Have there been times during a game when you have calculated a position for half an hour, only to find out that most of what you were thinking about was of little use?
If you have not, maybe the only way to improve your calculation is to upgrade your processor. But if you are human, then this book will offer you practical advice and an effective training plan to think differently and make decisions far more efficiently.
In Calculation thinking methods such as Candidates, Combinations, Prophylaxis, Comparison, Elimination, Intermediate Moves, Imagination and Traps are explained to the reader, and ownership of them is offered through a carefully selected series of exercises.
Grandmaster Jacob Aagaard won the British Championship at his first and only attempt. He has received the Guardian, ECF and ChessCafe Book of the Year awards and the FIDE Senior Trainer title. His training material is used by amateurs and grandmasters alike.
Jacob Aagaard is an author who has won several awards on both sides of the Atlantic. Most recently, his two Attacking Manual volumes were chosen as Book of the Year by both the English Chess Federation and the Guardian newspaper.
