In August 2008, Andres D. Hortillosa entered the New England Masters. It was a brave choice for an unrated player to compete in such a tough event, but it proved to be an inspired decision; he exceeded all expectations and was rewarded with a FIDE international rating of 2199. This, however, was no overnight success; it was the result of systematic work. How did he achieve such outstanding improvement? The answer lies in this book. Hortillosa believes that a chessplayer can improve at any age as long as he or she is inspired with the right attitude and enabled with the right thinking processes. In this original and thought-provoking book, Hortillosa explains his ever-evolving system of chess improvement. He discusses in detail methods of preparation, how to get the best out of all the available sources, and numerous over-the-board techniques such as capitalizing on mistakes, eliminating blunders, sticking to plans and minimizing harmful bias. His system works and now he is divulging his secrets. You might be a young, teenage or adult player, but if you are serious about improving your chess this book is for you. This work offers a clear study plan to improve your chess. It shows readers how to sharpen over-the-board techniques. It offers excellent guidance on how to train with books and software.
