For the last 10 years, GM Lev Alburt has been writing a very special monthly column for the U.S. Chess Federation's magazine, Chess Life. Non-titled readers are asked to contribute their most instructive games, with generous annotations. From dozens of entries each month, Lev chooses for his column one he considers to be of greatest value for CL's readers, adding his own comments and advice.
For this book, Alburt has selected 40 of his best columns, arranged them by themes, cut some material - and added much more, all to make A Fresh Look at Chess both truly instructional and fun to read.
Most chess books have been written by GM's to help amateurs, both beginners and seasoned players, to understand chess and to play it better - using games by other grandmasters. A Fresh Look at Chess offers a new, complementary, and very effective approach.
