A Beginners Book Of Chess

RRP $16.99

In placing this little volume before the public we hope to offer a "Beginners Book of Chess" that will in a clear and concise manner explain the elements of our Royal Game.

As to the arrangement of the text, the movement of each of the pieces is first given and this text is followed by a printed diagram illustrating this power in action; immediately following are general observations founded on the experience of masters and students of the theory of the game.

We have drawn freely from Steinitz and other recognized authorities on the game for many of the definitions and deductions quoted.

We have included a generous number of illustrating diagrams and we believe they will be found exceedingly helpful to the beginner, who is first given an abstract statement followed by a concrete example in the accompanying diagram.

In learning the game nothing of course can quite equal personal teaching wherein the scholar and teacher meet and immediate play and instructions are joined in the lesson. The student is urged, if desirous of substantial improvement in play, to play regularly and with players stronger than himself.

Beginners and even fairly advanced players agree on one thing: analysing the strength or weakness of a position (material being equal) is the hardest part of chess to learn. It is also one of the hardest elements to teach, and there are some who claim it is unteachable. But this wonderfully lucid book, written by one of the outstanding chess expositors of the twentieth century, presents the basis of analysis in such a disarmingly simple way that even the most casual player will be able to improve his game immensely.Sticking to a few well-chosen examples and explaining every step along the way, the author shows you how to avoid playing a hit-or-miss game, from move to move, and instead develop general plans of action based on positional analysis: weak and strong squares, the notion of controlling a square, how to seize control of open lines, weak points in the pawn structure, and other aspects of analysis.He includes as well a number of tips (not often found in books for beginners and average players) that the reader would do well to commit to memory: such hints as ""Never omit to blockade an enemy passed pawn,"" and ""Do not be content with attacking an existing weakness; always seek to create others."" Throughout the book he defines and illustrates typical chess mistakes, and anyone reading his book carefully will learn in a few hours what he might otherwise have spent years to attain. For this revised edition, the author added 20 problems from master games on which the reader can test his understanding of the principles found in the text.

To become a Chess master takes years. But to beat your friends? All you need is 8 easy principles. Join the Chess book revolution! No notation. No complex terminology.

Your dad taught you how to play Chess, but he didn't teach you much. You already know how to checkmate and move the pieces, but let's face it, your friends and family still beat you more than you'd like. You DON'T just want to play. You want to win and possibly CONQUER ALL YOUR FRIENDS!

You sly dog! I know the feeling and I'm here to help.

My name is Maxen R. Tarafa and I'm a Skill Artist. In a few short months, I went from a struggling post-beginner to an adept intermediate player and doubled my Chess ability by teaching myself. In this book, I show you how you can double, even triple, your Chess ability like I did, but faster.

But I'm going to tell you right now. My method is rather controversial.

You see, most chess "experts" bombard you with complex Chess notation (QxB6?) and expect you to read complex Chess terminology. I don't do that. I'll give you a cheat sheet of what you NEED to remember, and you'll be off to the Chess boards and killing Queens like it's nobody's business.

In this book, you learn:

-How to play your first 10 moves so YOU control the game (Chess Openings)

-How to use 3 techniques (or Chess tactics) like bringing light sabers to a knife fight

-How to identify one weakness, if you simply recognize it, you can win in one move

-How to cut your training time in ½. Know what to study and apply brainhacking techniques.

-How to avoid common beginner mistakes with time-tested Chess strategy

-Where to find FREE Chess websites, apps, videos, and technology to double your skills

-How to use the one principle I taught to Eduardo that took him from losing miserably to unbeatable

-How to "bend" the Chess rules with little-known special moves (it's not cheating!)

-And more

I taught a 9-year-old these principles and a week later he was beating 17-year-olds. Anyone, even you, can learn how to double your Chess ability by learning a few easy principles. You'll even learn how to speed your decision-making and play speed chess.

If you're looking for quick and easy Chess instruction to double your skills, but don't want to learn complex terminology and notation, this book is for you!

Don't let your friend, brother, dad, or roommate beat you again!

Join the Casual Chess revolution! Plain-English Chess Instruction for Casual Players, Post-Beginners, and People who Want to Learn Fast!
