A History of Chess: From Chaturanga to the Present Day

A History of Chess: From Chaturanga to the Present Day by Yuri Averbakh & Garry KasparovAn Historical Perspective Chess - the "Royal Game" - is an ancient board game, perhaps fifteen hundred years old. There are many legends about how chess came to be. Most of them are folk tales and are far from reality. Arguably more books have been written about chess than all the other games combined, but relatively little has been written about the history of chess. The topic is difficult; it requires thorough knowledge, and there are still many unknown historical pitfalls. It is therefore no surprise that there exist a variety of hypotheses concerning the origin of chess. In this ebook, the...

Undertaking such a pioneering task, the scope of which has never been attempted before or since, Murray taught himself to read Arabic in order to decipher historical manuscripts on the game and its beginnings. His study unravels the history...

Beautiful Mates: Applying Principles of Beauty to Computer Chess Heuristics

An argument is made that by continuing the 'brute force' search approach, computer chess development is moving away from human evaluation methods.

Research is done into studies of evaluation methods, and a discovery is made that humans use a form of intuition, called their 'sense of beauty', to choose the best chess move. A paper by Margulies is cited which formulates principles of beauty which apply to chess. Three versions of a chess program are developed, using no heuristics, standard...

Bobby Fischer: The Career and Complete Games of the American World Chess Champion

Bobby Fischer: The Career and Complete Games of the American World Chess Champion by Karsten MüllerThe Ultimate Fischer Collection! The Chess Publishing Event of the Decade! The years after the Second World War saw international chess dominated by the Soviets Botvinnik, Smyslov, Tal, Petrosian and then Spassky held the world crown, treating it as if it were almost an integral part of their country's heritage. There were occasional flashes of brilliance in the West Reshevsky, Najdorf, and later Larsen but no one really mounted a serious challenge to the Russian hegemony.

Bridge's Strangest Hands

Bridge's Strangest Hands by Andrew WardThis collection of oddities shows how Contract Bridge has played its part in embezzlement, murder, suicide, kidnapping, imprisonment and battle. The stories feature similar hands to those of bridge - the complete misfit, the two-way slam and men against women - while others, like 'Thirteen Spades' and 'The Raspberry Jam Conundrum', are closer to fantasy. Adaptations of the game, such as Nullo Bridge and Egdirb, are also included. Every hand in this ebook is a winner. Unless, of course, you were the player who was dealt thirteen hearts but bid diamonds by mistake.
