In chess, the learning process can be a bit of a grind but books like this make things a little easier. As I understand it the way to play dynamic chess is to improve piece co-ordination which can be achieved by opening lines. As explained in the book chess can be static or dynamic but the best players understand the dynamic quality of chess better than most. What have I learnt? That dynamic factors such as initiative and creating open lines is probably a more effective way of playing chess than static closed positions; although this can depend on both ability and style, I prefer to play chess which offers an elememnt of risk so am persuaded by taking a dynamic approach as outlines in this book. Whether this translates into winning my next chess competition remains to be seen.
