Description

I've been playing Chess casually for years online(not many people I know play it), and I realized that my rating hadn't gotten better in years.

Why endgames are so poignant - When material advantage, force a mutual destruction of pieces, endings with only pawns are easiest to win. I'm not sure why I read this book, but I bought it a few years ago for some reason (probably mentioned by some Youtuber) and so I finally finished reading it. I highly recommend this book to both beginners and experienced players, and would strongly suggest you play these games out, move by move, on a physical (or indeed electronic) board as you read through them in the book. Chernev had a good point, but personally this 'fixation' with not moving pawns in front of castled king held me back for a while.

The book was first published in 1957 so expect a game or two by Capablanca, Tarrasch, Rubenstein and Maroczy.

Even in intermediate or advanced games, the principle that pawns can't move backwards, that it creates weaknesses, is all still useful because you weigh that up against the benefits of such a move. It has the the thoughts of a human master-level player, which are, mistakes and all, better than the all computer analysis lines that anyone can generate. giving advice from previous grand masters and teaching you how a grand-master thinks and what should be done to prevent mistakes. Chernev has a way with words and always finds something interesting to say about the first move, even though through the course of the 33 games he mostly has words to say about the King's Pawn (1.Playing through these games and explanations offers insight into the power of the pieces and how to post them effectively. Above all others I'd recommend this to people who have a bit of chess interest but think reading a book will be too hard. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. That's not too much of a problem when it comes to the tactics, because tactics never go out of fashion.
