Kurzbeschreibung

"Maximize your chances of survival with this guide to defense and counter-attack." - Mark Donlan, Chess Horizons

Good defensive abilities earn players a great many half-points and full-points. The climax of the defense is the launching of a devastating counter-attack, a skill at which all the great chess champions have been adept. Of particular interest to club players is Marin's discussion of how to defend against unsound attacks, and the problem of how to parry the attack while retaining winning chances. Other topics include attack and defence in equal positions, where both sides must judge carefully how much of their resources to devote to the attack and the counter-attack. The main subject, though, is the case where the defender is fighting for his life, and must decide how to maximise his chances of survival. Marin considers psychological issues and explains the main options available to the defender: simplification, cold-blooded defence, a positional sacrifice, 'blackmailing' the attacker, or a counter-attack.

Defence is traditionally a neglected area of chess study, but it is also one of the most important, rewarding and intriguing. Good defensive abilities earn players a great many half-points and full-points. The climax of the defence is the launching of a devastating counterattack, a skill at which all the great chess champions have been adept.

Sometimes we need to defend against unsound attacks, and then the challenge is to parry the attack while retaining winning chances. In equal positions, both sides must judge carefully how much of their resources to devote to the attack and the counter-attack. The main subject, though, is the case where the defender is fighting for his life, and must decide how to maximize his chances of survival. Marin considers psychological issues and explains the main options available to the defender, such as simplification, cold-blooded defence with the minimum of forces, or a positional sacrifice. In each case he discusses in detail the key issues in the resulting positions: how to defend difficult endings; how to assess threats realistically; and the prospects for counterplay that typically arise from a variety of material imbalances. Throughout the book there are exercises for the reader, together with full solutions.

"This is Marin's first book and it is value for money. He starts from the premise that defence is a very broad concept indeed and is not restricted to bad positions, but can also include good or equal positions. For example, how many times do we encounter strategically good positions requiring the parrying of a temporary initiative?" - Mark Robertson, Weekend Chess

Mihail Marin is a strong grandmaster from Romania. He achieved his first major success in international chess by qualifying for the interzonals in 1987. He has won the Romanian Championship on three occasions and has played in ten Olympiads. For several years he was editor of the magazine Chess Extrapress.

"...the part I found most interesting were the chapters covering defence by means of sacrifices." - John Pugh, Chess Post

"The author of Secrets of Chess Defence may not be that familiar to the general chess public, but he will be once this book receives well-deserved acclaim. Romanian GM Mihai Marin has written a wonderful book that is not only educational but also funny. Amazingly no translator is credited. Either Marin is completely at home writing in English or editor Burgess has done an outstanding job preserving the author's voice as he relates anecdotes from his days playing on the Romanian national team. Secrets of Chess Defence covers many subjects that have been poorly dealt with in the chess literature including Two Minor Pieces for a Rook and the Economy of Resources in Defense. Reading this book one cannot help but appreciate that Marin possesses a high level of chess culture. My advice is buy Watson and Marin's books and call in sick to work for a couple weeks!" - John Donal

HASH(0x913c0a68) von 5 Sternen A literary classic of the chess world. 20. März 2006
Von Chess Addict - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I think this must be one of the literary classics of the chess world. The English is impeccable, in a slightly formal, sometimes quizzical, sometimes delightfully unexpected way. This should be no surprise from an author who weaves his creation around quotes from Shakespeare and the Bible - but Marin is Romanian, and lists books in various other Eastern European languages in his Bibliography.

It has never been easy to convince normal human chess-beings that defence can be exciting. However, looking at the chapter titles of this book, you might imagine that attack was the boring part! Sacrifices are exciting, right? No fewer than five (of the sixteen) chapters are devoted to sacrifices, and then there are chapters on perpetual check and stalemate, which are also almost always set up with sacrifices. There is also 'The King as a Fighting Unit' which has some examples that you will believe must be magical!

As befits a gentleman with such impeccable grammar, Marin is a lover of the classics. Time after time he demonstrates how the greats of yesteryear were every bit as insightful and as skilled in calculation as modern grandmasters. But this isn't a

historical collection; most of the games are from the cut-throat modern era, many of them Marin's own, with little anecdotes that place you right in centre stage in crucial matches. It's a really good feeling to win a game and earn a prize, but it's also great to be the guy that saves a half-point that wins the match for the team!

HASH(0x913c0744) von 5 Sternen Stick to Chess 17. April 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
While this isn't a bad book, it's not in the same league as the Soltis and Crouch books. What's annoying about the book is the profusion of religious quotes. If you are going to write a book about chess, stick to chess. If you want to muse about religion and chess, go play on the church chess team.
