ChessFlash Book Review/Recommendations by ChessLab/Jude Acers
Logical Chess Move by Move reviewed -- Greatest Book of All Time.
FOR THE STUDENT....Planning your opening attack with the white pieces? Putting on paper your entire selected defense system with the black pieces? There is nothing like two first rate all- in -one handbooks just released. Even the pros use these books! Nunn' Chess Openings (NCO) by English theory wizard John Nunn (with Burgess,Emms,Gallagher) lists the openings by name, includes a great move-by-move variation index 544 pages later. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED......
Just in time for a student's backpack while traveling to the 3 million dollar Caesar's Palace world championship extravaganza this summer, 69 year old A. Matanovic (Chess Informant) produces his brand new SMALL ENCYCL0PEDIA OF THE CHESS OPENINGS, keyed internationally with 50 symbols for reading in 200 countries (die kleine, petite, pequena, piccola, liten, malaya, mala encyclopedia)..The inventor of the "ABCDE" Opening classification system (with Rabar) four decades ago, Mr. Matanovic just keeps ticking merrily with the premier chess quality he never dreamed he'd witness in #74 volume (just released), 4 decades (and counting!) of his epic " CHESS INFORMANT" series. Leading professionals have every one, Fischer has them in suitcases as he travels. "I don't need more sleep ..I need more Informants!" Fischer once whispered during a tough event. Grandmasters have warned Mr. Matanovic that "The space is up to the apartment roof now.. Please, can you make them a little thinner?" and. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
