Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows whether there is a book or a software that deals strictly with amateurs' games against Masters, IM or higher. Reason why is because I would like to understand how a superior player wins against simple amateurs who lack positional understanding of a game. As an example, I would like to see games between 's or better against 's or thereabouts. Of course these games would have to be part of Open Tournaments that take place all over the country
Amateur vs. World Champion
Tartajubow On Chess II: Chess Master vs Chess Amateur
Soon after Tal won the match vs. Mikhail Botvinnik and became the world champion, a friend of his asked for a favor. The friend was a doctor in a psychiatric hospital and had an unusual patient. The doctor had seen many patients who pretended to be Napoleon, Beethoven or another historical figure, but this new patient was telling everyone that he was the world chess champion. Tal promised to help and some time later he paid a visit to the doctor. And so the game started.
A lot of players wonder, what are the main differences between an ordinary player and a chess master? Is that the fact that masters can calculate many more moves ahead and instantly find 5 move tactics? Or it has to do with experience, intuition and luck? Or there is something else involved?
In addition, the mistakes the amateur makes are pretty similar to the ones I make in my own games. My question is : Apart from Euwe's Chess Master vs. Chess Amateur, are there any other books that showcase games like this?
