About this deal

The author presents the material in an engaging and concise manner and includes practical examples after the theory, and exams at the end of each chapter. Really excellent book, found it useful after coming back to chess after a break, interspersed with key ideas and principles for all parts of your game. Logical Chess' writing seems a bit puerile, and I can flip through pages pretty easily, whereas I like the density of the Soviet Primer. Os exercícios também são muito difíceis desde o início, mas não são impossíveis, e ajudam muito a melhorar o cálculo. If you have a national chess federation ELO rating of 1300-1599 I highly recommend this fantastic book.

Approximately 60% of the Russian text appears in The Soviet Chess Primer; although I cannot read the Cyrillic lettering, it appears that some detailed opening analysis and sections on the history of chess were excised.The Soviet Chess Primer is a modern English translation of Maizelis's witty introduction to the royal game. It is your responsibility to make sure that your operating equipment is compatible with the relevant software or video DVD before purchasing and that software purchased is functionally adequate for your needs.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Ultimately, I'd recommend this for the serious beginner or early-intermediate chess player looking to deepen his or her knowledge of the game. Those world be my 3 picks, maybe also an easier tactics book before Polgar, not that it’s hard, but maybe it’s too much for a total beginner.Each chapter concludes with a whimsical set of “Entertainment Pages,” where miniatures and ‘fun exercises’ appear, and some of the original drawings are brought over from the Russian. Maizelis includes outrageously difficult mate problems in the ‘fun’ section of chapter one, and his account of the theory of corresponding squares (152) belongs in an endgame tome and not here. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.

I really liked the simple language used in this book , and a lot and lot of the innumerable chess themes and every fundamentals are covered with great detail and instructive examples. Despite my reservations about the title, The Soviet Chess Primer is a fine book and its acclaim is deserved.

Chess is largely a matter of pattern recognition, and this book will help you start to recognize the patterns.
