"Instead we have focussed on 3 simple areas which we believe will yeild dividends"

In the 21st century, many chess players have become totally immersed in the study of openings, endlessly processing database information on their laptop computers. Even with limitless time, we would doubt that this is the best way for most chess players to develop their potential. But let’s face it, most of us do not have the time or resources which are available to the professional.

Instead, we have focussed on three simple areas which, we believe, will yield dividends.

In one part, we look at tactics. This website will provide a daily problem which will test and improve your flair for combinations.

Another part will consist of multiple choice questions which will test your knowledge of various aspects of the game of chess. We will provide a new multiple choice problem each week.

Last, and perhaps most importantly, we will invite you to follow a classic game from the past, and guess the moves of one of the masters. You will be allocated points according to how successful you are. When you have completed the test, you will be able to calculate your score and make an estimate of your growing strength. This ‘Test Your Chess’ section will appear monthly.

Armed and Dangerous

"Are you tired of constantly following the same old opening moves? Fed up with always having to keep up with modern chess theory? Or perhaps you simply wish to try something new and exciting, but cannot decide between the numerous choices available? We have the answer!"

" Dangerous Weapons is a brand-new series of opening books which supply the reader with an abundance of hard-hitting ideas to revitalize his or her opening repertoire. Many of the carefully chosen weapons are innovative, visually shocking, incredibly tricky, or have been unfairly discarded; they are guaranteed to throw even your most experienced opponent off balance."

Wow! I decided to check the truth of the above claims by buying and critically reading the book on the Open Games, Dangerous Weapons 1 e4 e5 . Are the bold claims of the series justified? Read Review
