Point Count Chess
Compiled by BabalooMoon
--*--

UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

“The by-product of Point Count, incidentally, may be of greater value than the net of its pluses and minuses. It is the assimilation by the learner of the varying ideas which form the strategic base of the chess game” – Chapter 1, page 9

You don't say! The book "Point Count Chess" by Horowitz and Mott-Smith is an absolute gem. Guard it with your life! The point count method itself is mostly nonsense, but fortunately this book isn't really about a point count method. Instead, it is a wonderfully clear discussion of the fundamental strategic and positional elements of chess. Probably the finest English language text on this subject that I have read.

This collection includes many of the games features in the book, along with others that illustrate the principles under discussion.
