Your chess module can do a lot more than calculate variants!

Every chess player, from club level to professional level, can improve in their games using modules. That's the message of Matthew Sadler's exciting new book, based on many years of experience with the world's best chess software. You may not be able to replicate their dazzling deep calculations, but your module can do so much more for you than just check variants!

Sadler complements these generic training methods with concrete techniques. It explains how the best modules address crucial middlegame topics, such as entrenched pieces, "attack rhythm", piece exchange, rook pawn march, queen versus pieces and much more. It also opens the eyes to the typical strategies that the modules found and refined in popular openings such as King's India, Grünfeld, Slavic, French and Sicilian.

Sadler illustrates his lessons with a collection of fantastic games, explained with his characteristic enthusiasm. For the first time, the superhuman powers of the chess module have been decoded for the benefit of all players, in a rich and very instructive book.

Matthew Sadler he's a grandmaster and former british champion. With co-author Natasha Regan, Sadler won the prestigious Book of the Year award from the English Chess Federation for its worldwide bestseller: "Game Changer: AlphaZero's innovative chess strategies and the promise of AI".
