Reviews - What do customers think about Modern Chess Planning?
Training puzzles Jul 4, 2007
Grivas provides critical positions many from his own games. He then provides three possible plans. I found it to be a really good training excercise to go through the positions and the solutions. This is a very well done book.
Title is Somewhat Misleading Jun 18, 2007
I'd have to say I was disappointed with this book. The author presents 75 positions and the reader is asked to decide, given three alternatives, the correct plan. There is minimal information about how to form a plan. The plan is determined by the reader. The author follows the Bellin (Test Your Positional Chess) format. Most of the games are the author's. While the book may help your pattern recognition, it won't do much for your planning ability. Bellins book would be my preference.
