New Ideas in Chess
New Edition of this Great Classic!
by Larry Evans
Publisher: Cardoza Publishing, 2011
Edition: Paperback medium
>>> Finally One of the Most Influential Chess Books ever is back!
Five- time U.S Champion Larry Evans shows you the most important concepts that comprise a winning chess game: Space, Time, Force & Pawn Structure.
In a book that has been called the "bible" for novice to intermediate player," this newly revised classic uses actual game examples to illustrate dozens of chess themes. Each is a mini-lesson that illustrates the fundamental concepts of modern chess theory, ones that can be learned in easy, quick sittings.
You'll learn the concepts of Space (mobility, the center, controlling unoccupied squares, stability.), Time (development, gambits, pins, tactics), Force (relative values, sacrifices), and Pawn Structure (passed, connected, isolated and backward pawns), and how to weave them together into a winning game.
Features 196 diagrams and, for the first time in this book, modern chess notation (algebraic) making the book accessible to a new generation of chess players who couldn’t read the antiquated notation of the original.
Grandmaster Larry Evans, five-time U.S. champion, author of more than 20 books, has beaten or drawn games against six world champions - Euwe, Smyslov, Petrosian, Spassky, Fischer and Karpov, - as well as dozens of the world's best players.
At age 19, Evans was the youngest ever to capture the nation's highest chess title, a record surpassed only by Bobby Fischer at 15.
