New In Chess


How good are you at bringing in the full point when you hold a clear advantage or are just plain winning? Pondering this question may well evoke some painful memories. Perhaps the single greatest frustration for club-level chess players is that time and again they see wins turn into draws or even losses.

The reasons for messing up a winning position are by no means just technical. And the rest is a matter of technique? Not likely, in the real world.

Recklessness, collapsing nerves, relaxing instead of preparing yourself for a long and arduous fight, the inability to cope with a small setback or with a busted opponent who has turned into a fearless desperado: based on four decades of teaching chess Cyrus Lakdawala has identified dozens of thought-provoking reasons why we are throwing away points that should be ours.

Lakdawala teaches how to:

  • efficiently exploit a development lead
  • capitalize on an attack
  • identify and convert favorable imbalances
  • accumulate strategic advantages
  • and other tools to increase your conversion rate.

His examples are compelling, his explanations are captivating and often funny. A recurring theme in this stimulating, instructive and entertaining book is: don’t burden yourself with the toxic task to prove that you are a genius. Just try to win.

Cyrus Lakdawala is an International Master and a former American Open Champion. He has been teaching chess for four decades.
