Description

Most chess books give you a chapter and verse on how to understand chess better, but pay little attention to how your behaviour and psychological outlook - before, during and after a game - can affect your standard of play. Author Amatzia Avni addresses the latter issue head on, covering:

The setting of goals

Handling spectators

Dealing with losses

Motivational aspects

Cause-effect analysis

The search for behavioural clues.

Drawing on research findings, strong players' descriptions, as well as the views of the psychologist author, Practical Chess Psychology covers this much-neglected human aspect of chess. A better understanding of the psychology of chess playing as well as chess theory will assist players at club and tournament level to maximise their chess strengths.
