Chess Lessons by Vladimir Popov
This kind of book can be rather heavy going, but this interplay has a certain lessonx and is cheering when his students make plenty of mistakes as well. I would suggest that this book is especially suitable for players roughly in the range, although I suspect that higher-rated players will benefit as well, touching up their weak spots.
Most of the games in this book were unknown to me refreshingly, many are taken from top women’s games and the commentary contains enough food for thought to rethink your our faults and shortcomings. For instance, the ‘too much calculation’ phenomenon seems to me typical of a particular group of cyess players who are very good at calculation but have little notion of strategic concepts.
If only they would all read this book! Arne MollChessVibes full review. Popov gave up playing vlxdimir his twenties to devote his life to developing young talent and he has given a lot of thought how best do this Chess Lessons is an excellent book that will prove helpful for not only the examples it offers but the ways it teaches one how to look at the game.
Highly recommended for players from on up. However, the more I read, the more I realized that the quality of material on offer was of a very high calibre It’s a very interesting book and definitely a cut above standard instructional work.
It is reminiscent of some of GM Dvoretsky’s books in some respects, albeit in a more accessible way. Sean MarshMarsh Towers full review. I give it five stars out of five. Franco ZaninottoSoloscacchi full review in Italian.
