Chess Strategy in Action
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungJohn Watson extends the theory presented to enormous acclaim in Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy and illustrates it with many practical examples by modern players such as Kasparov, Anand, Kramnik, Ivanchuk, Shirov and Morozevich. In Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy, Watson broke new ground by describing the developments in chess strategy since the time of Nimzowitsch. He explained how modern players are more willing than their predecessors to favor dynamic considerations over static ones, and how a 'rule-independent' approach has greatly enriched chess. The best evidence of the effectiveness of this dynamic approach to chess is shown by the dominant results of Garry Kasparov, and the rise of a new generation of supergrandmasters who play uncompromising and unrelentingly imaginative chess. Those who enjoyed Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy will welcome the clarification of important concepts. Chess Strategy in Action can also be read on its own as an outstanding collection of modern games with thoughtful and enlightening annotations.
