What chess books I am going to study in Q1/2010

booksq1In my previous post Chess goals for 2010 I mentioned the most important directions which I would like to go to improve my chess this year.

To achieve an improvement it is necessary to study chess games and/or books. As probably many of you, I have quite good chess library, but I have not go through all my books. So once I am goign to take chess seriously this year it is good to create a list of books I would like to read and/or play through. Of course, the list of books should be corresponding to my training goals.

One of them is “improvement in chess endings” and in positional play in general.

I choose three books for this purpose:

  • Selected games 1969 – 1977 by Anatoly Karpov (more than 50 deeply anonated Karpov’s games)
  • Chess endings – Essential knowledge by Yuri Averbakh
  • Chess strategy for club players by Herman Grooten

And because I would like to avoid to losing “tactical eye” I will go through Chess Training Pocket Book II by Lev Alburt and Al Lawrence – great selection of tactic puzzles.
