This compendium is for chess training at all levels, raises topics for discussion, and gets chess teachers at local schools to learn from top coaches, as well as the other way around. With ready-to-use teaching exercises.

  • 50 Ways to Win at Chess by Steve Giddins
    50 Ways to Win at Chess (English, Paperback) Steve Giddins

    In a sequel to the hugely successful 50 Essential Chess Lessons, Steve Giddins now presents 50 games that each illustrate an important winning method. This engaging and highly readable book is a painless way to build your personal arsenal of techniques and ideas. The games are mostly from the modern era, but with a few classic examples chosen to show key themes in as clear a way as possible. In these cases, the defender may have never seen the critical idea before, and fails to react appropriately. We then move on to more complex examples where the attacker needs to overcome stiffer resistance. Giddins repeatedly shows that despite the tactical complexity of many of these battles, the fundamental concepts can be grasped by all chess-players, and will help them navigate through apparently intimidating terrain. The many topics include: * Attacking weak colour complexes * The principle of two weaknesses * Choosing the right exchanges * Devastating opening preparation * Manoeuvring in 'restraint' structures * Handling must-win situations
