Paata Gaprindashvili, Imagination in Chess by Paata Gaprindashvili
ISBN: 0713488913 | edition 2004 | PDF | 145 pages | 13 mb
There is much published on chess tactics, strategy, openings and endings, but little on training the brain to think and evaluate. This book is dedicated to that task and provides numerous positions that encourage independent and original problem solving. The examples emphasise the power of logical thinking, quick wit and imagination. The author presents some new concepts, such as progressive and reciprocal thinking, to help readers to make fewer mistakes and avoid unnecessary foolish errors. Paata Gaprindashvili is an International Correspondence Chess Master and past European CC Champion.
