Robert Ris: Extreme Calculation TrainingAfter the success of the first volume on Calculation Training, Dutch IM Robert Ris continues with “Extreme Calculation Training” — a wide range of new aspects which have to be mastered to become a great calculator at the board! The topics discussed in the original series (candidate moves, method of elimination & imagination) are certainly useful when studying the content of this new video series. Special attention will be paid to intermediate moves, quiet moves, sacrifices on empty squares, mating patterns, ignoring opponent threats, calculation in defence and methods of comparison. On top of that, more practical advice for training is recommended, for instance how to handle your time management and how to visualise the position in your mind during the calculation process. After going through the 13 examples from the theoretical section, it’s time to switch the brain to active participation and your calculation skills will be tested seriously! The frequent request for more puzzles has been granted, as Ris has selected no less than 50 games with multiple questions. After all, training your calculation abilities is an activity which never ends, it takes continual practise to stay sharp at the board!• Video running time: 9 hours (English)• With interactive training including video feedback• Extra: Extra database with further examples• Including ChessBase Reader Born in 1988, Robert Ris is an International Master who has represented The Netherlands in various international youth events.

Fly on the Wall
38,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Privy to the details of all your secret moments, all your misdeeds, private conversations and indulgences, the fly on the wall is neutral. It doesn't care that you cheat on your income tax, it won't stop you from jumping, and it won't call the police when you eliminate the neighbor's cat. It sees you spike the punch, touch yourself, curse your spouse, and switch your Scrabble tiles when your opponent leaves to pee. 'The Fly on the Wall' is a finely illustrated collection of short 'punch fiction' stories intended for adults. Inspired by the age-old expression, 'Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall for that conversation?' the creators have teamed up to explore what some of these private conversations, moments, and encounters might be like.The short stories and pen-and-ink drawings throughout 'The Fly on the Wall' are dark and subversive by nature, with an inherent wry humor prevalent throughout. Along with the fly, the reader eavesdrops on church confessionals, jail visits, funeral homes, assisted suicide, hitchhiking, cross-dressing, alcoholism, and murder . . . to name a few.With arresting visuals and reminiscent of the storytelling in a Robert Altman film, 'The Fly on the Wall' is a collection that is sure to provoke, shock, and inspire.

Strategic Thinking in 3D
48,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Effective strategic thinking requires a clear understanding of one¿s external environment. Each organization has a unique environment, but as Ross Harrison explains in Strategic Thinking in 3D, any environment¿whether in the fields of national security, foreign policy, or business¿has three dimensions: systems, opponents, and groups.Systems strategy involves the challenge of creating leverage against opponents by shaping the external environment they rely on for sustaining their power. Opponents-based strategy requires analyzing a competitor¿s capability, motivation and strategy, assessing one¿s own competitive challenges, and then developing approaches for directly confronting the opponent. Strategy applied to groups aims at mobilizing political, consumer, and market groups against the power of an opponent. Strategic Thinking in 3D makes strategy¿portable¿ for individuals who switch careers multiple times during their professional lives, moving between public, nonprofit, and private sector jobs.Harrison uses al Qaeda¿s strategy against the United States as a¿capstone¿ case study to demonstrate how strategic success often results from the cascading effect of ¿wins¿ in all three of these dimensions. Conversely, strategic failure can come from the mutual reinforcement of ¿losses¿ across these same three dimensions. Reinforcing and integrating the concepts, Harrison shows how strategy in 3D actually works in practice.
