A revealing look at the details of chess thinking
Although the methods of thinking are at the heart of the chess struggle, most players spent little conscious effort to improve their ability to calculate.
Much of the earlier literature on this topic has presented idealized models of little relevance in the tumult of practical chess, or that provide little more than ad hoc suggestions.
In this work, the expert coach Valeri Beim explains how to use intuition and logic together to solve tactical problems methodically. It also offers advice on when it is best to calculate "like a machine" and when is it preferable to rely on intuitive evaluation.
Valeri Beim is a grandmaster who lives in Austria. He has won numerous tournaments and plays regularly in the Championships by teams from Austria and Germany. For many years he was the head coach of Odessa chess school. He also coached the Olympic team of Israel. This is the third book published Beim that this editorial: Lessons in Chess Strategy, 2005 and How to Play Dynamic Chess, 2007.
