9781781943526: Your Opponent is Overrated

Which opening does better in practice: the wild, “unsound” and “refuted” Latvian Gambit (1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 f5) or the solid Philidor Defence (1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 d6)?
As James Schuyler points out, referring to the definitive Megabase, the Latvian Gambit scores higher.
How can such a discredited opening (and the same story is repeated with other “unsound” openings) do so well? The point is that playing like this throws the opponent off balance, makes them anxious and induces mistakes.
Even the very best players recognize the value of discomforting the opponent. Historically, Emanuel Lasker was the master of this approach and his modern day equivalent is world champion Magnus Carlsen. Carlsen frequently employs offbeat openings and his opponents invariably fail to counter them correctly.
This is the key theme of this book. Schuyler covers all phases of the game and discusses other vital subjects such as harassment, material imbalance, time management, surprise moves, unusual ideas, provocative play, manoeuvres and recovering from bad positions.

  • Includes methods to improve practical play
  • Develops a win-oriented attitude
  • Examines ways to induce mistakes

About the Author:

James Schuyler is a FIDE Master. He was Nevada State Champion in 2007 and won the Virginia State Championship in both 2011 and 2012. He has been teaching chess for over 25 years.

Review:

The book deals with what every amateur would like to know, and has doubts about. It does this through an array of different topics, treated in different chapters, e.g. material imbalances, lost positions, clock, the endgame, etc. These topics are worth pursuing and reading about, because maybe they can shift our view and give us an extra edge in the next tournament game...When the author shares some games or gives me a hint of what to look for, and through that search I learn something new. Does this mean I'll become a GM thanks to reading the book? Surely not. But I'll improve as a chess player, and that is worth it for me. (Davide Nastasio Georgia Chess)
