Why We Lose at Chess by Colin Crouch
The main reason why we lose at chess is no big secret: we all make unnecessary mistakes! But simply acknowledging this fact isnt enough to help us improve. The big question is, how can we eliminate these mistakes from our game, or at least keep them to an absolute minimum?
Colin Crouch tackles this vital subject face-to-face. Drawing upon his considerable experience, he looks back at critical moments within games where mistakes are made, and examines how we can recognise the danger signs and avoid making impulsive decisions. The reader is constantly challenged by exercises, which provide perfect training for real over-the-board battles.
- Essential training to eliminate mistakes
- Advice on how to improve calculation and assessment
- Includes over 50 carefully planned exercises.
