The Silicon Road to Chess Improvement


The Silicon Road to Chess Improvement 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!


Your chess engine can do so much more than just calculate 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.


Chess Engine Training Methods, Opening Strategies & Middlegame Techniques


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.


Matthew Sadler is a Grandmaster and a former British Champion. With co-author Natasha Regan,

Sadler won the prestigious English Chess Federation Book of the Year Award for their worldwide

bestseller Game Changer: AlphaZero’s Groundbreaking Chess Strategies and the Promise of AI.
