Numerical assessment of the difficulty level of each task allows testing the strength of chess players' play, and also helps coaches select suitable examples for practice. Of particular interest are over two hundred super-tense positions specially compiled by the author, in which when White moves, White wins the only way, and when Black moves – black.

    The authors continue to study typical opening and middlegame positions. Royal Fortress No. 2 has pawns on squares f7, g6, h7 (or f2, g3, h2), and they are usually joined by another defender – bishop on g7 (g2). This formation is called fianchetto, it is found in many popular openings, such as the Catalan Opening, King's Indian Defense, Grunfeld Defense and a number of others.  The authors analyze in detail the techniques of attack, defense and counterattack. Most examples – from the creativity of modern chess players (for example, a separate chapter is dedicated to the strongest Russian grandmaster Ian Nepomniachtchi); they are complemented by parts that have become a classical heritage. The book contains about 300 positions for independent solution, so it is not only a textbook, but also a solid problem book. Grandmaster Konstantin Chernyshov, head of the Interregional Grandmaster School in Kostroma, and his daughter International Master Natalya Kareva – experienced coaches, whose students include grandmasters and masters, champions of Russia and Europe among juniors.  The book is addressed to young chess players and their mentors.

    This tiny book is about struggle, a subject not readily discussed in the present-day European political correctness milieu. The author is one of the first great chess masters who know very well that the higher is a chess-player's skill the greater is his freedom. Lasker's comments on strategy and tactics, on principles of saving forces, on the logic of struggle for survival and the principle of justice are certainly interesting. Logics have been excluded from the school curriculum and an acquaintance with Lasker's book yet again suggests that this is probably a serious omission.  ISBN: 9785973900915 Author (s): Lasker Series: Ideology Publisher: Europe Language: Russian Format: 11.5x15x0.7cm Pages: 132 p.
