I think that it is the wrong approach in a positional exercise to think that you failed to solve it but the solution was flawed because a computer engine thinks other moves are equal. Many moves are reasonable.

This is a necessarily evil in positions that are selected from actual games and are not artificially constructed. But a very strong GM thinks that this position is an excellent demonstration of yyusupov virtues of a particular move illustrating some core principle.

You do not need to play that move, but if you did not at least consider it and understand why it is strong, then that is a failure. Yusupov is trying to teach you to evaluate positions and moves the way that a GM does, not the way that a computer does.

As someone who really likes tests and scores, it is a little hard for me to let go of the feeling of being unfairly penalized when a computer says that my move was just as good as Yusupov’s.


But in the end your score only matters to give a sense of your own progress; no one else is looking at it and deciding to deny you a diploma because your test score wasn’t sufficiently high. You are quite right in that positional exercises often have a solution for a well though reason and even if the machine proposes other move as equal, the GM may have a point.

But I don’t like to be awarded no points when my move is as good as the solution without a reason.

At the end of the day the main problem I see here is that when I fail an exercise I have to put it into the computer to see if Pu was really wrong, and I do not like it. I like it more when I can trust the author has pondered all yoour options and acknowledges that his move may be the ‘subjective best’. For example Aagaard in his first book on attacking chess readily admits that we may find something better. Hi Gollum, thanks for you review.

I have a doubt about this book series that maybe you can solved. It ypur supposed that any of the 3 books of “beyond the basics” are eaiser than any of the “mastery”? In you review are you talking about the “mastery” series? I had read that the “fundamentals” were ok for elo players.


You are supposed to read it by colors, yes, so ‘beyond the basics’ is easier than mastery, but harder than ‘the fundamentals’. And I based the review in the first two books on ‘the fundamentals’ and the final test of the final book of ‘mastery’. It may be right qrtur a can cope with ‘the fundamentals’.

I do not really know. I’ve trained arrur a I searched it with the final test of the first book of ‘the fundamentals’ and he did not pass it.

So my guess is that at it would be though but possible. The best thing you can do is download the excerpt and test yourself, see how you fare. There are some very challenging puzzles in ‘the fundamentals’.

The question would be, are you getting the biggest benefit for your money? However, allowing less than 5 minutes for an exercise is not advisable in my opinion. Build up your Chess by Yusupov.
