World Champions. But how did this power develop, and what can the rest of us learn from it? To explain the mysteries requires another elite grandmaster, and Ivan Sokolov is perfectly qualified for this role.

Key Concepts of Chess - Część 1 - The Hedgehog - Herman Grooten (K-6061)

International master Herman Grooten has over 40 years of experience as a professional chess trainer. Countless of his pupils became strong chess players. The best known of these are the grandmasters Loek van Wely, Robin Swinkels, Wouter Spoelman, Dennis de Vreugt, Jan Werle, Twan Burg and Benjamin Bok.

In the field of journalism, he earned his spurs with chess columns in the newspapers Trouw and Het Eindhovens Dagblad. Since 2020 he has been co-owner of the popular Schaaksite.nl for which he has been writing articles for over ten years. As an author, he wrote several books of which the 2009 publication "Chess Strategy for Club Players" was awarded "Book of the Year" on Chesscafe.com.

Meanwhile, in his series "Understand before Moving " he has published several volumes that were received with great enthusiasm, both in Dutch and English.

This is the first volume of the new series "Key Concepts of Chess". The idea is to deal with middlegames in which a certain structure or essential theme becomes central. The idea of starting this series is in line with the "Understand before Moving" series because the aim, is to improve the understanding of club chess players. According to the author, playing an opening should be 'hung up' on stereotypical ideas and concepts belonging to this structure. The thorough exploration of middlegame structures is beyond the scope of opening books, hence it makes more sense to expose it in this complementary series.

In this first volume, the "Hedgehog System" is discussed in detail. Apart from being part of the author's repertoire, this typical set-up deserves to be widely highlighted. Although in the second part of the trilogy on the Sicilian, the Hedgehog has already made its appearance, in this book the seemingly fragile, but oh so treacherous creature can reconsider its spines in an extensive way.

Attacking Strategies for Club Players - Michael Prusikin (K-6058)

How to Create a Deadly Attack on the Enemy King

Attacking your opponent’s king is not just a shortcut to victory, it’s also one of the most enjoyable and gratifying experiences in chess. If you want to win more games you should become a better attacker. Studying typical attacking motifs and ideas easily brings dividends while you are having a good time.

Michael Prusikin presents the prerequisites and the rules for a King attack in a lucid and attractive manner. In 15 thematic chapters he teaches you how to assess the nature of the position, identify the appropriate offensive patterns, find the preliminary moves and conduct your attack in a clear and effective way.

Battering rams, obstructive sacrifices, pawn storms, striking at the castled position, sacrificing a knight on f5, Prusikin demonstrates the most important patterns of attack with lots of clear and well chosen examples.

Next, Prusikin tests your newly acquired insights and your attacking intuition with exercises covering all the themes and motifs. You will find that studying Attacking Strategies for Club Players is both entertaining and rewarding.

Michael Prusikin is an International Grandmaster and a FIDE Senior Trainer from Germany. In 2009 he was the co-winner of the German Championship. Several times he has been voted German Chess Trainer of the Year. He writes the tactics column in the German magazine SCHACH.

“The vast majority of attacking patterns are presented with strikingly clear logic. Any reader who studies this book, almost irrespective of their playing strength, will come away with new ideas for conducting an attack on the king in particular and about chess understanding in general."

Alexander Khalifman, former FIDE World Champion

The Magnus Method - Emmanuel Neiman (K-6051)

The Singular Skills of the World’s Strongest Chess Player Uncovered and Explained

What is it that makes Magnus Carlsen the strongest chess player in the world? Why do Carlsen’s opponents, the best players around, fail to see his moves coming? Moves that, when you replay his games, look natural and self-evident?

Emmanuel Neiman has been studying Carlsen’s games and style of play for many years. His findings will surprise, delight and educate every player, regardless of their level. He explains a key element in the World Champion’s play: instead of the ‘absolute’ best move he often plays the move that is likely to give him the better chances.

Defensive Tools - Tadej Sakelsek, Marko Tratar (K-6031)

"We talk a lot about defence in chess but rarely try to break this major notion down into elements that constitute it and, importantly, that we can systematically learn. This book does exactly that. It is suitable for players of all levels aiming to improve their game. It may be especially appropriate for coaches because of its systematized character."

