Enda en bok for å trene sjakktaktikk, gjennom 33 tematiske kapitler alle med litt forklaring og grunnleggende eksempler i starten og temmelig delikate og krevende stillinger etterhvert, delvis også fra elegante sjakkstudier.

En stor og ganske spennende bok for framgang i sjakk, med bra forklaringer i Lakdawalas som vanlig muntre stil. Mest for spillere fra cirka 1400 og godt oppover.

Forlagets egen omtale:

It is hard to understate the importance of tactic ability to overall chess proficiency. Of course other elements such as a knowledge of opening play and an understanding of strategy are also important. However, it is undoubtedly the case that 99% of games are won or lost because one player either spots or overlooks a tactic. Consider your own games and just imagine how much stronger you would be if you never overlooked a tactical idea.

The good news is that your tactical ability is not some genetically-acquired unalterable trait. Tactical ability can always be improved through the application of diligent practice. Tactical themes are repetitive. The same arrangements of pieces occur again and again and a continual study of the subtle interactions between the forces will inevitably lead to a greater sharpness in actual play.

In Tactical Training, experienced chess coach and prolific author Cyrus Lakdawala guides the reader through numerous tactical themes. Topics include:

  • Checkmating patterns.
  • The 32 major combinational concepts.
  • Numerous positions ranked in terms of level of difficulty.

The final chapter focuses on a 2020 online match between Magnus Carlsen and Hikaru Nakamura, currently the top two ranked players in blitz, the form of chess where tactics predominate.

Fra forfatterens forord:

Unlike my book on composed works, Rewire Your Chess Brain, in this book I label both the theme and difficulty level of the problem. For example: You are in the Double Attack chapter and it says “Level 3” which means you know to look for a double attack. Level 3 is a problem an 1800-rated player should solve without breaking too much of a sweat.

Level 1 is kind of a no-brainer problem which should be solved in seconds. Level 2 is a basic tactical theme. Level 3 has been described. Level 4 gets steeply more difficult and even a 2000-rated player may have trouble solving it. Levels 4.5 to 5 means that even a 2400-rated player may sweat to solve it.

Om forfatteren Cyrus Lakdawala

Cyrus Lakdawala er en Internasjonal mester (IM) fra USA som i senere år faktisk må ha blitt verdens mest produktive sjakkforfatter. Likevel leverer han bok etter bok som er både instruktiv, poengtert og leseverdig. Han skriver så lett og vittig at det er mulig å mene at han overdriver, men en Lakdawala-bok er i alle fall langt fra tørr og kjedelig. Det er åpenbart dagens effektive analysemotorer og partibaser som gjør det mulig å levere raskt så mye sjakkstoff på et faglig bra nivå. Lakdawala har tydelig en glimrende oversikt selv og klarer å nå reelt godt fram til alminnelige sjakkspillere kanskje mest på ratingnivå cirka 1200 - 2000.
