Jesus gave people a wonderful game - chess! The game is very popular around the world because it helps a person to learn how to make informed decisions; a skill that is becoming increasingly valuable in our ever-expanding world! During my 25 years of coaching, I have helped more than 600 boys and girls to learn how to make their first moves in chess. Among them was the world chess champion among people with disabilities Alexey Smirnov ( FIDE ID 4168437, FIDE Elo 2451). The ways of learning the basics of chess, which are described in this book, have been repeatedly tested and have brought forth excellent results. The material is given in a simple and effective way, so that Teach Yourself Chess can be used by any person of any age who has the ability to read. The only requirement for this tutorial is a chessboard with its pieces so that the reader can apply immediately all the theoretical information. This tutorial can be successfully used by parents who want to teach their children the basics of the game. I am sure that this book will be useful for school teachers who decide to introduce their students to an exciting game.

Chess Fundamentals was first published thirteen years ago. Since then there have appeared at different times a number of articles dealing with the so-called Hypermodern Theory. Those who have read the articles may well have thought that something new, of vital importance, had been discovered. The fact is that the Hypermodern Theory is merely the application, during the opening stages generally, of the same old principles through the medium of somewhat new tactics. There has been no change in the fundamentals. The change has been only a change of form, and not always for the best at that. In chess the tactics may change but the strategic fundamental principles are always the same, so that Chess Fundamentals is as good now as it was thirteen years ago. It will be as good a hundred years from now; as long in fact as the laws and rules of the game remain what they are at present. The reader may therefore go over the contents of the book with the assurance that there is in it everything he needs, and that there is nothing to be added and nothing to be changed. Chess Fundamentals was the one standard work of its kind thirteen years ago and the author firmly believes that it is the one standard work of its kind now.