Poznaj po pierwszym spojrzeniu. Typowe plany gry środkowej. Księga druga (K-5989)

Чемпион мира Магнус Карлсен, отвечая на вопрос о методах совершенствования юных шахматистов, особо подчеркнул: «Одним из наиболее важных умений является распознавание образов: способность увидеть типичные темы и шаблоны на доске, характерные особенности позиции и вытекающие из этого последствия». Развитию именно этих навыков и умений посвящена эта книга: она наглядно показывает, какой именно «образ» (шаблон, типичный маневр, план) нужно распознать в позиции, чтобы избрать правильный план. Речь идет именно о стратегических приемах, а не о тактических, вроде типичных матовых атак.

Первая книга из серии «Узнай с первого взгляда» представляла собой «стратегический ликбез» для не слишком искушенных шахматистов. Во второй известный голландский тренер представляет еще 40 «лайфхаков» от ведущих гроссмейстеров и мастеров. Каждая из 40 глав содержит, как минимум, по 6-8 примеров на конкретный шаблон. Задания для самостоятельного решения помогут лучше усвоить материал. После изучения книги представленные в ней типичные планы, маневры и связанные с ними идеи прочно сохранятся в вашей памяти и позволят добиться высоких результатов в турнирных баталиях.

U Cannot Be Serious: Avant-Garde Strategy in Chess - G. Welling, M. Basman (K-5980)

This book is written with the intention to introduce the reader to the creative chess ideas of Michael Basman. He gave up more intense regular tournament chess around the turn of the millennium, to concentrate his energy on the development of school chess. And that is what he is mainly known for in recent times, as the motor who made the UK Chess Challenge blossom. Nowadays the yearly nation-wide school competition still attracts around 40,000 children, and that is not even the record. […]

Understanding Before Moving 3.2 – Sicilian Structures - Herman Grooten (K-5976)

The first volume dealt with the Najdorf and Scheveningen variations, and it is now time to pay attention to three other extremely popular systems: the Taimanov, Kan and Richter-Rauzer variations. After careful consideration within the Thinkers Publishing team, we decided that it made sense to group these variations together. In particular, the first two are closely related and share the feature that, in both cases, Black plays …e7-e6 and …a7-a6 at an early stage. They typically have the idea of retaining more options for their king’s bishop by postponing …d7-d6 (or even omitting it entirely.) The bishop may go to b4 or c5 in different lines.

Also, in this edition of the Encyclopaedia we kept the standard division of all the themes and tactical motifs into 10 topics, while all the positions are graded in three levels according to playing strength – basic, intermediate and advanced.

Niedocenienie kontrgry przeciwnika. Gra środkowa - Aleksander Galkin, Anastazja Trawkina (K-5911)

Вниманию читателей предлагается вторая и заключительная книга из серии «Недооценка контригры соперника». На этот раз она посвящена миттельшпилю. Авторы подобрали 111 учебных примеров из партий современных гроссмейстеров, сыгранных исключительно в 2019 году.

По статистке большинство партий заканчивается уже в миттельшпиле. Поэтому крайне важно уметь хорошо разыгрывать именно эту стадию шахматной партии. Авторы постарались таким образом систематизировать материал, разбив его на соответствующие главы, чтобы работа над книгой дала максимально продуктивный результат, появлялись новые знания и вырабатывались профессиональные навыки правильного разыгрывания миттельшпиля.

Книга предназначена для тренеров, шахматистов-разрядников и широкого круга любителей шахмат.

How to swindle in chess - Andrew Soltis (K-5863)

A book by stalwart chess writer on an aspect of chess that is quite common, but little is written about, swindling in chess. In chess, a swindle is a ruse by which a player in a losing position tricks his opponent, and thereby achieves a win or draw instead of the expected loss. Renown chess writers Horowitz and Reinfeld observe that swindles, "though ignored in virtually all chess books", "play an enormously important role in over-the-board chess, and decide the fate of countless games".

Andrew Soltis, American chess journalist, says swindles are not accidental or a matter of luck. Swindling is a skill. But there has been almost nothing written about how to do it, how to make yourself lucky in chess. Swindling means setting traps that exploit an opponent’s over-confidence. It means choosing the move that has the greatest chance of winning, rather than the move that has the least chance of losing.

Soltis’ new proposal will explain to players of all levels how to do just that with plenty of examples to explain along the way.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

International Grandmaster Andrew Soltis is chess correspondent for the New York Post and a very popular chess writer. He is the author of many books including What it Takes to Become a Chess Master, Studying Chess Made Easy and David Vs Goliath Chess.
