 Post subject: Do you know this Chess Book on Strategy?
PostPosted: Tue Jun 14, 2005 7:04 pm 
I am looking for a middle game book I thought I owned. Perhaps I loaned it out one too many times. As I recall, the moves of a game between masters were shown, up to the middle game. You were then told you were a particular color, and given three possible strategies to chose from. The strategies were each a few paragraphs long, and were
all very appealing (at least to an average player who is not very good with strategy). Of course, you were to chose one of the strategies, and the book then told you why your choice was right (as the master played it) or incorrect.

Can anyone enlighten me as to the name of the book, or perhaps the author?

The book "Test Your Positional Play" was like that. I think Bellin was one of the co-authors ....

If it is a farily old book (i.e. over 25 years old), then the book is probably "Solitaire Chess" by I. A. Horowitz.

There is a newer book with the same title by Bruce Pandolfini.

I hope I wa able to help!
