Description

Books on how to improve your results over the board have been written before but in these changing times when chess has propelled onto the public consciousness, an update is badly needed. Grandmaster Daniel Gormally uses his 25+ years of experience to take the readers through the fires of the tournament cauldron, while illustrating some of his battles with the best players in England.

Along the way he tackles how to approach online play, an increasingly important issue as this form of chess has increased in popularity. Do you need a coach? Will streamers really help you to improve? And should you turn off your computer?

Gormally emphasises the importance of independent analysis in enabling the player to make progress and explains how he himself suffered in his results due to an over-reliance on chess engines.

And then there is the nitty gritty of tournament play itself. Gormally grapples with subjects that aren't covered in normal tournament books, from what hotels you should choose, to what kind of diet you need to follow, while also concluding that he lacks the awesome physical fitness of the Norwegian chess god Magnus Carlsen.

It all culminates in an explosive Hastings diary, where the author uses his acerbic wit to pull apart the vagaries of preparing for international competition in an account that verges on comic-tragic.
