    How to Reassess Your Chess 4th edition

    I heard he replaced his whole "formulate a plan" method with just "observe the imbalances and a plan should come naturally". I've never read Silman but that method sounds more realistic to me. In my experience sticking to any one plan rarely works.

    Or maybe he's just caving to the recent community obsession with tactics training...

    Maybe I'll check it out if I hear more about it.

    Then again, in my experience "just observing the imbalances" rarely makes a plan simply bubble up in my mind. If I want a plan, I have to go and look for it, and even then I'm liable not to find one.

    I wonder if Yifan Hou (current women's world champion) ever read HTRYC.
