Chess Fundamentals

כריכה קדמית
Harcourt, Brace, 1921 - 244 עמודים
World Chess Champion José Raul Capablanca presents this classic work of chess tactics and strategy. Many regard it as one of the best books of chess instruction written in the 20th century. Capablanca demonstrates essential techniques for all game phases, including how to exploit a passed pawn, how to use knights for attack and how to win by indirect attack. Each piece's strengths are explained and demonstrated in 14 illustrative games, and Capablanca includes a section on general chess theory that can serve as an introduction to the subject for beginning players. Special care is given to the particulars of endgame play, as well as the hidden powers of pawns. Copiously illustrated, this is a great work for players looking to improve their game to keep alongside the chessboard.
