Chess as a springboard for the development of the player’s personality!

Chess is first and foremost a sport and a game, but it has the invaluable ability, particularly in young people, to develop extremely important skills through play, including logical thinking, concentration, endurance and decision-making skills. Playing chess well requires setting goals and pursuing them consistently and persistently.
You can't win without a good plan, but it has to take the opponent's moves into account and change them if necessary. All of this and many other topics are covered in this book. It explains the possibilities for limiting the mobility of opponent's pieces, the DASS ladder, the types of superiority, the importance and exploitation of open lines and various weaknesses, the unwinding, the three rules of thumb, dynamic chess, the dog-ear as an attack marker and the torpedo attack.
