Información oficial:
International Master Jonathan Hawkins was a relatively slow starter in the world of chess.Learning the game at the age of eight, he was a keen junior who won a number of local tournaments. But by his own admission, ‘by the time I was in my mid-teens my age-to-playing-strength ratio was distinctly average.’

He started to study chess very seriously in his late teens and achieved a rapid rise through the ranks. He became a FIDE Master in 2008 and earned the title of International Master in 2010. 2011 brought Jonathan two Grandmaster norms. One of them was earned at the super-strong British Championship, in which he outscored numerous Grandmasters to share third place.
How did Jonathan Hawkins manage to go from being an average tournament competitor to a player on the brink of clinching the Grandmaster title? It took just three years for him to become a FIDE Master, an International Master and to achieve his first two Grandmaster norms.
The secret was knowing what to study and how to learn as efficiently as possible. Focusing his attention firmly on the endgame, Jonathan devised a number of building blocks and identified a number of very important areas of study. The result of his hard work was a meteoric rise through the ranks, as he became firmly established as a prominent GM killer on the English tournament circuit.
These pages reveal the secrets of his notebooks for the first time. IM Hawkins presents special material aimed to help you become a much better practical player, one armed with a deeper understanding of key aspects of chess.
A careful study of the lessons presented in this book should enable the chess student to gain a significant improvement in both performance and rating.

The Greatest Ever Chess Strategies by Sam Collins

Un nuevo libro dedicado a la mejora estratégica en ajedrez de la mano del experto IM Sam Collins por la factoría everymanchess. De entrada me parecía un título más, pero visto el pdf que aporta la editorial (este tipo de detalles, como los vídeos, formatos en tapa dura,interacción... en fin todo lo que es "marketing relacional" es algo de lo que deberían tomar nota las editoriales españolas) parece realmente un libro interesante y trabajado que seguro que aporta valor añadido a cualquier ajedrecista. Me gusta el comentario totalmente lógico del campeón del mundo Anand en la introducción del libro y los ejemplos que muestra el IM Sam Collins pues ayudan a convertir este trabajo en un título sugerente....

IIn this book Sam Collins examines key games from both the classical and modern eras. He analyses the major strategic ideas that have stood the test of time and notes their considerable influence on his own games. Studying classic examples from great players allows us to create a personal library of standard ideas.

Crucially, it helps us find the right path much more quickly than we would by relying on calculation alone.

The Dynamic Benko Gambit An Attacking Repertoire for Black by Sergey Kasparov

Después de competir con relativo éxito en el fantástico open sub2300 de Calvia (Palma de Mallorca), alcanzando el subcampeonato retomo el hilo del blog con un nuevo título para los jugadores de ataque con negras por excelencia, dedicado al gambito benko. El libro viene avalado por su éxito en la edición rusa y detrás de está el experimentado gran maestro Sergey Kasparov. Podeis ver la calidad de la obra en el pdf informativo que aporta la editorial. La única mala noticia es que no estará disponible hasta dentro de 2 meses para su envío, salvo sorpresa, como nos pasa por desgracía con los títulos de la editorial newinchess....

Información oficial:
The Benko Gambit is a great opening for those who like aggressive chess. Black sacrifices a pawn for active play on the queen¬side and his initiative often continues into the endgame. That’s why the opening is very popular among club players, but also World Champions such as Veselin Topalov, Vishy Anand and Garry Kasparov have played the Benko.

Sergey Kasparov has practiced the Benko Gambit himself for many years. He knows all the subtleties of Black’s and White’s plans in detail. In lively, personal and highly instructive prose he presents a complete repertoire, with many new concepts, for Black.

Kasparov helps the reader to get a firm grip on this opening. He does not present endless computer variations but concentrates on ideas and concepts. After studying The Dynamic Benko Gambit, amateurs as well as professionals will be much more dangerous attackers!

Grandmaster Sergey Kasparov (1968) was born in Baku, AzeRbaijan, and now lives in Belarus. He has won many tournaments throughout the world and is a regular contributor to the New In Chess Yearbooks.
