En ekstra velredigert lære- og treningsbok om spill med ulike bondestrukturer, med målet å løfte eleven viktige steg fra vanlig greit klubbnivå og opp til mesterstyrke, som er forfatterens ambisiøse ærend.

IM Nick Maatman leverer faktisk en imponerende bra bok særlig for spillere med ratingnivå cirka 1500 - 2000. Han er konkret med både gjennomganger og Quiz-oppgaver, og ikke minst oppsummeringer om "hemmelighetene" (nøklene) for hvert kapittel. Samtidig er han både prinsipiell, leseverdig og filosofisk i innledningene sine underveis.

Forlagets egen omtale:

Have you ever wondered why strong chess players immediately grasp what is happening in complex positions? The secret is pawn structures. The pawn structure dictates the game's flow, and different structures require distinct approaches. You can improve your game by studying a large variety of pawn structures and the Hidden Laws of Chess.

IM Nick Maatman invented the Hidden Laws of Chess as an instructional tool to help his students bridge the gap between the basic understanding of a club player and the next level of knowledge of Masters and Grandmasters. A grandmaster knows from experience what pieces to exchange when facing an isolated pawn, while a club player wonders if he should keep his rooks on the board - or not.

The Hidden laws go one level deeper than the basic laws on piece development, king safety or material balance. The Hidden Laws will uncover elements such as space, the quality of a pawn structure, and a doubled pawn's strength or weakness. Maatman will answer questions like: Are backward pawns the worst in chess? What is the value of a space advantage? Could doubled pawns be an asset? How can I win symmetrical positions?

Using his coaching experience and writing with a touch of science and philosophy, Maatman will guide any ambitious chess player to the next level. His book contains dozens of actionable tips, instructive games and carefully selected exercises.

Nick Maatman (1995) is an International Master, experienced chess coach, and training partner of Super-GM Jorden van Foreest. Maatman has won the Dutch U20 Championship and has beaten many strong grandmasters in tournament games. The Hidden Laws of Chess is his first book, but he expects many more to follow. He graduated from Groningen University in both Business and Philosophy.
