Yakov Neishtadt "Chess training"

Postby sergeyvl » Sun Nov 20, 2011 8:00 pm

We have a new book in our site:

Yakov Neishtadt "Chess training"
The best advice for chess players who want to improve quickly is: get better at tactics! Because the vast majority of amateur games is decided through tactics you will immediately start beating more opponents when you improve your tactical skills. This book presents more than 700 decisive combinations from tournament practice and is a self-tutor and a sparring-partner in one. Experienced Russian chess master Yakov Neishtadt has selected those examples that have the biggest instructional value for club players.

The full base of 1237 "mate in 2" puzzles are available on our site in CDB format!

pbchess works with it's own format (CDB) starting from 1.2.4. It also can import bases in PGN format (convert it into CDB)!

pbchess 1.2.4 for Onyx Boox and Amazon Kindle will be ready in a few days. After that I'll concentrate my effort on the pocketbook version!
