Jacob has written three books on attacking chess. How relevant are they to the course?
First of all, let’s make clear that the course is not a reproduction of the books. A few examples from Attacking Manual 1 may be featured in the lessons, where they are best at illustrating a theme, as many have not read the book. The games used in the Academy lessons will be recent games, while the Camp lessons will be mainly based on the participants’ own games.
Secondly, it is not required to have read the books. You may want to read Attacking Manual 1 before or after the camp, in order to go deeper into the themes. As always, the ideas can be explained in 30 seconds, but to learn to apply them takes a lot of investigation and practice.
For those who want to push themselves, Grandmaster Preparation – Attack & Defence offers about 100 hours of training material for after the camp.
Attacking Manual 2 offers additional attacking games and typical scenarios.
