Two chess books from The Prodigal Pawn

A few weeks ago my chess-blog-fellow The Prodigal Pawn announced a chess books giveaway for those who read his chess blog and are active there (it means leave comments there at least).

As I am one of those cases, I kindly asked The Prodigal Pawn for Chess Endings: Essential Knowledge by Yuri Averbakh. The author is one of the best teachers of chess endings and those of you, who read my blog carefully, knows that my knowledge of chess ending is something what I want to improve rapidly next year.

Tommy (the real first name of The Prodigal Pawn) was so nice and he sent me also another book – Purdy’s Fine Art of Chess Annotation: Volume Two by C. J.S. Purdy. I hadn’t known too much about this author but when I looked at his book, it grabbed my attention almost immediately. Purdy describes there a method how to study and learn much from masters’ games. I will disclose more details about the method in some of next posts here.

Unintentionally the books became another Xmas gift for me as they were delivered by post yesterday ;)

I would like to thank to The Prodigal Pawn for very nice books this way. I will go through them carefully, do not worry! I am sure they will be useful for me! If you do not know his blog yet, please, go here and enjoy his interesting articles!
