Review the seven deadly sins
Hello chess lovers. After welcoming you to the blog, it's time to go for a job. Let's start analyzing products like this, without fear. We have decided that this first product is a very instructive book, the seven chess sins of Jonathan Rowson .
We all know the 7 capital sins of Christianity. Hundreds of movies and books have addressed this issue. How to forget the Brad Pitt movie that along with Morgan Freeman was chasing a serial killer who wanted to teach the world through the 7 deadly sins : greed, gluttony, lust, laziness, anger, envy and pride.
The 7 deadly sins of chess start from this philosophical / religious idea. The Great Master and British Champion Jonathan Rowson reveals in this book the origin of our disasters as chess players and how it is the seed of defeat . But instead of discouraging us, it helps us improve and know how to act to grow chess.
The 7 deadly sins of chessRowson uses the 7 deadly sins transformed into factors that lead us to error during the games. This will allow us to analyze our juigo strategies and teach us how to get rid of these ballasts. These are the 7 sins of chess:
- Thought: The rules of chess limit our thinking if we stick too much to them. This hurts us when playing.
- Relaxation: This occurs when we miss key moments or positions during the game. This is due to lack of concentration .
- Avidity: Sometimes, we make mistakes for thinking too much about victory and not so much for the passing of it. Rowson teaches us that every movement is important through " gumption ."
- Materialism: Materialism happens due to the attachment or that we have for the value of the pieces. We must learn to look beyond and give value to all the factors of the game (material, time, quality and clock times).
- Selfishness: If we do not pay attention to the rival's options and only think of our pieces, we will suffer from selfishness.
- Perfectionism: If we seek perfection on every play, this can translate into time problems. Pragmatism and self confidence is the solution.
- Dispersion: Dispersion happens when we lose the thread of the game, when we are not fully focused on it. This gives rise to other sins.
