Nevertheless, I've found my rating rise from somewhere around 1200 to just over 1500 in the reading of these pages. Alekhines subtle strategy involves maneuvers which encompass the entire chessboard as a battlefield.

So, I would like to know what has been your experience with this book if you have read it, or your story and opinion with chess books in general, or commentary about your own experiences on learning the game.Please contact us in advance for advice on best procedure, as in certain circumstances we are able to send our courier to collect items. Even if you know what the symbols mean and even if you are actively following every move on a material chessboard, reading and comprehending statements like 'If (a long line of symbols), then (again a litany of symbols)' can get real frustrating real quick.

I am learning a lot from this book and it really has increased my joy and skill of the game - even though I have just been beaten soundly by a 12-year-old boy. As a result, the games are absorbing and the lessons learned (at least in my case) tend to stick with the player.

My goal in reading books like this is to incorporate into my subconscious as many master game patterns as possible: moves humans make, explanations humans give. Modern chess is a little bit different and to understand why GMs break the rules could be interesting.I was thinking on studiying a basic ending book after this one, I find it more attractive than tactics. Perhaps it isn't as timeless as it once appeared to me, but it should prove useful to any aspiring player wanting to better understand how to develop logical plans, moves, and thought processes in chess.
