Clinch it!: How to Convert an Advantage into a Win in Chess by Cyrus Lakdawala
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 17 MB
Overview: How good are you at bringing in the full point when you hold a clear advantage or are just plain winning? Pondering this question may well evoke some painful memories. Perhaps the single greatest frustration for club-level chess players is that time and again they see wins turn into draws or even losses. The reasons for messing up a winning position are by no means just technical. And the rest is a matter of technique? Not likely, in the real world.
Recklessness, collapsing nerves, relaxing instead of preparing yourself for a long and arduous fight, the inability to cope with a small setback or with a busted opponent who has turned into a fearless desperado: based on four decades of teaching chess Cyrus Lakdawala has identified dozens of thought-provoking reasons why we are throwing away points that should be ours.
