Excelling at Chess Calculation: Capitalizing on Tactical Chances

Reassess in on my shelf waiting to be read, then comes Mastering Chess Strategy by Hellsten and a few others. Aagaard's books are of a pretty high level, and are not really textbooks in the sense Silman's books can be. If you're interested you can have a look, and if you find them too challenging, come back to them later.

It's worth noting that some very respected instructors, including Chess. Silman disagrees, but there it is. I am also currently going through Amateurs Mind right now. I started playing in tournaments a couple months ago and already Silman wants me to reassess my chess I don't think the material in reassess your chess is difficult at all. It's just knowing where to put pieces.

Jacob Aagaard's writing is generally quite dry, I find when he's writing about chess.

I suspect that's a function of level. Another author who writes advanced stuff is Mark Dvoretsky and I think his writing is dry too. The impression given is "This is not meant to be fun!

I personally prefer a degree of "leavening" of the chessic dough, otherwise I get tired quickly. Fair enough. I guess it's a matter of personal taste. I wouldn't download anything from this guy, especially when there are more civil writers, like Jeremy Silman and Bill Robertie.

My agenda in this book is to show how endgame technique is used in practce by strong players, and in doing so, I wl try to explain, at length, how the different moves are found.

With words when the moves should be understood abstracdy, and with varatons when these are appropriate. Often tese two aspects wl ase in the gaes in that order. First a general plan is drawn out, the pieces are manoeuved and the positon is improved to the mamum; then comes a moment when confrontaton should no longer be postponed, and concrete acton is taken.

This often requires exact calculaton, and the answer to why one move is better than another can be explained in no better way than through analysis and vartons. This is because the positons become more tactcal in nature once direct attacks on the opponent's pieces are executed, or once a passed pawn is pushed forward in an attempt to promote it. If the passed pawn is promoted the game wl probably be won.

If a knight is captured for free, the gae is probably won as well. Assumptons have little use in determinig if this is really the case, or if the pawn can be promoted at all.

Concrete calculaton wlhave to do the job. What sthe endgame! Before launchg into these seven crucial techniques it is approprate to discuss what the endgame really is.

And in that respect, what the middlegame is, and also the openig. There is not really any easy answer. Let me t to explain the complexity wth the followg positon: 5passky-FscherSvet Stefan 4th match game It would be easy to argue that this is a positon from the opening, and in some respects it is.

Black stll needs to fmd a good square for the king and to get his rooks into play. The easiest way to defme the opening phase is to say that it is where the players develop thei pieces.

On the other hand, the positon could also be called a middlegame positon.

White has flly developed his forces and is ready to improve his positon wth the pawn moves f-f and e3-e4 as he played in the game. So, maybe this is a The Endgame middlegame wthout queens?

The third opton is that this is an endgame. For what is most characteristc about the endgame? That there is no attack against the kig.

In the endgame the king can play actvely as a piece and only seldom wl it be threatened with mate. Another common feature of the endgame is the promoton of passed pawns. This is not coming up right now, but on the other hand there are pawnless endings as well.

What makes this an ending in some respects is that pawn weaknesses play a major pat in evaluatng the positon and creatng a plan. But then, dynamics play a lead role as well. Norally this would be caled a queenless middlegame, but it is a defniton without much meaning.

What is imporant is the positon itself and how it is going to be played. The king's safety is enhanced by the absence of queens, but with all the other pieces on the board there are stl tactcal ideas like So there is really no satisfactory defnition of the position.

And this wl be the case with many positions, which are in no man's land between the opening and middlegame, or middlegame and endgame. In his Endgame Manual Mark Dvoretsky considers an endgame to be a position where neither of the players has more than one piece left. Although he includes rook and bishop vs. Positions where neither player has more than one piece can hardly be anything else than an endgame.

But what about positions with two pieces each?

Again it seems to me hard to imagne a situaton where this 1 1 Excelling at Technical Chess would not be an endgame. But once both players have three pieces, it becomes a grey zone.

Sometimes this, sometimes that. The idea of the book is to illustate the technical aspects of complex endings most often stg wth more than one piece each i as clear a fashion as possible.

Theoretcal and tactcal endgames -the majority of which are known as studies - are fascinatng and every player should devote al of his lfe to them, or at least as much of it as he ca spare, but they wl not be found here for simple reasons. I believe that my style of writng is well suited for writng exacdy this kind of book, and that the books by Shereshevsky, Dvoretsky, Mednis, etc. If for no other reason, than because the instructve material is limited.
