Présentation de l'éditeur

Charles Hertan, an experienced chess coach from Massachusetts, has made an astonishing discovery: the failure to consider key winning moves is often due to human bias, since your brain tends to disregard many winning moves because they are counter-intuitive or look unnatural. Charles Hertan?s radically different approach is: use COMPUTER EYES and always look for the most forcing move first! By studying forcing sequences according to Hertan?s method you will develop analytical precision, improve your tactical vision, overcome human bias and staleness, and enjoy the calculation of difficult positions. By recognizing moves that matter, you will win more games!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 TOPISSIME ! 14 mars 2011
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
[...]
Ceux qui, comme moi, raffolent de tactique, devraient apprécier ce livre splendide, que j'ai découvert l'année dernière et que je vous avais promis de commenter... La couverture un peu racoleuse ne rend pas bien compte du sérieux et de la valeur de ce livre, publié en 2008 aux éditions New In Chess. L'auteur, Charles Hertan, ne cherche ni plus ni moins qu'à nous enseigner comment ne plus passer à côté de coups forcés et cite en exemple l'ordinateur en nous encourageant à développer un "regard d'ordinateur"! Dans sa préface, le GM Joel Benjamin écrit : "La beauté de la réalisation de Hertan réside dans la qualité à la fois des positions choisies, et de l'analyse. Les exemples sont utiles pour les plus forts maîtres, mais sont expliqués et analysés à un niveau qui débloque leurs mystères, même pour le joueur de club moyen."
Le thème principal développé dans le livre, comme le suggère le titre, consiste à trouver des suites de coups forcées. Selon la définition de Hertan "Un coup forcé est (tout simplement !) un coup qui limite les options de l'adversaire". A la fin du livre l'auteur révèle l'origine de sa démarche. Il explique qu'au cours de ses nombreuses années d'enseignement d'échecs, il a constaté que ses élèves au niveau varié, (du débutant au candidat-maître), passaient régulièrement à côté de certains coups forcés critiques.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book humbled me. 15 juillet 2008
Par ChessFire - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I used to think I was pretty good at tactics and calculating variations..until I got this book. I've come to see that I have a biased "play it safe" mode that keeps me from seeing the dynamic potential in alot of positions. And I am terrible at calculating with precision. As the author says, close enough is not good enough...you must strive for precision. This book is helping me in each of those areas. The examples are HARD. Usually when you get a book on tactics the first few chapters are a breeze. Not so here. These are advanced, difficult problems, that have FORCED me to go where I haven't gone before: 1) looking for and analyzing moves I wouldn't even have considered before 2) calculating with precision. It's like having a personal chess coach in alot of ways. I also like that there are typically a number of examples of one theme (ie. corridor mate..back rank..etc) grouped together to help you in pattern matching for your own games.

Overall a terrific book! Whenever you find a book that helps identify and remedy a serious area of chess weakness it is well worth the money!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Tactics Calculation Workbook 14 juillet 2008
Par Bede - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is an interim review as I'm less than half way through the book but really loving it. The aim of the book is to overcome human bias in ruling out outrageous 'computer' moves that might lead to an instant win or gain of material. I suppose I am as guilty as the next person of playing automatic recaptures and rejecting sacrificial continuations that appear to peter out. However in my case, the main reason is that I am a lazy analyser.
The reason I like this book so much is the clarity and helpfulness of the analysis. Each of the over 600 positions in the book is shown with a white or black square next to it indicating who is to move. Hertan then gives the main line of the solution. He also explains why plausible options don't work and gives all the reasonable alternative lines. And he does this all in a very concise way.
The way I am using the book is as to improve my analysis skills. I study each diagram with the solution that follows it covered up. Then I compare my analysis with Hertan's to see what important lines I missed, or where I gave up on a line too soon.
This is definitely not a beginner's book on tactics. It assumes you know basic tactics likes pins, forks and back rank mate combinations. As a puzzle book, the positions are more difficult than Reinfeld's 1001 books but not too much harder. The real differentiator for me is the quality of the explanations.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Should Be Converted to Software 13 septembre 2008
Par C. Amari - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Charles Hertan and New In Chess publishers are missing a great opportunity to convert this book to training software. A case can be made that Hertan's book is more pedagogically focussed than CT - Art 3.0, which dominates that field.

