Download Bobby Fischer: His Approach to Chess by Elie Agur PDF

By Elie Agur

First, why you this booklet can be for you.

The strengths of this publication is the method of learning the play of Fischer. The approach hired within the improvement of this publication is unusual and extremely powerful to actually study the features of a private enjoying variety. The research and dialogue is perfect for a constructing (but no longer inevitably already powerful participant) quite often. The concerns in studying Fischer's variety should be utilized to any chess grasp that one may study.

Why did the publication drop to 3 stars?

The research is common too superficial to supply any genuine deep perception into the positions. This probably as a result of power of the writer (FIDE approx. 2250). He definitely does a greater activity at explaining positions than convinced GMs which are simply "mailing" of their research, yet does not come anyplace close to with regards to the pinnacle chess writers reminiscent of Beim, Marin and Soltis (and yes others). there are various occurences the place video games finish with the remark "and then it's Fischer's technique". The ebook is set method however the writer by no means relatively "gets" that Fischer's process and protecting skills allowed Fischer to make competitive judgements. definite, he alluded to this in lots of sections, yet no synthesis used to be supplied to truly supply an image of why Fischer's skill used to be so dominate in his run opposed to the Soviets. this sort of dialogue might have more desirable the ebook significantly. as an alternative, the publication is number of attributes characterizing a taking part in variety with often 4 or 5 examples. My major challenge is that almost all examples and features will be discovered for many best GMs. the writer did little or no to distinction the effectiveness Fischer's type opposed to the avid gamers of his time or perhaps the gamers as much as the ebook date.

In end ...

If you are an aspiring enhancing participant, this e-book is an engaging and instructive learn yet do your personal homework! struggle through a publication like Soltis' Fischer Rediscovered and definitely learn Bobby Fischer's My Sixty so much Memorable video games. simply forget about the truth that the attributes are hugely similar and sometimes an merchandise like "timing" can't be disconnected from all of the different features and possibly will not be mentioned at its personal subject.
