|May-11-05|| ||cu8sfan: Poor Igor, another victim of the persistent vowel draught in Eastern Europe...|
|Oct-11-05|| ||midknightblue: This guys book, "Chess Exam and Training Guide" is simply outstanding. If you dont have it then please check the reviews, including chesscafe.com, they say it better than i can. One of few chess books that kept my interest from page one right through the back cover. Check it out!|
|Aug-21-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Igor N Khmelnitsky|
KHMELNITSKY, Igor N.
|May-10-09|| ||Brown: I agree with you <midknightblue>. Among the many great things about the book, his was the first to give a position, give a variation to consider, and only THEN decide how to continue, whether it's better for black or white, etc. It forces visualization and support positions like no other book I've read.|
|May-25-10|| ||Everett: New book out: "You vs Bobby Fischer"
Same format as his previous books, but with positions straight from Fischer's games. It's up to you to play up to, or better than, than level of his opponents.
Mine is coming in the mail. He's books are some of the best instructional quality books out there.
|Jun-24-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Khmelnitsky has a regular instructional column on the Chessville web site:|
|Jul-07-11|| ||wordfunph: IM Khmelnitsky's 320-page book reminds me of GM Chris Ward's Chess Choice Challenge series.|
first, he presents a position and the reader to pick his evaluation from the 4 choices, and finally decide for the best move from 4 alternatives.
my rating = 8/10
btw, Igor has beaten 30 different GMs.
|Aug-27-19|| ||Stonehenge: A lot of games played in Denmark and Norway seem to belong to Henrik Holmsgaard.|
|Aug-27-19|| ||Tabanus: The two Peer Gynt games in Norway were indeed played by Igor, see http://www.norbase.sjakk.biz/index....|
