Arkadij Naiditsch and Csaba Balogh analyse the 50 most interesting draws from the years of 2012-2015.
Draw has a very bad reputation in chess and indeed it can be really boring sometimes.
However, there are also plenty of fighting games as well, where both players are trying their best in order to win the game, but it finally ends in draw.
This kind of extremely tense battles is exactly what the book is about.
The authors aim to explain mainly by words to make it understandable for the players on any level.
GM Adrian Mikhalchishin:
"Nowadays, many players rely on "computer" evaluations much more than their own "human" understanding.
Is this fatal to the rise of a chess player?!
A chess program should be nothing other than an assistant to our improvement as chess players.
This is why, in my view, it is more important to develop our understanding of the chess game - and this can be done most effectively by working with a stronger player.
In the current book you have the opportunity to join two super-GMs in their thinking processes, and observing the chess game 'as it is'."
Don't miss it!
