About The True Lies in Chess - Fabrego

This book was shortlisted for the ECF book of the year award 2008.

For Lluis Comas Fabrego chess is about more than just winning as many games as possible, it is a creative search for the truth. In True Lies in Chess Comas Fabrego takes on the challenging task of separating the truth from lies in chess literature. Guided by many practical examples and clear advice, the readers will learn how to reduce the complexity of chess towards the essential features of each position, and so improve their play. The author argues that in modern chess the tendency to prefer concrete analysis to the written word is dangerous. Humans are incapable of finding the correct move by brute-force calculation like a computer. We must simplify the problem by focusing on the elements that our judgement tells us are most significant. Comas Fabrego shows how his creative approach has helped him find many novelties in the opening, particularly concentrating on the Na6-lines of the King's Indian in which he is a renowned expert. Lluis Comas Fabrego is a grandmaster and has twice been Spanish Champion. This is his first book for Quality Chess.

  • 'one of the best books published in the last ten years' - Andy Ansel, Chess Today
  • 'as Jonathan Rowson thinks, serious improvement at chess can only take place if we free ourselves from habitual patterns of positional assessment, there can be no better guide to this 'defamiliarization' process than Comas. And True Lies is also a delight to read... a treasure-trove of highlights' - James Vigus, British Chess Magazine
  • ...There are several other useful novelties, each worth the cost of the book... Highly Recommended - IM John Donaldson
  • a delightful smorgasbord... very well produced, as can be expected from Quality Chess... Grandmaster Comas Fabreg's first book... I hope he is already working on another one. - Rick Kennedy, ChessVille
