It also has to be said that some of Chernev's advice is a tad suspect. No trivia or quizzes yet. For me this filled the gap between the Masters' books that i do not understand talking about positions 6 moves down the line, and beginners' books that tell you how the knight moves. Outstanding book for the beginning chess player. Highly recommended to any enthusiast who wants to build a platform to be more than just a hobby player.

Modern chess is a little bit different and to understand why GMs break the rules could be interesting. Considering that the books is written for Beginners it would have been helpful to at least outline the path or to choose a completely different game. Granted, the book was originally written in the s, so we don't have the pleasure of seeing Chernev's reaction to games by the likes of Fischer, Tal, and their contemporaries.
It was a mandatory hands-on course, my choice of shop or electronics, but the school year was —Bobby Fischer had just won the world championship—and apparently the school administration accepted the excuse that the course would have interfered with my daily chess games. This post is long enough. That being said I can't much explain why I stalled out just past halfway through kogical I am actively seeking irivng improve my chess.
If you continue to use this site we will assume that you are happy with it. Do you have a source for Nunn's criticism, so that we can know exactly what his points are? Learn arithmetic before you tackle algebra.
Jan 04, Tahta rated it it was amazing. It is most likely that they can't form plans of attack yet! It's a terrific first book because the commentator Chernev explains the logical thought process, or at times lack thereof, behind the moves in classic games.
In fact, one of the games, Blackburne-Blanchard, probably gained me rating points in my class days. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
Logical Chess is pages long with no diagrams -- clearly not a book for beginners. While they may not be for all those who end up being grandmasters like Loyical, I think they are worthwhile to thousands like me who have chernnev learning this game because of their influence. To right this caissic wrong, GM Nunn produced his own book, Grandmaster Chess Move By Movefrom which the quotes in the previous paragraph are drawn, and which is fifty years more up-to-date hcess Logical Chess.
Chernev targets primarily players who are not masters and therefore need first principles hammered home, early and often.
When the year began cherneg was a better player than I was; as the fall term passed we became roughly equal; by the end of the year he could hardly get a draw from me. Really he is only trying to direct their attention to the right topics, such as piece activity, piece coordination, king safety, time, space, squares, files, diagonals, color complexes, and so on, to furnish the empty rooms of their minds with necessary terminology and to provide a starting place for their own investigations.
Your responses are great too. Annotations are all under copyright. That being said I can't much explain why I stalled out just past halfway t This is a great book for chfrnev. Feb 9, 9. May 15, Jason rated it really liked it.
Logical Chess: Move By Move (Chernev) - COMPLETE
Refresh and try again. Chess books really need to get into the 21st century. I have an idea for you and others who are asking a lot of questions to consider, for which see this post on chess.
Overall, sure, it isn't a perfect book in some aspects, but as a tool to teach the basic cbess of the game and how to play in general, what the plans are, it's a great book.
