The game continued: The text weakens the e6 pawn. What he overlooked was 1 … e5!
If now 24 … h6 25 h5. A losing move. Correct is 25 … fxg4. Strangely enough, the game is ultimately decided on the other wing. Now the advance of the e-pawn decides. A fine achievement. Another case, with pawns on both wings and a pair of rooks on the board, where a bishop is manifestly superior to a rather cramped knight. Fearing g3—g4, followed possibly by g4—g5, Black further weakens his pawn formation.
A textbook example. As in the game between the same adversaries, the superiority of the bishop over the knight again asserts itself. A timely exchange. His pawn advantage is meaningless. Sacrificing a pawn to activate his king. Putting Black in zugzwang.

Dimitri Komarov. It's a very good book for developing players I don't think books hold a candle to the videos on Chess. I dont think My System is designed for a certain strength of player.

Some possibilities at various levels: Attacking Play by James Plaskett https: Move by Move by Adam Hunt https: In particular, I loved Rios' exposition of White's plan of exerting queenside pressure against Hedgehog systems. I'd seen one of the games he quotes in his chapter but I'd never remotely made any link to a structured way of fighting the Hedgehog structure, so this chapter was a real eye-opener for me In conclusion, warmly recommended.
Lots to learn! Each chapter defines the structures, explains the typical characteristics and shows the plans for both White and Black. The reader participates by assessing positions and invariably receives useful tips for practical play. Move by Move by Thomas Engqvist "Engqvist gives us a rare treat and a genuine, sympathetic understanding of one of chess' greats who nowadays tends to gets lost in the shuffle!
One can get some idea of the lasting scope of the respect for My System by looking at: Also, My System has accumulated some direct negative commentary over the years.

A Reappraisal by Raymond Keene explains his] thinking and influence on the modern game in a far more lucid and accessible way. The books that are most highly thought of are not necessarily the most useful. Go with those that you find to be readable; A lot of things in there is sheer provocation, and it does need an expereienced player to know what exactly must be taken at its face value.
I love 'My System', and I have read it cover to cover one dozen times, but suggesting it to a class player is an entirely different matter. Nigel Short has claimed that 'My System' should be banned.
Stratos Grivas says that the book is very bad. I don't share their opinion, but I am pretty sure that there are more useful reads for class players out there. Not everything in it has stood the test of time, I think the title is usually given as The Art of Positional Play. It was originally in descriptive 1 P-K4 P-K4 notation, but, somewhere along the way, an algebraic 1 e4 e5 revision was created. Another Reshevsky book was a collection of his games. Wilhelm Steinitz, first world champion, almost single-handedly established the ground-rules for modern positional chess.
