Your chess engine can do so much more than just calculate variations!

Every chess player, from club level up, can improve their game by using engines. That is the message of

Matthew Sadler’s thought-provoking new book, based on many years of experience with the world’s best

chess software. You may not be able to replicate their dazzling-deep calculations, but there is so much

more your engine can do for you than just checking variations!


Matthew Sadler, co-author of the groundbreaking bestseller Game Changer, presents some unique

methods to improve by using your engine. He explains how in your opening preparation, instead of

sifting through masses of computer analysis you should play training games against your engine. He also

shows how to train your early middlegame play, the conversion of advantages, your positional play, and

your defensive skills. And, of course: how to analyse your own games.


These generic training methods Sadler supplements with concrete techniques. He explains how the top

engines tackle crucial middlegame themes such as entrenched pieces, whole board play, ‘attacking

rhythm’, exchanging pieces, the march of the Rook’s pawn, queen versus pieces, and many others. He

also opens your eyes to typical strategies that the engines found and fine-tuned in popular openings such

as the King’s Indian, the Grünfeld, the Slav, the  French and the Sicilian.


Sadler illustrates his lessons with a collection of fantastic games, explained with his trademark

enthusiasm. For the first time, the superhuman powers of the chess engine have been decoded to the

benefit of all players, in a rich and highly instructive book.
