About this deal

Just by repeating the basic principles one already memorizes and adapts them easily and I caught myself looking at a position on the chess board in a different way. Chernev's book presents a number of games in a fantastic format - each move is explained, even if it's the 20th time you've seen 1. With that proviso, I would recommend it heartily to anyone just starting to explore the game, and therefore, to scholastic chess teachers as well. In some situations a pawn in front of castled king gets moved and he's like "what a terrible move, don't violate the king's safety! He was born in Pryluky in the Russian Empire and is a national master-strength player and devoted to chess.

As the subtitle says, the explanation really is move by move, meaning each move is followed by a solid paragraph of explanation and thought.That makes it easier to reset the position back to the game continuation, when you have reached the end of a hypothetical variation. I checked to see how an engine felt about h3 in that particular position and the engine is like "yeah h3 is best.

That's not too much of a problem when it comes to the tactics, because tactics never go out of fashion. I've learned a great deal from both what Irving Chernev has said but also through the repetition of following his advice and mimicking the games.One of the first books I owned, Chernev's THE FIRESIDE BOOK OF CHESS guided me through the many facets of chess during my formative years. GAME 4, KING'S GAMBIT DECLINED, 1891, was one of eight games Blackburne played simultaneously, blindfolded! Alekhines subtle strategy involves maneuvers which encompass the entire chessboard as a battlefield.
