Overview

Lights! Action! Chess! Chess Movies represents a new idea in the Pandolfini Chess Library series. It offers instructional material with every single move diagrammed and explained. Thus a chessboard and pieces are not needed to follow through. This makes it possible to rely solely on the book itself, as one would with a text on tactics and problems, without having to set up the positions, even though the present volume, Quick Tricks, contains games of ten full moves or more. It's almost as if one is sitting in a movie theater, watching the film roll by, with the narrative carried along by subtitles. But whereas a film seen in the theater just keeps going, here you can "stop" the action and take time thinking about what you're seeing and what's being explained to you, as if you were home watching on your own DVD. In this first offering of the series, Quick Tricks, the reader (viewer) is provided with a collection 64 neat traps and shots in the opening, illustrations often stemming from the practice of the world's best players. There's a variety too, so that you can sample different openings and variations. All you have to do is read the beginning paragraph, sit back in your living room, on your favorite flight, commuter bus or train ride, and pleasure your way through each informative film. It's also a great way to prepare for upcoming competition. Just find a comfortable chair and spend a few hours watching, learning, and enjoying your way into shape.
