BOOST YOUR CHESS 1: THE FUNDAMENTALS
Boost Your Chess 1. Artur Yusupov was a very strong Grandmaster in his prime.
Back in he was ranked third in the world and narrowly missed defeating Anatoly Karpov bui,d the latter was still near the peak of his legendary powers. These days Yusupov doesn t play so much preferring to spend his time teaching and writing.
The latter may well be where the Russian-German GM makes his most lasting contribution. Now he has two new three-volume series in the pipeline: The aim of these nine books is take the student from the club level to master strength.
Like the first three volumes in this series, this work is designed for self-study.
The subject matter covered is as follows: Yusupov uses his 24 chapters to systematically cover the basics, albeit at a more complex level. Tactics, openings, fundamental endgames, calculation of variations and the rudiments of positional chess are all addressed.
Each chapter starts with the introduction of a theme followed by progressively more difficult examples and finally exercises to solve with ul solutions.
Such an approach has been seen before but never done as well. One might ask why it is necessary to have such a high rated Grandmaster write a book for less-advanced players?
The answer is that Yusupov offers the rare combination of tremendous chess knowledge and the ability and desire to share it. I see three target audiences for this book. The first is for club players. Yusupov in his introduction says the book is aimed at players below but this needs some fine-tuning. National ratings very from country to country, but using United States Chess Federation ratings there is plenty of material of interest for those rated up to and in some arrtur to Yusupov mentions in the introduction that players benefit greatly from having a trainer and his book is intended as a replacement and not a substitute for one.
The third group this book may appeal to is the one-time player who finds that because of work and or family they simply don t have time to compete in tournaments anymore but still love the game and would like to learn more about it. This series chews perfect for such an individual.
