SHORTLISTED FOR 2011 CHESSCAFE.COM BOOK OF THE YEAR

Imagine you are a club player who has been given the opportunity to talk at length with a famous grandmaster. How would you make the most of this opportunity?

Club players are unaware of the subtleties in Grandmaster chess. Great players can analyze chess at a depth that is unfathomable to amateurs. However, having reached such a high level can make it difficult to understand what is lacking in the mind of the amateur.

Lessons with a Grandmaster bridges this gap between grandmaster and amateur through a series of conversations between teacher, the renowned Grandmaster Boris Gulko, and student Dr. Joel R. Sneed, a professor of psychology and amateur chess player. The lessons are based on Gulko's own battles against fellow grandmasters, and there is particular focus on strategy, tactics and the role of psychology in chess competition.

  • Learn from the chess games of Boris Gulko
  • Typical questions you would ask a Grandmaster - answered!
  • Improve your understanding of chess strategy and psychology.

UPDATE: Since working on this book Dr. Sneed has gained 200 rating points and tied for 1st place in the Marshall Chess Club Under 2000 tournament with 4 out of 5 and a performance rating of 2100! His rating before the book was 1613 and now his rating is 1813. He also earned his first norm for the 1st category title.
