¡Tu módulo de ajedrez puede hacer mucho más que calcular variantes!
Cada jugador de ajedrez, desde el nivel del club hasta el nivel profesional, puede mejorar en sus partidas utilizando módulos. Ese es el mensaje del nuevo y estimulante libro de Matthew Sadler, basado en muchos años de experiencia con el mejor software de ajedrez del mundo. Es posible que no puedas replicar sus deslumbrantes cálculos profundos, ¡pero tu módulo puede hacer mucho más por ti que solo verificar variantes!
Matthew Sadler, co-author of the groundbreaking bestseller Game Changer, presents some unique methods to improve by using your engine. He explains how in your opening preparation, instead of sifting through masses of computer analysis you should play training games against your engine. He also shows how to train your early middlegame play, the conversion of advantages, your positional play, and your defensive skills. And, of course: how to analyse your own games.
These generic training methods Sadler supplements with concrete techniques. He explains how the top engines tackle crucial middlegame themes such as entrenched pieces, whole board play, ‘attacking rhythm’, exchanging pieces, the march of the Rook’s pawn, queen versus pieces, and many others. He also opens your eyes to typical strategies that the engines found and fine-tuned in popular openings such as the King’s Indian, the Grünfeld, the Slav, the French and the Sicilian.
Sadler illustrates his lessons with a collection of fantastic games, explained with his trademark enthusiasm. For the first time, the superhuman powers of the chess engine have been decoded to the benefit of all players, in a rich and highly instructive book.
Matthew Sadler is a Grandmaster and a former British Champion. With co-author Natasha Regan, Sadler won the prestigious English Chess Federation Book of the Year Award for their worldwide bestseller Game Changer: AlphaZero’s Groundbreaking Chess Strategies and the Promise of AI.
