The Tarrasch Formula


The Tarrasch Formula's central metaphor is an interesting one - the pack versus the herd. Imagine your own pieces as a pack of wolves trying to isolate a sick buffalo from your opponent's herd. The premise is that steady play to reduce the power of a single enemy piece, turning down the volume until its normal voice becomes a whisper,' can be enough to win a game. The authors examine play against weak knights, bishops, and opposite-colored bishops in situations where a piece is cut off or misplaced. They have a chapter on heavier pieces and on zugzwang. Finally they revisit Philidor's Defense from Palatnik's unique perspective with the Palatnik Gambit, melding the Tarrasch Formula and Palatnik's fresh approach to an old opening idea into a viable opening repertoire. The 57 games in this book will very likely transform the way you play chess, providing a straightforward and effective method for improving your decision-making and move selection.Features:Examine play against weak knights
