Resumen del libro

Libro en inglés Magnus Carlsen es, posiblemente, el jugador más fuerte de todos los tiempos. Su dominio es tal que cada derrota suya general un enorme impacto; nos recuerdan que incluso él pasa por momentos en los que su juego es más débil. De hecho, identificar la raíz de dichas derrotas puede suponer una lección tremendamente valiosa para todos los jugadores. La búsqueda del autor, Cyrus Lakdawala, comienza con una serie de victorias y empates del noruego para demostrar lo increíblemente difícil que es derrotarle. El arsenal del Campeón del Mundo es impresionante: una habilidad superlativa para el cálculo, intuición cercana a la perfección, probablemente la mejor técnica en el final de todos los tiempos, un repertorio amplio y creativo de aperturas, etc. Magnus Carlsen is arguably the strongest player of all time. His dominance is such that every loss comes as a shock. They remind us that even he has his weak moments. In fact, identifying the root causes of his losses holds valuable lessons for all players. Cyrus Lakdawala’s search starts with a series of Magnus wins and draws to give the reader a feel for how incredibly difficult it is to beat him. The World Champion’s arsenal is awesome: a superlative ability to calculate, near-perfect intuition, probably the best endgame technique ever, a wide and creative opening repertoire, a willingness to unbalance the position almost anytime, and last but not least: his unparalleled will to win. How to Beat Magnus Carlsen has a thematic structure, which, together with Lakdawala’s uniquely accessible style, makes its lessons easy to digest. Sometimes even Magnus gets outplayed, sometimes he over-presses and goes over the cliff’s edge, and sometimes he fails to find the correct plan. And yes, even Magnus Carlsen commits straightforward blunders. Lakdawala explains the how and the why. It’s wonderful to have a World Champion who is not just incredibly strong, but who is also happy to experiment and take risks. That’s what makes Magnus Carlsen such a fascinating chess player. And that’s why he is the hero of this book. There is no doubt that Carlsen has examined all his losses under a microscope. If he benefits from this process, then so will we. Cyrus Lakdawala is an International Master who lives in San Diego, CA. He has been teaching chess for four decades and is a prolific and widely read author. Much acclaimed books of his are How Ulf Beats Black, Clinch It! and Winning Ugly in Chess. He twice won the Best Instructional Book Award of the Chess Journalists of America (CJA), in 2017 for Chess for Hawks and in 2020 for In the Zone: The Greatest Winning Streaks in Chess History. “Lakdawala writes in a charming and highly instructive manner.” -- Jeremy Silman, author of How to Reassess Your Chess “Lakdawala’s tone of voice is unique in chess literature; he is like a friend you have known for a long time. His qualities as a trainer and an author reinforce each other.” -- Thomas Binder, Glarean Magazine
