Jacob Aagaard

Sample pages (pdf)

In today's computer age many old ideas about chess have been overturned or, at least, revised. Here I.M. Jacob Aagaard casts his eye on defensive methods in the light of modern developments. He considers defensive thinking through concepts such as unforcing thinking, the method of elimination and prophylaxis before moving on to discuss defensive methods of use to the practical player. All these ideas are illustrated with examples from modern play.

The second, larger, part of the book consists of 200 diagrammed exercises, of increasing difficulty, in the art of defensive play. Detailed discussion of these positions can be found in the "solutions" section. The emphasis throughout is on modern, post-computer age, ways of thinking. The aim is to improve your game and enjoy solving some very challenging puzzles at the same time!

I.M Jacob Aagaard is one of the most successful chess writers of the present day with several highly regarded books to his name.

Published 2006, softback, 298 pages.
