    THIS BOOK IS WRITTEN ENTIRELY IN RUSSIAN

    Alekhine has long earned a reputation not only a brilliant experience, but also the best chess writer and theoretician of the first half of 20th century. Alekhine's Games, which are shining examples of chess creativity, are provided with detailed notes. Alekhine's Heritage is the best commentator of his time - a truly invaluable material for anyone interested in the development of chess and who wants to improve.

    This is the second volume of a two-volume biography of World Chess Champion Alexander Alekhine. This second volume is devoted to the art of the strategic concepts of the First Russian World Champion and his contribution to the theory and practice of chess endings. The book contains more than 170 annotated games and explanations. The final chapter is about the creative community and the views of Alekhine and the Soviet players. This book is designed for advanced players.

    Alexander Alexandrovich Kotov was born 12 August 1913. He was a Soviet chess grandmaster and author. He was Soviet champion, a two-time world title Candidate, and a prolific chess author. Kotov served in high posts in the Soviet Chess Federation and most of his books were written during the period of Cold War between the US and the USSR. Therefore, his works tended to be rather critical of (and occasionally somewhat dismissive toward) American players. Russian players, on the other hand, were presented and described in a particularly favorable light. He died 8 January 1981 in Moscow.

    • How to Calculate Chess Tactics
      A Revealing Look at the Nuts and Bolts of Chess Thought
      Thinking methods are at the heart of the chess struggle, yet most players devote little conscious effort to improving their calculating ability. Much of the previous literature on the subject has presented idealized models that have limited relevance to the hurly-burly of practical chess, or else provide little more than ad hoc suggestions. Here, experienced trainer Valeri Beim strikes a balance by explaining how to use intuition and logic together to solve tactical problems in a methodical way. He also offers advice on when it is best to calculate 'like a machine', and when it is better to rely on intuitive assessment.
