Chess is a Struggle: My Selected Games

eBook (PDF), 124 Pages
(2 Ratings)
Price: $7.99
I have been playing tournament chess for over 30 years and my FIDE, CFC and FQE ratings are in the 2100s. In this book, I annotate 50 games from my tournament play. They were played against opponents ranging in strength from 'A' class to International Master. I believe that, despite being far from GM quality, games played at this level can be instructive and entertaining. It is chess as most of us play it; imperfect, yet interesting despite the flaws. This book grew from my chess notebooks, and represents two years of work. I hope that it might inspire others to put out their own book.

    Very entertaining reading, and nice to read a chess book by somebody who doesn't assume that I understand as much as the author does.

    "Very Enlightening" I've studied the first 5 games in detail and skimmed through much of the rest. In spite of what the author's self deprecating humility might indicate he is obviously a highly skilled chess player with valuable lessons to teach. He details the reasons, both emotional and technical, behind the moves made in the games. He walks us through the lessons he has learned from the early games of his chess career to the later ones. He obviously put a lot of time and effort into this work and it shows. I'm looking forward to studying the rest of the games. I give this book 6 stars!
