About The Simple Winning Chess - Baker

In this entertaining and instructive book, an experienced player and trainer provides a wealth of common-sense guidance on all aspects of chess. The first step towards self-improvement is self-assessment, and so Baker starts off with advice on assessing your own strengths and weaknesses. He then discusses how to form and improve your opening repertoire, and how to prepare for competitive play. Next comes advice on how to think at the board, how to cope with time-pressure and chessboard psychology. A welcome feature is a summary of the most important rules of chess that competitive players must know. Baker also discusses how to learn from your games and how to study chess using books and computers, or with the help of a trainer.

Author Chris Baker, International Master, Arbiter and National Coach, is the trainer of the Welsh junior team and a fully qualified arbiter. His first book, A Startling Chess Opening Repertoire, has proved extremely popular.