Relative to most other tactics books, this one actually advocates a straightforward thinking method involving forcing moves and, to a better degree than many similar efforts, does not focus on mating combinations almost to the complete exclusion of tactical opportunities for material gain, which are likely more commonplace in practice. "Stock" tactical motifs are covered in the first two chapters. I dare say that 98% of chess tactic books merely provide the information in those two chapters with varying degrees of examples. In this 400-page effort, Hertan moves well beyond that to more broadly consider and categorize forcing moves generally, many of which do not easily fit into traditional typologies.

I'm not necessarily convinced that Hertan's advocated postition of always addressing oneself first to hard calculation of forcing lines, rather than relying initially on more judgmental assessments to identify candidate moves, would survive a cost (in time) benefit analysis in many situations. Accordingly, I am in turn not necessarily convinced of his assertion that "A deep study of forcing moves is probably the single most important task toward achieving chess mastery." Some positions present a bewildering array of forcing moves and, in Hertan's explanations, this fact can sometimes be conveniently ignored, with solutions presented as if the winning move was necessarily the most forcing, which is not really the case. In these cases finding the winning move likley is the product of some process other than raw calculation of a large number of equally forcing moves. Likewise, the separate concept of "computer eyes" is gimmicky and unnecessary to his thesis -- the term is used in connection with the unremarkable concept that identifying the most forcing moves may include moves that are counterintuitive to humans, and that the human bias against considering such moves is not a tendency shared by chess engines. (While I really have no clue, I gather that chess computers in fact do not consider forcing moves first, and thus the computer allusion has no particular relevance to Hertan's thesis.)

This is not to say that Hertan's unique perspective, argument regarding thinking methods, and wealth of fresh examples from practical play, is not appreciated, or that adding increased consideration to forcing sequences will not contribute something of real practical value to those who need to sharpen their alertness to tactics. Hertan suggests at the end of the book that he wished it could be one's first book on tactics. Very few of Hertan's readers are likely to be blank slates, but I suspect that the greater value of his book will be to add new and useful dimensions to the play of those of us whose tactical approach runs somewhat in a rut.

Not insignificantly, the layout and production values of this book are above average. Returning to my initial point, the only way to materially improve the presentation would be to convert the book to training software.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not just another Tactics book 16 juillet 2008
Par A. Woodby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I've got plenty of tactics books, even tactical programs like ct-art (which is awesome btw). But there is something magical about this book! The tactics are so rich and vibrant and truely do change the way you look at positions. You'll find after going through about 50 of these puzzles (out of 650 I think) that you are yourself looking at the board differently. Also this book is thick for a modern day chess book less than 20 bucks, I was shocked to get this book in my hands and discover how the publishing company didnt "cheap out" on the size or text like they were going out of business... Buy this book, you wont regret it...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 puzzles for the more advance 21 mai 2009
Par Voltron - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I love chess puzzle books but have found that many are basically the same and once you get a grasp of them your stuck not learnign any new. EG there are so many books on basic tactics skewer, deflection, etc, but they are very basic, and once you have work with several book your not learning anything new. What I really liked about this book is that the puzzles are more complicated. I have been searching for a book that was more difficult and this one did the trick. Many of the puzzles have longer line which at least forced me to think even further ahead. It gave me a different perscpective about the chess board. I am not a master but before working on puzzles I was 1200. After doing many puzzle books I made to 1500, but have been stuck there for a long time. After completing this book. I started beating stronger players and now am hovering around the 1800 mark. So if your a master or stronger then you may not like this book, but is your like me who was stuck at 1500, this will take you to the next level.
I recommend this book highly
