Luther’s Chess Reformation

The book is already out on Forward Chess and will be published in physical form on Wednesday (available in chess book shops everywhere!). I managed to have a chat with Thomas about the book in general. Unfortunately I am still in my early days in learning to use this software. Nikos said I forgot to click on bottom, which meant I look a bit slimmer than usual! Apparently it is not that bad…

The Pgn can be found here. There are no variations this week though…

    Waitting for book that arrives on wednesday. I really liked the excerpt (much better than the video :)), if the whole book has the same quality, it will became a “classic”.

    Having bought the german edition of the book this was the first chess book in years I read from the first to the last page in one session. Maybe I’m somewhat biased because of being disabled too meanwhile. But for me it’s the chess book of the year.

    The personal story of Thomas Luther inclusive chess content, his work for FIDE, his work as a trainer and the hints he gives to become a better player and trainer were really rich. As I go slowly through books I haven’t worked through the chess content. But the examples I went through with the board were fun.

    Congratulation to your team for having brought out this!

    Have a peaceful Christmas time and a healthy year 2017!

    First of all I wish a happy and prosperous new 2017 to Quality Chess Team and to all fans across the globe 🙂

    Jacob, do you have any plans or considerations for:

    1) Playing the King’s Indian

    – a GM Guide format for Black
    – recent competition books: Dejan Bojkov: “Modernized: The King´s Indian Defense”, Milos Pavlovic: “New Weapons in the King´s Indian”, Alexei Kornev: “King´s Indian – Practical Black Repertoire with Nf6, g6, d6 Vol. 2” and upcoming in 2017 Victor Bologan: “Bologan’s King’s Indian”.

    2) Playing the Queen’s Gambit Declined

    – a GM Guide format for Black based on Tartakower and Lasker Orthodox
    – recent competition book: John Cox: “Declining the Queen´s Gambit”.

    3) Playing the Kalashnikov

    – a GM Guide format for Black
    – a possible joint venture by Tony Rotelly and Nikolaos Ntrilis
    – recent competition books: Tony Rotella: “The Killer Sicilian” and Matthieu Cornette & Fabien Libiszewski: “The Complete Kalashnikov”.

    Please take my suggestions seriously cause every proposal has many thousands of die-hard fans who are eagerly awaiting “their beloved” book from top-notch publisher.

    Not exactly on 2, but we have Playing 1.d4 d5 by Nikos coming. One 1 I think we have enough KID books with 6 recent ones! On 3. Tony’s book is good and Nikos did help him with it already!

    this book from Thomas Luther is really a great chess book. Lots of personal implication and inside view. Sharing IM/GM experience both as a player and as a trainer are real improuvement. i hope many other high level player will write books to share their own view about chess.

    Dear Quality Chess Team.
    It would be great to publish a Complete Guide for Self Training.
    Not only tips, but a whole program with detailed times, themes, ways of testing and recomendations to self evaluation.

    @Gustavo B.
    We already have two such programmes, for different levels. One is the Yusupov series, the other is Grandmaster Preparation. Obviously they will not fit every wish 1:1, but they are there and a lot of people have used these programmes with great success.

    @Gustavo B.
    In my opinion “Pump Up Your Rating” by Axel Smith is a very good guide from Quality Chess for self training.
