This beautiful book was written by Sinclair Wilkenson, USVICA vice-president, chess coach, and Olympic team player
Over the years, I realize that much work is required to provide simple and basic chess information to all who were interested. I also saw the need for chess teachers and players to introduce and expose chess to our students and our adult population. Further, I felt that someone in our islands had to initiate the move and present this “game of life” to everyone. It is this emotion and spirit that has motivated me to write this book. The book is divided into differentsections.An effort is made in the first few chapters to describe the game of chess, explain how to position the board, examine the history of each piece, demonstrate the movement of each piece, and provide some practical scenarios and question for each reader. In the second half, a more in-depth analysis of the game is presented. I focused on terms and meanings, information about world chess leaders, pins and forks, stalemates, how to force draws, and scenarios showing how to checkmate an opponent in one or two moves. I hope that the information presented would benefit chess enthusiasts.
