    Experienced chess trainer Valeri Beim explians, with hundreds of wonderfully clear examples, when intuition comes into play, why some players have better intuition than others, what the functions of intuition are, and why your intuition gets weaker as you get older.

    Each of us has the power of making intuitive decisions, and you will learn how you can train and develop this human gift. With sparkling tales about Fischer, Carlsen, Tal and other greats in chess and instructive examples of practical play, this is a thought-provoking, yet highly accessible work.

    • Creative Chess
      Most chess books aim to guide and instruct by offering principles, rules, schemes and theories. Creative Chess, on the other hand, has a quite different and original approach. It firmly maintains that every chessplayer, whether amateur or master, is capable of creating something new in chess. After a discussion of the characteristics and processes of creativity, 10 central concepts, such as unusual positioning and functioning of pieces, alertness to subtle differences, absurd moves, and flexibility, are presented with a wealth of truly amazing examples to encourage the reader to broaden the horizons of his chess thinking.

      'When most people learn to play chess, they usually memorize the movements of the pieces and then spend years pummeling away at each other with little rhyme and even less reason. Though I will show you how each piece leaps around, what it likes to do on holidays, the real purpose of this book is to teach you to understand the four major principles of my Seirawan method: force, time, space and pawn structure. Each is easy to understand and each is a weapon that will enable you to defeat most anyone you challenge to a game' -Yasser Seirawan
