Reseña del editor
Matthew Sadler is one of the UK's strongest ever players. He became a grandmaster at 19, won the British Championship twice and, amongst other amazing achievements, made a gold medal winning score of 101/2/13 on board four for England in the 1996 chess Olympiad. In 2000 Matthew quite full-time chess. However, he re-emerged ten years later in 2010 to play a rapidplay tournament in Wageningen, Holland which he promptly won with 7/7. In 2011 he played in strong international events at Barcelona and Oslo and won them with the Fischer-like scores of 81/2/10 and 8/9 respectively. After a decade away from the game, these results are simply astounding. Matthew's extraordinary ability at chess stems not simply from natural talent but is based on a brilliant aptitude for studying the game. He understands exactly what needs to be studied and how to go about it. In this book he recounts how he organised his preparation for his 'comeback' and from his results the success of his method is self-evident. In this book Matthew shares his secrets and reveals how to: * Incorporate unorthodox openings into your repertoire * Study middlegame situations * Understand what is important in the endgame As well as being an exceptional player Matthew is also a fine writer who conveys his ideas with ease. He has previously written four books for Everyman with his book on the Queen's Gambit Declined winning the British Chess Federation Book of the Year award in 2000. Matthew currently lives and works in Holland.Ver Descripción del producto

This book is a nice little gem.
Sadler hopes that he can save people a lot of time and learn from his methods and use some of his discoveries or "chess secrets" if you will - if you play the Najdorf Sicilian and QGA it's even more relevant but's it's far from being an opening book. I remember trying to go through Polugaevsky's book Grandmaster Preparation which Sadler gave high praise to and just giving up because of so many variations it got boring, I much rather read a book like this that can summarize ideas and tell you how to apply the same ideas to a different opening.
As far as I see till I finish the book this is an excellent addition to positional play in the middlegame but with a unique personal touch and lots of great games to illustrate despite being such a short book, and there is also an endgame chapter which I haven't read yet.
He was famous for his Book Reviews in New in Chess, which showed a profound understanding of the game. His reviews would be discursive. He would present game fragments from his and other players' praxis before returning to the book being reviewed.
He uses a similar approach in this focused book sure to help a advancing player with a good grasp of theory find a repertoire and a plan.
His book is extremely well organized in thought into the following chapters.
1)How discovering ideas in the openings is not a matter of switching on an engine or a database, he explains analyses for a person with an already broad exposure to openings as he makes observations about recurring patterns (such as g5 pushes to secure outpost for Knight on e5) in different middle games from different openings.
2) Introducing new ideas into YOUR openings, a chapter on how you make an opening your own, (as some wit wrote some years ago, it is not that we are too good for the Ruy Lopez, it is that the Ruy Lopez is too good for us). He addresses several emotional attachments to openings that lose you points ( I paraphrase freely), and emphasises technical aspects of openings. How he analyzed the Dutch, showing several games from his own as well as Yusupov's praxis.
3) Playing Unorthodox Openings is perhaps the fairest look at offbeat openings at high level you are ever likely to see. It is not all a bed of roses. Yet, players like Speelman, Sadler, and in our times Nakamura have the nerve to play offbeat openings. What do they get out of it? Here is a good look. The English opening (..b6 and ..e6, with interesting theoretical lines) is amply supported with examples, and to a lesser extent the Pirc/modern complex.
4) Types of thinking in Middlegames is a 16 page essay with exercises that owes much to Dvoretsky. 4 types of thinking. Really useful to guide your choice of plan. These are the sort of stuff not every book talks about. THis is the kind of thing that makes this book a keeper (along with your first My System, or Pawn Power in chess, except this is way more advanced).
Finally 5) and 6) are That Didn't quite work out and Thinking in Endgames.
