Any general advice would be nice too :) tia>>ketchuplover. I'm working problems from Palliser's "The Complete Chess Workout". Great prolems! I'm doing it for fun, not for blood (too old for blood -- not enough talent). I open the book randomly and solve a couple each morning or evening. If you're young and ambitious, I suppose you could assign yourself 10 or 15 a day and work straight through.

good book by Ricard Palliser, i rate it 9/10..

Nov-23-10  katar: "Richard Palliser" writes so many great chess books that i happen to think that "Richard Palliser" is the pseudonym of a writing team of at least 8-10 full-time chess authors.
Nov-23-10  BobCrisp: A bit like <Franklin W Dixon>?
Nov-27-11  ketchuplover: Due out 1-24-12 is Chess Developments:The Modern Benoni
