    • Bobby Fischer for Beginners
      The Most Famous Chess Player Explained
      Bobby Fischer's lone fight against the Soviet chess powerhouse made him a global hero, also for people who did not play chess at all. The Russians trembled before him, the Americans and the rest of the world cheered him on. Fischer's chess prowess and his will to win were unparalleled. But so were his eccentric behaviour and his paranoia. After he won the world title, Bobby Fischer vanished and the former prodigy became a mystery. The memories of his successwere clouded by his anti-American and anti-Semite rants.

    • Formation Attacks
      As a Chess Master who has spent many years playing aggressive and attacking chess, I was quite dismayed during a recent visit to my local bookstore. I was in search of a book that covered an array of attacks against many Pawn formations in an organized fashion. Needless to say, my search came up empty. The books on attacking fell short in many ways. Many of the books were simply a small collection of attack games with no instruction about the art of attacking or about the skills required to become a great attacker.
