Download e-book for iPad: Geheimnisse moderner Schacheröffnungen Band 2 (German by John Watson

By John Watson

ISBN-10: 1904600751

ISBN-13: 9781904600756

"Ich empfehle die beiden Bände von Geheimnisse moderner Schacheröffnungen an all diejenigen, die ihr Verständnis der Eröffnungen und des Schachs im Allgemeinen ernsthaft verbessern wollen." - Carsten Hansen, www.chesscafe.com

Für viele Schachspieler bedeutet das Studium der Eröffnungstheorie äußerst harte Arbeit. Es ist schwierig zu wissen, was once wichtig ist und was once nicht, wann spezielles Wissen unerlässlich ist, oder wann ein eher generelles Verständnis gefragt ist. Wenn die Eröffnungsphase vorüber ist, weiß ein Spieler tragischerweise oft nicht, welchem Plan er folgen soll oder warum sich seine Figuren auf den Feldern befinden, auf die er sie gezogen hat.

John Watson versucht Schachspielern eine holistischere und tiefgründigere Sicht der Eröffnungen zu vermitteln. In seinen vorherigen Büchern über Schachstrategie Geheimnisse der modernen Schachstrategie und Schachstrategie in Aktion hat er viele Konzepte erklärt, die für das moderne Schach charakteristisch sind. Er tat das zudem auf eine für Vereinsspieler verständliche Weise. Hier tut er das Gleiche für die Eröffnungen. Er beginnt mit grundlegenden Ideen, die auf alle Eröffnungen angewendet werden können und erläutert in der Folge fortgeschrittenere Ideen, die für eine wesentliche Spielstärkeverbesserung unentbehrlich sind.

Watson gibt einen umfangreichen Überblick über die paintings und Weise, wie die Spitzenspieler die Eröffnung tatsächlich behandeln, und präsentiert kein idealisiertes und vereinfachtes Modell. Dieser Band konzentriert sich auf die Damenbauern-Eröffnungen und wird Schachspieler dazu bringen, gründlich darüber nachzudenken, wie sie ihre Partien beginnen. Er bietet sowohl Unterhaltung als auch anspruchsvolles Studienmaterial in Eröffnungen wie Nimzoindisch, Königsindisch und den gesamten Damengambit-Komplex.

"Eines der überzeugendsten Kapitel in Geheimnisse moderner Schacheröffnungen Band 2 ist das über das Abgelehnte Damengambit. Insbesondere hat mir Watsons Behandlung der Abtauschvariante gefallen, die er in die Karlsbader Variante (Sf3) und Moderne Abtauschvariante (Sge2) unterteilt. Es ist noch nicht so lange her, dass Weiß entweder kurz rochierte und auf einen Minoritätsangriff mit b4-b5 gespielt oder lang rochierte und dann auf einen Königsangriff gespielt hat. Heutzutage fügen Sie den Plan mit e3-e4 im Zentrum zu spielen hinzu- manchmal in Verbindung mit b4 (siehe Kasparow-Short aus ihrem Weltmeisterschaftskampf 1993) und prophylaktische Züge wie a3 und h3." - IM John Donaldson, www.jeremysilman.com

Der Internationale Meister John Watson ist einer der angesehensten Schachautoren auf der Welt. Mit seinem bahnbrechenden vierbändigen Werk über die Englische Eröffnung festigte er in den 80er Jahren seinen Ruf und hat seitdem eine Reihe hochklassiger Bücher verfasst. Im Jahre 1999 wurde Geheimnisse der modernen Schachstrategie, Watsons erstes Buch für den Gambit-Verlag, von der britischen Schachföderation als "Buch des Jahres" und von der Schachföderation der united states mit dem Preis für das beste Buch ausgezeichnet. Zu seinen Schülern gehört der Juniorenweltmeister von 1997, Tal Shaked.

"Das Buch hat mich voll und ganz überzeugt! Watson hat das Kunststück fertig gebracht, die wichtigsten Eröffnungen nach 1.d4 übersichtlich und in die Tiefe gehend zu analysieren ohne das Gesamtkonzept aus den Augen zu verlieren. Das Werk wird auch in ferner Zukunft nichts an Aktualität einbüßen; wenn Watson dem Leser auf quick eight Seiten zum Beispiel die Sämischvariante im Königsinder näher erläutert, spürt guy das erhabene Gefühl, einen wahren Klassiker in Händen zu halten. Vielleicht klingt es ein wenig übertrieben aber ich halte John Watson für eine paintings modernen Aron Nimzowitsch. Wie Nimzowitsch, so schreibt auch Watson Bücher, aus denen nachfolgende Generationen von Schachliebhabern ihren Nutzen ziehen können. Uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert." - Martin Rieger, www.freechess.de
