I picked up Chess for Idiots today. While the foreword was a bit difficult to get through, I have full confidence that soon I will slay the dragon Grimslade.

I guess you haven't read much of it yet. Fortunately, you still have most of your pieces in this game...

I did much better this game. At least, I felt like it. It's coming together very slowly.

The real secret to win is to use a chess bot program, like what many online poker players do.

I have to say, for all past yearning by RJ and others for his return, this incarnation of Ernest is rather underwhelming.


Perhaps ImageWIS should have dropped by more often.

I should really use my games against him as a learning resource, but I'm normally so pissed and dumbfounded I can't learn from it.

Kwilkinson. This will be the only useful thing I've ever said to you. Check out The Amateur's Mind. This is THE beginner chess book:

http://www.amazon.com/Amateurs-Mind-...2387628&sr=8-1

It goes through the misconceptions that amateurs have about the game and shows why they're wrong. You can't learn from GM games because there are so many lines that they simply don't consider because of prior analysis. Those, however, are the lines that amateurs play and Jeremy Silman shows you why they're wrong and how to beat opponents who play them. I would give you my copy, but it's that valuable of a book. Very, very, eye opening and easy to follow (same goes for his other book, How to Reassess Your Chess).

At the same time or after read My System by Aron Nimzovich.

Cool, thanks. I just had it sent interlibrary loan to my local branch. If I like it, I'll pick it up--- at $14.00, why not?
Thanks for the rec.

I love this forum sewer system - it's working really well. I wish there was such a thing IRL

Silman is good, but I think a lot of amateurs find it hard to take his advice. How Not to Play Chess is a short and entertaining book from which a few people here could profit.

There are at least two books with this title. You mean the Reinfeld one, or something else?

I mean Znosko-Borovsky. I wasn't aware there were others.
