[lang_nl]Schaakverbetering volgens GM Jonathan Rowson[/lang_nl][lang_en]Chess improvement according to GM Jonathan Rowson[/lang_en]

[lang_nl]Vandaag presenteer ik het tweede interview dat ik deed op zaterday 26 mei, met GM Jonathan Rowson. Hij had net een uur daarvoor zijn partij tegen Hedinn Steimgrimsson be?ɬ´indigd en ondanks het feit dat de partij in remise was ge?ɬ´indigd terwijl hij waarschijnlijk gewonnen had gestaan, trof ik hem in een goede stemming. Het interview gaat over welke drie van zijn boeken hij het aangenaamst vond om te schrijven, over zijn plannen voor een volgend boek, over schaakverbetering in het algemeen, over het geheim achter zijn eigen successen (driemaal Brits kampioen), over het oefenenen van beslissingen nemen en over zijn laatste boek Chess for Zebras. Aan het eind zie je enkele korte fragmenten van zijn lezing in Porto Mannu. Veel plezier![/lang_nl][lang_en]Today I present the second interview I did on Saturday, May 26th which was with GM Jonathan Rowson. He had finished his last round game against Hedinn Steimgrimsson about an hour before but despite his draw which probably should have been a win, I caught him in a good mood. The interview is about which of his three books he liked writing most, about future plans in writing, about chess improvement in general, about the secret behind his own successes (three times British champion), about practicing decision making, and about his last book Chess for Zebras. At the end you see a few small fragments of his lecture he did in Porto Mannu. Enjoy![/lang_en]

Thanks for sharing this. I have read Rowson's last two books and found them unique. It is very rare to find a good chess player writing so honestly and sharing his deepest thoughts and knowledge about the game. Thanks Jonathan.

Peter,

In een zeer korte tijd is dit een van mijn favoriete schaak-websites geworden.
Prachtig werk bij Corus!
Fraaie interviews met Aagaard en Rowson (3 zeer mooie boeken op zijn conto!).
Keep up the good work!
