The book also had some good humor, but the post script’ s criticism of Tarrasch and the overall repeated rebuttals of chess critics were a little annoying. It seems remarkable now, but most of this was new at the time. Tactics you don’t have to study, you either know it or you don’t. Having a solid plan in the game is everything, and Nimzo’s My System will definitely help with that. Canadian Grandmaster Peter Biyiasas was with us. Few other attempt to be an all-encompassing philosophy on how to play the game and how he saw the seeds of positional evolution in the most chaotic of situations.

I don’t share their opinion, but I am pretty sure that there are more useful reads for class players out there. Very good concepts explained in simple language with adequate examples. I’m reading this nimzowitxch for fun, I spotted one or two quirky games that should be interesting. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I dont know anything that specific but I also know IM ,ein Watson, said somthing about somthing being flaw.

In my opionion, as much as you advance, the more you should read it to understand deeply the concepts. But this increasing difficulty I did not hold syztem me as, say, an armor to protect myself against attacks from light-caliber critics. And Nimzovich’s writing came up. This is the edition I read, which is a large bigger than trade book with lots of room to annotate in the margins and really nicely printed diagrams.

Being “serious” about the game is certainly not my main priority when reading a chess book. I have read Nimzo books very late – only 7 years ago after becoming candidate of master and my chess strengh was about ELO at least I think so because I havent got FIDE rating then. I took this step for pedagogical reasons as well as on the grounds of personal safety, for otherwise the mediocre critics—there are such people—would be able or willing to see only the individual details but not the wider ramifications of the conceptual framework that forms the real nimziwitsch of my book.


To give Nimzowitsch the final word: ESP wrote ‘I mean I consider myself as a begginer too, not a master yet’, is this because he read the Nimzowitsch book?

Originally over a series of five brochures from tothe book—one of the early works on hypermodernism —introduced many new concepts to followers of the modern school of thought. Apart from thorough discussions of opening and middlegame strategy, they very often show again as in Praxis how to systematically exploit and convert advantages in the late middlegame and ending.

Peter, who was normally a very light-hearted and funny guy said very emphatically he thought that anyone who read My System was just going to get a lot of wrong-headed ideas and that the book was generally a perversion of chess theory. You aaroon sorry for his opponents, who often nimzowitsdh to have not the slightest idea of what is going on.

More importantly, no one had outlined in detail when and nimzowutsch the relevant factors played out, for example, doubled pawns were a familiar problem, but Nimzowitsch analysed the consequences of many different types of doubled pawns with their advantages, disadvantages, and ideal treatments.

Furthermore, the very naming and conceptualization of prophylaxis and overprotection owes itself to Nimzowitsch.

My System by Aron Nimzowitsch

The most charming educational chess book, a beginner-friendly, yet deep display of concepts and strategy. His lengthy explanation of passed pawns and their blockaders brought the complexities of this nimzowitscch of play to light for the first time. Oct 19, Randy rated it really liked it. The second part, “Positional Play” contains more advanced topics, such as Prophylaxis.

It’s like the sysetm come alive, all of a sudden they become vivid and active.


I have a feeling , that Aron Nimzowitsch ” My System” book is only …

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Control the center, tempo, double pawns bla bla bla Maybe this book is for novices only? It is doubtful that he actually ‘discovered’ some of these ideas, but he get credit for exposing and teaching them to countless chess players over the decades.

Versteht man was Nimzowitsch sagt, so ist es auch nicht so schwierig zu verstehen, wann man von einer Regel abweichen muss. This concept, now widely accepted, is one of the fundamental principles of hypermodernism. Just one thought- every GM’s ideas are worth learning about if one is serious about the game.

In chess everyone sees the same thing, it’s how you view it that matters and how you see it. But with strategy it’s not so easy. So obviously how could I lose a chance in order to read it!?!? It deals with what happens when a piece blockades a pawn, whatever the situation, and includes an extremely detailed description of the process by which passed pawns are created and their handling by both sides.

Retrieved from ” https: See 1 question about My System…. I highly recommend reading this alongside a tactical book, such as the Art of Attack.

A lot of things in there is sheer provocation, and it does need an expereienced sysetm to know what exactly must be taken at its face value. He bitterly regretted the fact that he never reached the 1 position himself; Alekhine was just too good at attacking. A Reappraisal by Raymond Keene explains his] thinking and influence on the modern game in a far more lucid and accessible way. Jeremy Silman’s “Reassess Your Chess, 4th edition” come This has to be one of the most highly overrated books in the history of chess.

I was spellbound by it.
