Chess for Scoundrels - Davies
About the Chess for Scoundrels - Davies
Psychology is one of the most important aspects of chess, yet most players put themselves at a serious disadvantage by ignoring this aspect of the game. Being nice is all very well, but in the war zone of the chess board a more ruthless approach is required. The fact of the matter is that a good chess player must be something of a scoundrel in order to survive. On this DVD Davies discusses the various ways by which a player can conduct psychological warfare, from inducing Pavlovian responses to insulting the opposition with provocative moves. A knowledge of these methods is essential for the serious tournament competitor, if only to avoid becoming another victim.
Nigel Davies has been a Grandmaster since 1993 and is a former British Open Quickplay and U21 Champion. He had more than 30 years international tournament experience and is the author many other best-selling DVDs for ChessBase.
