  • How Ulf Beats Black by Cyrus Lakdawala

How Ulf Beats Black is much more than just a chess opening manual. It doubles as a practical guide to positional technique that will improve your endgame skills as well. This repertoire is not based on forcing variations but on understanding the underlying principles and techniques. As a result your opponent will not be able to surprise you because you forgot to check recent novelties. The final chapter 'What did Ulf play?' presents exercises to test your understanding.

  • Chess for Hawks by Cyrus Lakdawala
    Chess for Hawks (English, Paperback) Cyrus Lakdawala

    Are you a dove or a hawk? Is your natural instinct at the chessboard for caution and strategy or do you crave adventure and confrontation? As a 10-year-old boy, Cyrus Lakdawala realized to his horror that he was a dove. Since then, he has devoted an important part of his efforts as a player to trying to resist his natural tendency to over-solidify positions and avoid complications.Chess for Hawks is the fascinating and often hilarious story of Lakdawala's struggle to release his inner hawk. It is also a highly instructional guide that will make you think about questions you may not have thought about before: why do you miss opportunities to win a won game?, does deliberately breaking a rule come easy to you?, how good are you at ignoring a threat?, and at refusing a draw offer?, are you able to distinguish between patience and apathy?, do you hate to trade queens?, do you find it difficult to weaken your structure in exchange for initiative or attack?, do you like games with opposing wing castling? and do you know when to trade in initiative for material?Cyrus Lakdawala does something no other chess writer has done before: he makes you reflect deeply about your style of play and its consequences. After reading Chess for Hawks you will be a stronger player because you have mastered an essential but neglected skill: you will know how to obey the position's requirements instead of your natural inclination.
