Between and I produced and published i n Germany a small series of ten trai ning booklets, each one covering a partic u l ar chess theme.
T h i s experi m ental proj ect proved quite popular with German-speaking readers, and others too. Many of my chess colleagues liked this form of i n d ivid ual trai n i ng; and some of them u sed the m aterial in their cl asses too. This favou rable reaction pro m pted the idea of an Engl ish translati o n. Although the booklets were aimed at p l ayers of d ifferi ng abil ities, m o s t wanted the complete set. And that's how these d ifferent themes h ave ended up in one book. You could also look on this d iversity as a strength if a reader, with chess am bitions, wants to test his overall ability.
Moreover, for chess trainers this book provides several ready-made lectures, and many usefu l exercises covering d ifferent aspects of the game, al ready sorted in terms of their level of d ifficu l ty. These chapters are, on the whole, the sim plest, and pl ayers rated below Elo should probably start with them.
Two chapters deal with positional themes: chapter 4 , exchanging pieces ; and chapter 9, improvi ng piece positio n. These fou r chapters are more challenging and perhaps s u i table for players w ith an Elo above H owever, p l ayers of any strength cou ld profit from studyi ng them.
Two chapters deal w i th the q u estion of calculation: chapter 2, can d i d ate m oves ; and chapter 7, the process of e l i m i n ation. These themes are more su i table for players with an Elo rati ng greater than Less experienced p l ayers s h o u l d go th rough the examples and try to solve the one and two-star positions. Chapter 5 deals with a strategical theme, passed pawns i n the midd legame, and contains many add i tional examples that could also be u sed by c l u b players as exercises.
For more advanced players, i t s h o u l d be e nough to p l ay through these examples carefu l ly on the chessboard. How should an ambitious p l ayer work with this book? I suggest two possi bil ities : a direct approach; and one based on the d ifficu l ty of the exercises. With the d i rect approach, go thro ugh the examples at the start of the chapter, then tackle the exercises.
The exercises are m arked with stars accord i ng to their d ifficulty. Accord i ng to you r rati ng, each star gives the fol l owing scori ng and th i n ki ng time: - Below Elo, 1 point for solvi ng a position i n under 10 m i n utes.
So, for example, an exercise with three stars should take a player with an Elo of a maxi m u m 21 m i n utes to solve, and gives h i m 3 points. At the end of each chapter you w i l l find t h e answers, a n d you can see how well you understood t h e theme.
There are some special exercises i n the chapters o n cal c u lation that you m ust p lay through move by move. Check the i nstr u ctions before you try these exercises. I also suggest an alternative method of a p proaching th i s book - accor d i ng to the d iff i c u l ty of the exercises. Th i s m ethod is suitable for p layers with a n Elo below I n each cha pter, wor k through the exam ples, then try to solve the positions u p to the second level of diff iculty.
When you have fin ished the book, come back and consider positions on level three. If you are comfor table with the res u l ts, ra i se the level aga i n. If you fi nd you aren't yet ready for the next l evel , put the book back on the shelf, d o some other chess wor k, but af ter a couple of months come back and try again! But i n the end, per haps the most i m por tant th ing i s not to ta ke a l l these poi nts too ser iously.
I hope you wil l j u st enjoy the book. F i nal ly, I wou l d l i ke to tha n k several people who hel ped to make this project possi ble: my wife Nad ia for her hard wor k on the German version ; my chess teacher Mar k Dvoretsky; Jurgen Da niel, my p u bl i sher, for encouragi ng the idea of an Engl ish translati o n ; and U l i Dirr for the layout of the book a n d for correcti ng some m istakes i n the or iginal Ger ma n ed ition.
