Sacrifice and Initiative in Chess: Seize the Moment to Get the Advantage

kr 240,00

Sacrifice and Initiative in Chess er en underholdende og læreriktig guide, fullpakket med nyttige råd og glitrende eksempler

Offeret er et av de vakreste og komplekse elementene i sjakk. Å gi opp materiale for å få en fordel er ofte den vanskligste vurderingen å ta under et parti, men det er ofte også den mest givende!

Ivan Sokolov, en virkelig angrepsmester, presenterer et sett med praktiske verktøy som vil hjelpe deg å mestre denne kunstformen. Han fokuserer på målet du prøver å oppnå, og lærer deg hvordan du utvikler din intuisjon.

Et offer er det naturlige produktet av initiativet, mener Sokolov. Dette forklarer hvorfor forfatteren bruker en betydelig del av boken til dette vakre elementet i sjakk. Han er klar i formen og viser tydelig når initiativet står på spill og hvordan du skal ta tak i det.

“One of the best practical guides ever written.”
