“I realize that this book will not cover all open wounds, nevertheless my aim to write a manual about defense which can help us defenders enduring the hardest difficulties in practice, seems to be achieved. Personally speaking this book helped me as a defender to approach a worse position in a much more objective way, optimally use all of my defensive resources available, both psychologically and technically, to set – even under the most dire circumstances – pitfalls, while keeping my nerves under control.” ~ Jan Werle

Unbeatable  Choosing the subject wasn’t easy at all, since the topic of defense requires a

comprehensive analysis  from different angles in order to give the chess player under pressure useful

guidelines during a  game. Of course, the technical part is a matter of finding challenging, new and

interesting positions. I  was struggling with describing the emotions that we have during the game,

how they influence our  decision- making process and what we can do about that. Hence, I tried the

best I could to define the  issues the defender encounters during a stressful game. Finally I am

confidently sharing with you the lessons that I learned from sport psychologists and literature, and

my experience as a player over 30 years.


Fortunately I was not alone in the writing process and I am very grateful for all the support I

received. In special, I would like to thank Iozefina and my friend Erwin l’Ami, who gave me the

essential moral and technical support throughout the writing process. On top of that I would like to

thank all of the photographers, and especially Erwin’s wife Alina for the beautiful portraits which I

could use for my book. Though being one of a kind, I am thankful for my ‘nemesis’ Loek van Wely for

his professional insights in his preface and in chapter 4.



Also, I am grateful for all the proofreaders and last but not least my editor and the entire team,

including Daniel Fernandez and Mark Haast, who kept their faith in me despite the endless recurring

cycle of writing. In “Acknowledgments,” I am pleased to thank all the other kind people who helped

me so much through this cumbersome process and challenging subject, and without whom I could

not finish this book.


Hopefully this first Volume of ‘Unbeatable!’ will be enjoyable for you dear reader, and

simultaneously, serves you well in practice how to stand firm in using your defensive resources as a

last resort. But at the same time this is a book with a smile and a tear.
