5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Baroque Collection of Romanesque Clarity 15 novembre 1999
Par Robert H. Nunnally Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
The chess opening seems to bring out the sincerest form of flattery in most players. Among any particular group of low-rated players, a high percentage in any community tend to play either the opening that the world champion is playing (such as the mid 1970s, when every 'D' rated player wanted to play the Najdorf Sicilian Poison Pawn variation) or what the local experts and masters play (in one community, the Goring Gambit and Smith-Morra Gambit were considered well-nigh a forced win by a local strong player, resulting in a world of people playing who should have been content with the Colle System or the Bird variation to the Ruy Lopez).
Wincor's book is a classic of teaching the chess player to march to the tune of a different drummer. The style is light, humorous, and aimed less at describing intricate variations than at giving ideas on a new way to play. Wincor's suggested style is "baroque", a deviation from the wild tactics of the e pawn beginner or the boring oversolidity of the 1. d4 2. c4 player.
The influence of this book filters through amateur chess even today, as a minority of fun-seeking explorers move into the B ratings using the odd but very workable ideas contained herein. In the same way that surrealism eventually filtered into mainstream MTV videos, a good day at the Internet Chess Club or any local chess club will net baroque players, who used to be a rarity. Still, second only to Koltanowski's Colle System book, and a nose ahead of Soltis' book setting forth a Slav/Caro-Kann defensive system, this is a book which can help a D player become a B player, and help an E player move towards C. If you haven't read this, let Amazon.com locate it for you, and enjoy!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The game usually goes to the craftiest 22 juillet 2002
Par Jerald R Lovell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Chess being a mental game itself, it necessarily follows that its devotees enjoy mind games when facing opponents. This is an excellent book for such folks. I recommend it highly.

The book covers one offense, the Dutch Stonewall Reversed, and two defenses, The Black Dragon variation of the Sicilian Defense (for playing against a King Pawn opening), and the Queen's Indian, for playing against a queen pawn opening. It explores only these three openings, no more. It is the author's theory, and my own, that it is better to be able to play a few variations very well than a great many variations badly.

Few people see the Dutch Stonewall Reversed. It is a strong, fluid offense, and frequently takes even expert players by surprise. Many times, the so-called superior player recovers too late. AHA!

The two defenses are somewhat more commonly seen, but each has the virtue of shifting momentum to Black in the event of the slightest error by White. Again, that's what any player wants.

The book is eminently readable and fun. It explains the nuances of the three openings and shows you how to play them without drowning you in notation or sterile analysis.

This book has given me a lot of pleasure, and has allowed me to beat players who were easily superior to me under normal circumstances. You will enjoy it a lot. It's not for the real beginner, but you don't have to be Nimzovitch or Fischer, either. Enjoy.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 If it ain't "baroque", don't fix it! 1 juillet 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a fun read. The author explains and discusses a number of opening systems for White and Black (including the King's Indian Attack, Queen's Indian Reversed, Stonewall Attack, and Old Indian Defense)in a light and witty style,with a good deal of verbal discussion of strategy, plans and ideas.
These openings are theoretically inferior -- "less than best". However, if you enjoy playing slow, manuevering, Nimzovich-style chess and are satisfied with reaching a merely equal middlegame, then perhaps you'll find this book worth studying.
