Worse, Black's 17 … Bxf2, that Chernev says initiates an unstoppable attack, and that in fact prompted White to resign, overlooks a surprising resource of White's, 18 Bxf7, that would have enabled White to completely equalize what had been a Black-advantage -6.

I also wanted to say that I have improved A LOT lately, not only my results (that for me is secondary in this stage) but in the way I understand the game. No one learns a musical instrument by starting off with the hardest pieces even though they're beautiful; it's best to start with the basics! The games are extremely well chosen, and if the repetitive first move analysis becomes tiresome the rest if perfectly on target. A ideia é genial: "veja aqui os movimentos e A LÓGICA POR TRÁS DOS MOVIMENTOS de partidas que selecionamos".

How fianchettoing kingside actually makes the king safer, despite requiring the g-pawn to be pushed. I learned how to play from my mom as a kid, watched a few YouTube videos as an adult, and figured I could pick it up as I went along.

Chernev has a way with words and always finds something interesting to say about the first move, even though through the course of the 33 games he mostly has words to say about the King's Pawn (1.With that proviso, I would recommend it heartily to anyone just starting to explore the game, and therefore, to scholastic chess teachers as well. First, you can only truly understand what's written if you are actually recreating every move on a chessboard in front of your eyes.

For someone who wants to peel at the hidden complexities of the game, the symbolic representation can work as a deterrent force. Even in intermediate or advanced games, the principle that pawns can't move backwards, that it creates weaknesses, is all still useful because you weigh that up against the benefits of such a move. I remember someone pointing out that the era the games are from makes them easier to umderstand than some more modern games. In this popular classic, the author explains 33 complete games, in detail, move by move, including the reason for each one.Nevertheless, I've found my rating rise from somewhere around 1200 to just over 1500 in the reading of these pages. The book was first published in 1957 so expect a game or two by Capablanca, Tarrasch, Rubenstein and Maroczy. Perhaps it isn't as timeless as it once appeared to me, but it should prove useful to any aspiring player wanting to better understand how to develop logical plans, moves, and thought processes in chess.

My first chess book was a Dover paperback copy of Irving Chernev's "The Most Instructive Games Ever Played".

Chernev's writing style is something I enjoy also and overall I would recommend this book to anyone who still commonly uses and reads Descriptive(English) Notation. Unfortunately I didn't spot this, not starting to read the book until more than 60 days from puchasing si unable to request refund from vendor. My goal in reading books like this is to incorporate into my subconscious as many master game patterns as possible: moves humans make, explanations humans give. I get they want to save space/ink but sadly it seems visual mediums are more suitable for explaining chess moves.I think, without being sure, when I read in my book, Silman-The Amateurs Mind I only move the mainlines, but reading all. I would've liked a summary of all the italicized quotes, because I feel like those are the main key take aways.
