Alternative Views:


This little booklet is specially written for beginners and players who have only an elementary knowledge of the game. With it they can learn to enjoy chess faster. It will enable them to improve their chess skills quickly up to strength of an average club player (ELO rating 1700). It will tell them what disappointments they will encounter, all necessary for improvement. It will also result in better appreciation of the combat element in chess, and the positive character-traits that are developed by playing regulary. It will teach them the rules of chess, and covers the basic concepts of openings and endgames. 

For those who have often stood in awe when seeing a game of chess played, this booklet will serve as an easy guide to remove the mystery. It is purposely priced very low to suit the pocket of students. In doing so, it fulfills the wish of the authors (both members of Hong Kong's Olympic team for more than 10 years, and both weekly columnists in major publications) as an active contribution to the 'Royal Game'. It is a small investment that will repay itself a hundred-fold.
