NN Needs Fredthe... Reinfeld, Chernev, Horowitz,
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

This fellow NN really struggles at times but he keeps coming back for more! Admire NN's persistence, but he needs to read some good fundamental chess books to improve his game. (Always read the same chess book twice, back-to-back.) Learning from one's losses is all part of the process of improvement.

No, NN is not the British chap John Nunn. He's a fair player, decent writer too. Some would even say "accomplished." This NN fellow has his work cut out for himself.

Say, Gioachino Greco's games are excellent training games for the newbie. Greco clearly was ahead of his time.

Thank you Sibahi, S A G A R and ughaibu. You know who you are! See the Art of Checkmate compiled by kataru.

filipecea says NN is the Latin's "Nomen Nescio" ... Something like "Unknown name"...

Better yet, NN should get a house cat; it made all the difference w/Emanuel Lasker, who reigned as world champion for 27 years. Cats are patient, alert observers, ready to pounce -- just like a good chess player! Get all of Lasker's books too. Many a future GM learned the way from studying Lasker's books. Emanuel Lasker and Edward Lasker have written all-time chess classics for strong players. NN first should read some simpler books by Fred Reinfeld, Irving Chernev and/or I.A. Horowitz to establish a working foundation of chess knowledge before attempting to acquire advanced understanding. It's better to read a chess book that is a bit too easy than one that is too difficult to appreciate. Then read that same book again!
