Chess is 99% tactics. This celebrated observation is not only true for beginners, but also for club players (Elo 1500 - 2000). If you want to win more games, nothing works better than training your combination skills.There are two types of books on tactics: those that introduce the concepts followed by some examples, and workbooks that contain lots of exercises. FIDE Master Frank Erwich has done both: he explains all the key tactical ideas AND provides an enormous amount of exercises for each different theme.Erwich has created a complete tactics book for ambitious club and tournament players. He takes you to the next level of identifying weak spots in the position of your opponent, recognizing patterns of combinations, visualizing tricks and calculating effectively. Erwich has also included a new and important element: tests that will improve your defensive skills.1001 Chess Exercises for Club Players is not a freewheeling collection of puzzles. It serves as a course text book, because only the most didactically productive exercises are featured. Every chapter starts with easy examples, but don't worry: the level of difficulty will steadily increase.
In basketball there are situations in which different factors appear and demand the players mental and technical stability, which determine the result. During that time even the highest quality player may miss a shoot that cost the team the victory. This study focuses on how basketball players perform in different game situations. The theory of volitional control by Julius Kuhl (2001) provides an explanation for the differences in performance. It describes cognitive and affective processes that modulate an individual characteristic interplay of different psychic systems. The player s predisposition whether he is an action- or a state-oriented is crucial. This study examines the different behavior of pressure-full and normal players, with pressure-full play describes a player s behavior that puts the opponent under pressure. Pressure in sports is a suitable tactical, technical, and psychological means to maintain or increase one s own performance and to reduce the effectiveness of the opponent at the same time. This study investigates whether or not volitional control and pressure-full play have an effect on the performance in basketball in critical and non-critical situation.
From sports participation to sport specific conditions, this state of the art text contributes comprehensively in the domain of physical education and sports sciences contextualizing the knowledge and theory that forms the underpinning of our knowledge behaviour in relation to neuromuscular components of fitness and physiological variable among basketball players of different level of achievement. Sport performance has taken a great leap over the last 20 years. Technology has enhanced our level of performance greatly through improved equipment and nutritional products. Back in the 1980 s it was good enough to be fitter than your opponent, that would secure the win, it was good enough to have more technical skills, it would ensure the upper hand, even having tactical skills would allow for an advantage. Today however, everybody is as fit, as technically and tactically advanced as their opponent. The playing fields have been leveled once again. This book may contribute towards promotion of athletic performance by means of helping physical education teachers and coaches to develop sound training program besides devising remedial training program.
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In the game of chess, prophylaxis ("prophylaxis," guarding or preventing beforehand) or a prophylactic move is a move that stops the opponent from taking action in a certain area for fear of some type of reprisal. Prophylactic moves are aimed at not just improving one''s position, but preventing the opponent from improving their own. Perhaps the most common prophylactic idea is the advance of the rook pawn to avert the possibility of back rank mate. In a more strategic sense, prophylaxis leads to a very positional game, often frustrating for players with a strong tactical orientation. Players who play in the prophylactic style prevent the initiation of tactical play by threatening unpleasant consequences. One of the largest advantages of this approach is that it keeps risk to a minimum while causing an overaggressive opponent to lose patience and make a mistake. The disadvantage is that it frequently fails against an opponent who is content with a draw.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In the game of chess, a sacrifice is a move giving up a piece or pawn in the hopes of gaining tactical or positional compensation in other forms. A sacrifice could also be a deliberate exchange of a chess piece of higher value for an opponent's piece of lower value. Any chess piece except the king can be sacrificed. Because players usually try to hold onto their own pieces, offering a sacrifice can come as an unpleasant surprise to one's opponent, putting him off balance, and causing him to waste much precious time trying to calculate whether the sacrifice is sound or not and whether to accept it. Sacrificing one's queen, or a string of pieces, adds to the surprise, and such games can be awarded brilliancy prizes.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The game is played by two players who alternately place black and white stones on the vacant intersections of a grid of 19×19 lines. Once placed on the board, stones cannot be moved elsewhere, unless they are surrounded and captured by the opponent's stones. The object of the game is to control (surround) a larger portion of the board than the opponent. Placing stones close together helps them support each other and avoid capture. On the other hand, placing stones far apart creates influence across more of the board. Part of the strategic difficulty of the game stems from finding a balance between such conflicting interests. Players strive to serve both defensive and offensive purposes and choose between tactical urgency and strategic plans.
Information warfare is the use and management of information in pursuit of a competitive advantage over an opponent. Information warfare may involve collection of tactical information, assurance that one's own information is valid, spreading of propaganda or disinformation to demoralize the enemy and the public, undermining the quality of opposing force information and denial of information-collection opportunities to opposing forces. Information warfare is closely linked to psychological warfare
In his book about the Sicilian Wing Gambit (1.e4 c5 2.b4 cxb4 3.a3) Marcus Schmücker takes a closer look at a very interesting opening, which for a long time has been regarded as a daredevil's approach or, at best, as an exotic option to avoid the enormous theoretical material of the Sicilian Defence. As a matter of fact, the idea of this gambit is quite serious. By eliminating Black's c-pawn and ensuring a swift development of his queen side, White wants to obtain positional compensation for the sacrificed pawn.The author concentrates on the best answer 3...d5, which enables Black to prevent his opponent from building a strong center with pawns on e4 and d4. The often ensuing sharp tactical skirmishes in most cases fill white spots on the theoretical maps. White has good chances to obtain advantage early on, which can even lead to a quick win if the opponent is completely unprepared.Of course, it's not to be expected that the Sicilian Wing Gambit will be used more often in GM tournaments from now on. But maybe the book can encourage more main stream players to include this neglected but serious anti-Sicilian weapon in their opening repertoire. Whether the popularity of this gambit will grow depends, however, on its success in practical games.It's the author's intention to treat all alternatives of the 'standard move' 3... d5 in a second volume.
