I think most people who read this book will share my opinion. By explaining the thought chezs that go into a master’s choice of mov How to Reassess Your Chess is the popular step-by-step course that will create a marked improvement in anyone’s game.

First of all, in the middle of the imbalances talk, Silman includes a few chapters about 44th, which I found particularly unhelpful. Silman took his time choosing the exercises that fit very well the material covered in the chapters. It was a joy to work throu Wow!

How to Reassess your Chess-4th edition-J. Silman

I consider this to be one of the most important books ever written on chess strategy. If it looks good, I will then upload it to chessgames. You could put all the pgn’s in one text file. IM Silman is a world class teacher!

Can a king rexssess a king? Whatever your mastery, you can nibble crumbs of know-how and insight useful in any level of competition. Also you keep mentioning diagrams. I’ll continue to update the diagrams in the drop box link.


I had more trouble getting through this one, for some reason, and I didn’t like the exercises as much. So I don’t know what you are referring to by that. I know some pgn’s for the games are posted editiion I want everthing in one file to make it easy. Just to be clear.

I’ll make a zip file when all the PGN’s are complete to make the dowload faster. If this has already been done ediyion me know so I’m not reinventing the wheel. Guardian Chess Book of the Year Silman gives a wonderful description of putting together imbalances to create a winning position. The first chapter talks about the King, the idea of Opposition and Outflanking. Supposedly Silman completely rewrote the book “from scratch” was the phrase that caught my eye greatly expanded it, rearranged it, chopped out the Basic Endgame chapter the chapter that inexplicably OPENED the 3rd edition!

I have never read a better chess book in my life, and I doubt that I ever will.

It opened my eyes to aspects of the game to which I previously had been oblivious. No trivia or quizzes yet. I think such master piece should come with a pgn link to help follow the book.

How to Reassess Your Chess 4th Edition Jeremy Silman PB

More than any other author, Silman explains how to truly think about chess and provides the fundamental skills necessary to improve your play to the next level. But I editkon do it only once the final file has been created. Once again, I think we get lost in tactics, when the focus of the book is strategy at least in my understanding. I must confess I haven’t ‘read’ this book.

After reading this book, you should be able to assess a big number of positions, by identifying all the described imbalances, which helps a lot when finding plans for the position.

When I have all diagrams complete I will make into one zip file. Oct 11, 4triplezed added it Shelves: For instance, the f This is a great book, but not one that you should read, chdss is a book that should be studied. I have the games but not the illustrations.

I’ll be constantly cheess the PGN’s until I finish reading the book. PGN format is used to delineate a sequence of moves. I think I liked the 3rd edition better though.

I just don’t want to be involved in the process of creating the pgn’s or the file containing them. This is a great book, but not one that you should read, this is a book that should be studied.
