Chess Psychology: The Will to Win! Chess Book
Chess Psychology: The Will to Win! Front Cover

“That is part of what I like in chess: it is psychological warfare at the board.” – Magnus Carlsen during an interview with the BBC, March 2013

In chess, more than in any other game, battles are won and lost in the mind.

Many chess players often neglect the psychological side of chess, yet it is an integral part of chess success. Your determination to win your games will help you stay focused at the chessboard.

“Chess is war over the board. The object is to crush the opponent’s mind.” – Bobby Fischer

When you expect to win your games, you are more likely to take advantage of your opponent’s mistakes. There are many other benefits to cultivating “The Will To Win,” as you will learn.

US National Master William Stewart is convinced that a positive attitude is crucial if you want to develop and achieve success as a chess player, and in this chess book, he focuses on the vital subject of chess psychology.

All the key areas of chess are covered here. Stewart highlights the principles of the successful opening play and outlines an easy-to-learn starting repertoire.

He also examines positional play, defensive resilience, typical mistakes and how to avoid them, tournament strategy, clock management, how to study chess, and much more besides.

This chess book is packed with tips and practical advice for beginners and intermediate players, and anyone wishing to improve their mental approach to chess.
