Chess Quiz
14,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Chess Quiz is a collection of 15 chess quizzes each with 20 puzzles in them, for a total of 300 in all. The reader grades himself. If he gets 18 of the 20 right he is master strength. If he gets 16 right he is club player strength. If he gets 14 right he is amateur strength. If he gets only 10 right he is average strength. Each of the 300 problems comes from an actual game played by real players. The reader is not given any hints or clues as to what to look for. It might be mate, decisive win of material, advantage in the endgame or a surprising zugzwang. Thus, the problems are typical of what one might encounter in a real chess game. I took the quizzes myself. I usually got most of them right but I never got all of them right. A few had me stumped until I looked up the answer. I found the grading system to be fair, in ratings of Master, Club Player and Average. I strongly recommend that every chess player go through all 300 problems.

Chess Psychologist World Champion Tal
14,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1956, Mikhail Tal was unknown outside of his home town of Riga, Latvia. Then he started his incredible streak of brilliant sacrifices and amazing victories that made him World Chess Champion by 1960. How was Tal able to do this? How was Tal able to make improbable sacrifices against the world´s strongest players and still win? The answer, Tal himself said, was through ´´Chess Psychology´´. To this, Bobby Fischer famously countered, ´´I don´t believe in psychology, I believe in good moves.´´ But Tal wiped out Fischer, amazingly beating him 4-0 in the World Championship Candidate´s Tournament in Bled, Zagreb and Belgrade Yugoslavia in 1959. How was Tal able to do this? Can one really win chess games through chess psychology? Alexander Liepnieks was the best person to answer this question because not only did he know Tal personally being originally from Riga himself, but he was editor of a Latvian Chess Magazine and thus had access to the notes Tal had written in Latvian about these games. This book contains 60 games in Descriptive Notation annotated by Liepnieks and other Latvian masters including Edmars Mednis, Paul Tautvaisas and John Tums based on the notes by Tal. It also includes Tal´s Chess Quiz based on 10 of Tal´s games. (WARNING: This quiz is too difficult. You will not be able to solve the problems.)

Rubinstein´s Chess Masterpieces 100 Selected Games
24,50 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is not merely a great book. It is an important piece of chess history, because the author Hans Kmoch visited the Rubinstein Family Home in 1933 in an effort to get the great grandmaster of chess to return to active play. When Rubinstein could not be induced to return, his family who was living in dire poverty asked Kmoch for help in raising funds. The result was an ad placed asking to finance this book on a subscription basis. The result was a book entitled ´´Rubinstein gewinnt! : Hundert Glanzpartien des großen Schachkünstlers. Erläutert von Hans Kmoch. Biographische Einleitung von Jacques Hannak. Verlag der Wiener Schachzeitung, Wien 1933´´ That book was then translated into this book. It was a direct translation. All the games are the same. I have not been able to find any changes at all, although there are no doubt a few. I have just purchased the only original copy of the 1933 book Rubinstein gewinnt! left that I have been able to find after months of searching. I am reprinting it as ISBN 4871875806. Akiba Rubinstein was born on 12 December 1882 in Poland. He has long been regarded as the strongest chess player in history who never became world champion. A recent trivia quiz appeared in Chess Life Magazine: Who is the player who defeated Lasker, Capablanca and Alekhine the first time he played each of them. The answer was of course Akiba Rubinstein. Rubinstein won five tournaments in a row during the period 1912-1914. There is little doubt that he was the strongest player in the world at that time. Rubinstein´s contribution to chess opening theory has been enormous. Almost every major chess opening has a Rubinstein Variation or a Rubinstein Defense. Think about it: There is no Fischer Defense, no Capablanca Defense. But there are many variations called the Rubinstein Defense or Variation. Only Steinitz has as many openings named after him, but the Steinitz Defenses are no longer played. Rubinstein far outlived all of his contemporaries. His family all survived the war. Rubinstein died on 5 March 1961 in Antwerp, Belgium at age 83. He was in good physical health until just before he died. So perhaps there was a method to his madness.
