Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

"This entertaining collection will certainly help to broaden the reader's 'tactical vocabulary'" - GM Jon Speelman, The Independent

Very occasionally, a chess move is played that astonishes the whole world. It may be a move of astounding complexity, unearthly beauty, deep paradox ... or all three. The move is discussed and analysed around the world as chess-players attempt to fathom both why the move works, and how on earth anyone thought of it in the first place.

In this book, John Emms has selected, from hundreds of candidates, the 200 most amazing chess moves of all time. In each case, the reader is given the chance to try to find the move for himself - making this one of the most challenging chess puzzle books ever published. He provides full solutions, focusing on what can be learned from each Amazing Move, and what made it so hard to see.

These moves are not, on the whole, completely beyond the comprehension of ordinary players. A standard reaction to these Amazing Moves is "Of course! Why didn't I see that?" By studying this book, you will both improve your chess, and increase your chance of becoming the proud player of an Amazing Move, rather than being the dumbfounded victim.

"I like this book very much. Emms's commentaries are always interesting and complete... And the positions are excellent" - GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess

John Emms is one of England's strongest grandmasters, and an experienced trainer. He is also a skilful and versatile writer: he has several opening monographs and general guides to his credit, and authored the hugely popular work, The Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book.

"'The deep and mysterious' along with Emms's 'top twenty' will simply amaze and hopefully also inspire readers to look for that amazing move in their own games. As the games in this work show, although the top grandmasters do produce many of those amazing moves, so too can a club player, whilst finding just one of these incredible moves should provide readers with much confidence. This work can be seen as simply a very challenging puzzle book, but it is indeed far more than that and I am confident that readers, assisted by Emms's excellent explanations, will thoroughly enjoy and be inspired by each of these two hundred amazing moves" - IM Richard Palliser, BCF Chess Moves

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting for an intermediate chess player 9 janvier 2011
Par Actuary_E - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The puzzles in this book may be suited for stronger players, but if you're intermediate, do not be deterred. This book has helped me think ahead beyond my comfort level, and recently I've been correct more often than not. The amount of research and preparation for this book is impressive. Many of the games are between obscure players, and not all of the solutions have tidy endings. In other words, a brilliant move may lead to checkmate, but 10 moves down the road. The author goes through the flowchart progression in detail (e.g. "at this point, Black could do X, but White would respond with Y and the game would soon become hopeless"). Some are solid, "best of a bad situation" saves, others are brilliant gems. This is more instructive than simpler "mate in 3" type puzzles. Finally, this book is valuable because the puzzles are very different. If you always play a certain style, the situations presented may not be something you'd see often, if at all.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent book that I love 30 août 2015
Par eugdog106 - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
An excellent book that I love. Here though are a couple of cons
1) amazing moves are a subjective matter. Or as the author himself puts it one mans meat is another mans poison. Solutions the author labeled as being brilliant I did not find particularly impressive on certain occasions.
2) Some of these are ultra famous. for example 21, 22, 175, 176, 14.
3) could have been a larger book. 200 positions isn't many. Perhaps the author may want to augment the book with 50 positions in a later edition.
that said I loved the book and some of my favorite ones are 4, 7, 10 23, 52 67, and 76. Also my favorite position thus far was 185, I thought that it was one of the most beautiful combinations I've ever seen. In puzzle 7 there are alternative variations the author did not give. These are 1)e6 f6 2)exd7 kd8 3)dxc8 (Q) kxc8 4) Qx f8 Kc7 5)Qd6+ kc8 6) Qd8# also 1) e6 f6 2) exd7 Bxd7 3) Re1 +Kd8 4) Qxf8+ Kc7 5) Bf4 +Kc6 6) Qc5 # or 5) ...Kb6 6)Qc5+ Ka6 7) Qa5 # and Finally. 1)e6 f6 2) exd7 Nxd7 3) Re1+ Kd8 4) Qe7 + Kc7 5)Qd6+ Kd8 6) Qxf8 + Kc7 7) Qd6 + Kd8 8)Bxf6+ Qxf6 9) Qxf6+ Kc7 10) Qd6+ Kd8 11) Re7 also if 3)...Ne5 4)Rxe5 fxe5 5)Qe7# (I figured those lines out by myself). also A.J. Goldsby I... claimed that, "there are no easy ones here". However, that is an incorrect claim. Certain positions like # 10 or 13 are relatively easy while others such as # 181 are suitable for 2700 + players (indeed, I distinctly felt that I could never find such a move).

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Many moves that look (too) familiar... 25 mai 2017
Par Michael Schroeder - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Strange, as many of his amazing moves look very familiar. I don't read a lot about chess, don't even play regularly, just appreciate the brilliancy of extraordinary moves. Recently, I have been reading Tim Krabbe's chess blog, not sure if that could be the reason...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Emms ... on great chess moves. 30 octobre 2003
Par A.J. Goldsby I - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Before you read my review, you should know that I am a Life-Master of Chess.
And lately, it seems I have been bashing books - my reviews have generated a lot of e-mail - some has been rather negative. But I am always honest, and I always try to point out any flaws or mistakes that I find. As the man says: "I call 'em the way I see 'em."
So it is with a great deal of pure joy that I tell you ... I LOVED THIS BOOK!!
(In fact, I have created several new web pages ... just with the material that this book contains. With a search engine, you should find it easily.)
This book is NOT perfect; I have found quite a few errors. For example: on page # 168, (second column); the note after move after move 35.Ne6, the author gives: "Also losing is 35.Rdb1, Nh3+; 36.Ke1," etc. BUT 35...Nh3 is NOT the best move. (35...Ne4 is MUCH better.) In fact, ...Nh3 is NOT even check!! <giggle>
And I do not entirely approve of the author's "Top Ten." #1 is from a game where the loser said it was, "one of the worst games he ever played." (But all losers might say this!) His number five is almost an exact copy, (in type, AND theme); to his number one. And on it goes. Games from lesser-known players, games of questionable content, moves that are NOT even real double-exclams. (Real mistakes are the lack of some simple, thorough player and position indexes.)
BUT!!!! All these are minor quibbles, really. (The author covers this ground in his intro.) Consider all the really FANTASTIC THINGS that this book offers:
# 1.) 200 of the BEST - and most astounding - chess moves ever played;
# 2.) EVERY phase of the game is covered. (Opening, middle-game, end-game.);
# 3.) Some really GREAT analysis, I estimate the author worked at least a year on this book. The analysis of some of the moves (alone) ... is worth the price of the book! The author holds NOTHING back!! In one of the examples, the author points out things like themes, recurring tactics, and opening traps!!
Chess IS tactics. And this book is really all about tactics. And there are no easy ones in here. I had my daughter pick about 30 problems at random. Half of these I knew, they are from fairly well-known chess games. But of the ones I did not already know the answer to, I correctly solved only three problems!! (I don't count problems where I guessed the solutions.) If a Master needs to work on this area, how about you?
At last - a FUN book, that if used intelligently - will help you get better at chess. And once you have spent some time with this book, you will have a smile almost as big as mine! Outstanding!!
