På engelsk, 312 sider, udgivet 2012

Denne bog er andet bind i Aagaard´s meget roste og prisvindende trænings serie "Grandmaster Preparation" i seks bind. 

Jeg har lagt mærke til at Magnus Carlsen sjældent kommer i tidnød. Som mange stormestre har han oparbejdet en evne til at fokusere på kernen i en stilling, og derudfra vælge en løsning. Medens vi amatører bruger tiden på at regne på de forkerte løsninger.

Som træner har Aagaard udviklet en model med tre spørgsmål til at identificere de vigtige positionelle elementer i stillingen, og dermed nemmere finde løsninger på øvelserne.

Bogen er inddelt i 5 kapitler. Plus en lang række øvelser som du herefter skal løse. Gerne ved at spille stillingerne imod en modstander eller en computer. Budskabet er at du kun kan oparbejde din intuition ved hårdt arbejde, der ligner turnerings situationer.  

Min vurdering: har du 1800 i rating eller derover, og er indstillet på hårdt arbejde for at udvikle dig, så kan denne bog/denne serie løfte dit skakspil markant. Selv stærke IM og stormestre kan have glæde af serien.

Om forfatteren: Jacob Aagaard er stormester siden 2007, nu bosat i Skotland. Kreativ direktør på Quality, og anerkendt både som skribent og træner. Har vundet en lang række priser, og er tildelt titlen "FIDE Senior Trainer".

Anmeldelser:

"I like the books Positional Play and Strategic Play. After I studied them, my pieces started to co-ordinate better."

GM David Navara

"Positional Play offers the reader 222 well-chosen positions to solve, drawn primarily, but not exclusively, from recent practice. These positions are arranged around three themes: weaknesses, pieces and prophylaxis. Even those unable to solve the positions will derive benefit from the effort and the thorough solutions.

Accepted practice holds that all chess players should incorporate thirty minutes a day solving tactics. An extra half hour going through Positional Play would be time well spent.

Highly Recommended."

IM John Donaldson (full review)

"The best three chess books: The brilliant Grandmaster Preparation series (Strategic Play, Positional Play and Calculation), which I would warmly recommend to anyone wanting to reach the next step with their chess."

James Adair, CHESS Magazine

"Aagaard is an excellent writer and a skilled pedagogue. His examples clearly illustrate the themes he is trying to describe, and the solutions to the exercises are clear and comprehensive.

Positional Play, like all of the books in the Grandmaster Preparation series, is not a book for the faint of heart. Effort, however, will be repaid with increased understanding and perhaps even Elo points to boot. It can be warmly recommended to players over 1800 and those slightly lower if plucky and willing to work."

John Hartmann (full review)

"All exercise positions in this book are from real games involving at least one player of IM strength. The positions are quite modern – most source games were played in the last fifteen years... It is evident that Aagaard has put a lot of work into acquiring these positions for use as training material, and [Positional Play] may well be a terrific addition to a chess player's library based on the quantity and quality of the exercises. Contemplation of the positions should provide many hours of enjoyment for chess players."

Vijay Raghavan, ChessCafe.com (full review)

"Each chapter brings a lot of fresh material to the reader for training purposes in the form of exercise positions... A great workbook to raise your playing strength."

Martin Rieger, Rochade Europa

"A challenge for the aspiring player, an invitation to some high class training sessions."

Uwe Bekemann, www.bdf-fernschachbund.de

"An amazing training and exercise book that will bring ambitious players to a high positional level with the help of the 3-question method. Highly recommended!"

Heinz Däubler, Der Neue Tag (Weiden)
