Tredje bok i den ambisiøse og ganske imponerende bokserien av dansk-skotske Jacob Aagaard. Han viser stoffet sitt med moderne instruktive eksempler som ikke er gjentagelser fra tidligere bøker, og samme gjelder de oppfølgende oppgavene til leseren.

Dette er en skikkelig og antagelig inspirerende treningsbok for spillere som aspirerer til mestersjakk, elitesjakk, IM-tittel og eventuelt stormestertittel.

Kapitlene i boka er disse:

  • 1: Squares
  • 2: Pieces
  • 3: Prophylaxis
  • 4: Dynamics
  • 5: Fighting the Tide

Det er en bok mest for spillere som allerede er på ganske høyt nivå, for eksempel fra ratingstyrke omlag 1600 og da gjerne minst tusen ratingpoeng oppover...

Boka har også en fin introduksjon (14 sider med også partier) av den indiske stormesteren Surya Shekhar Ganguly.

STARTEN PÅ FORFATTERENS FORORD:

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” – Albert Einstein

This is the most difficult chess book I have written, although it will probably not be nearly as difficult for the reader as it was for the author! This is not to say that the book does not contain chess of mind-boggling complexity, it does. Rather I want the reader to spend just a few seconds feeling pity for the poor author who worked for months putting this book together. It is absolutely imperative that this should happen now, as all forms of compassion are likely to leave the reader’s mind once he gets bogged down in the very first exercise!

I am not sure that the title of this book is entirely accurate, maybe it would have been better to call it Complex Positions, but this would probably convince the already very limited number of people interested in this book that it is dull and torturous. Instead I decided to call the book Strategic Play, because the skills exercised in this book are to a great extent the same ones used when we make strategic decisions: the combination of calculation, positional evaluation and long-term abstract thinking.

Four types of decisions

“I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.” – Albert Einstein

One of the key ideas I try to pass on to the people I work with is that chess is not about winning, but is rather about solving a lot of small puzzles as successfully as possible. In order to do this we are provided with only a limited amount of time. So, even though winning (or at times drawing) is certainly our wish, we simply do not have time to focus on that aspect of the game. Instead we need to focus on the position we have right now and make a good decision as quickly as we can, but no quicker than that, of course.

I think it makes sense to divide the decisions we make in a game into four categories, in order to identify our weaknesses better. This is especially useful for those suffering from time trouble addiction, who can work out where all of their time is lost. But it also makes sense for others to look at their errors through this window ...
