just about to place an order there...
foxy openings DVD: Albin counter gambit
book: art of attack in chess (heard it's good)
but I spotted the excalibur grandmaster electronic chess set....
I'm severely tempted, any one got one? Good / Bad?
PS - any other suggestions on above items welcome, just feel like splashing out...
Originally posted by d36366I have the '94 edition (brown cover) and it's in descriptive notation which I find annoying. Also, I think Nunn (could be wrong) has updated some of the analysis and reworded some of the wording of the book to make it more palatable.
Why do you say that? I've got an old edition (bought years ago). Is there a lot of new material in the latest edition? Is it worth "upgrading"?
Originally posted by TheGambitI'll just assume that you have a busy schedule because Reassess Your Chess is a very easy read.
I know what you mean about algebraic - on Amazon, I got Art of Attack and then some other book for £3 as a special package deal. The other book is in descriptive notation, which you can't even read anymore because it's covered in my red wine vomit.
I've only read one book completely and that was some tactics book which was pretty poorly written - Eric ...[text shortened]... warze Ritter posted a good list on another thread, check that out if you haven't already.

It all depends on how much of the annotation you go through, and how seriously you look at it.
