Viewing the ease with which he won, the reader may get the feeling that Capa played chess while his opponents played checkers, or some other game.
If any of this rubs off, our own play will hopefully turn more subtle and harmonious. Had he been ingrained with the fanatical zeal of an Alekhine or a Fischer, then Capa would most certainly have reached the number one spot. The only marker we go by is to gauge who dominated his peers most in his prime. No player ever logged an impossible, mythical performance like Fischer did immediately before his match with Spassky — not even Capablanca.
The Move by Move interactive, question and answer format is designed for the reader to put in a little sweat going through the games. The reader is challenged with exercises in planning, discovering combinations, calculation and critical decisions.

Of course, you are not obligated to do the exercises, but if you do put in the work, there will be a payoff in the end. I became an accidental beneficiary of a Capa-boost in rating. Normally my USCF rating hovers in the range. As soon as I began work on this book I looked at so many Capa games that sometimes the pieces began to merge in my blurred vision!

Such a thing is unheard of for a year-old geezer like me. You know you are old when you have so many candles on your birthday cake that there is no hope of blowing them out. Was this the result of a placebo effect or perhaps rating inflation? So he gets full posthumous credit for my unexpected rating hike. The revelation of a long dead genius still remains available to us today.
Many thanks to editor, Grandmaster John Emms, for offering the opportunity to write a book about my hero. Thanks to Jonathan Tait for the final edit. I hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it. May your play always achieve Capa-like accuracy and harmony.

About this product Product Information Cyrus Lakdawala examines Kramnik's skills in attack and defence, exploiting imbalances, dynamic elements, accumulating advantages and endgame play. Additional Product Features Dewey Edition. Cyrus Lakdawala is establishing himself as one of the best instructive writers in the business, and Kramnik move by move will only enhance his reputation.
I think his greatest strength as an author is getting to the essence of what the average player needs to know about the position before him. He does so with humour and an accessible style, encouraging the reader to think that chess isn't so impenetrable after all, without letting on how deeply he understands the game. I would recommend the book mainly for developing players, say , because they will benefit most; but stronger players will also enjoy it for the great games.
Vladimir Kramnik is a giant of the chess world. He firmly secured his legendary status when he won the World Championship in by defeating the previously dominant Garry Kasparov - the only player ever to do so in a match. Kramnik held on to his crown for seven years, and today he remains one of the World's elite players. In this book, former American Open Champion Cyrus Lakdawala invites you to join him in a study of his favourite Kramnik games.
Lakdawala examines Kramnik's renowned skills in attack and defence, exploiting imbalances, dynamic elements, accumulating advantages and endgame play, and shows how we can all improve by learning from Kramnik's masterpieces. Move by Move provides an ideal platform to study chess. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of knowledge.
Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to improve your chess skills and knowledge.
