Book-The Chess Scene

Post by Alan Ruffle » Wed Sep 11, 2019 9:32 am

The Chess Scene

“The Chess Scene”. A light-hearted look at the way the game of chess is played and organised. The principle objective is to provide a streamlined approach to improving the play of a new and enthusiastic novice chess player. A person who has learned how to move the chess pieces. A person who is starting to play chess in a constructive and thoughtful manner. A person who is becoming more aware of the more precise rules of the game of chess. A person who is probably not yet a member of a chess club. But is considering the idea.
“The Chess Scene” Touches lightly into the way chess is organised at local, international and world levels. There is a chapter which refers to the adventures of a chess coach in the classroom, entitled “Coach in the classroom”. Emphasizing the front cover statement. “There are two types of chess coach. Experienced chess players who are not teachers. Experienced teachers who are not chess players. This book is dedicated with thanks to both”.
The book provides a practical path. To becoming a competitive player in the lower levels of local league or tournament chess. It provides a learning curve across identifiable plateaux's to initially achieve a chess playing grade of about English Chess Federation 125 plateaux one. And then on to plateaux two to hopefully achieve a grade of about English Chess Federation 150.
There are more books written about chess than all other indoor games put together. There are numerous chess books written by chess players of varying strengths, about how to play chess and how the chess pieces move. There are chess books about individual openings, specific endings, and middle game techniques, chess puzzles and quizzes, chess books showing a collection of games by a single player or games from a tournament or competition.
This book is about -
Hard factual undeniable tactical circumstances that demand to be known and played correctly, the bread and butter of the serious chess player.
“The Chess Scene”, Is designed to be an easy read, with ample diagrams to assist. As such. It might be of use to the regular club player. A person who simply loves to play chess, he always turns up for matches, he never lets the team down, he does not complain about what board he is asked to play on or what colour he is required to play with, he however, for one reason or another is not an avid studier of the game. Having read this book he will be, quite simply, harder to beat.

Is this the book written fifty years ago by Levy and Reuben or a different one?

The cover features a BH Wood clock from the 1960s or early 1970s.

I was asked to review the DVD however.

As I recall we wrote that we (BCM at the time) were extremely grateful to be able to review the DVD and we wished TC with his future DVD publishing.

Eric Schiller was not mentioned.
