Matthew Sadler’s writings

August 16, 2016

One of the very best chess writers at the moment is the English GM Matthew Sadler.


Whilst on holiday, I have enjoyed reading his (and Natasha Regan's) excellent book Chess for Life.

A book to savour and study: wonderful chapters on several players, but I particularly enjoyed those on Sergey Tiviakov and Keith Arkell.

A few years ago, I read Matthew's 'Study Chess', which is also worth a read: it is on my re-read list, having so much enjoyed Chess for Life and through it found his great website,

The site has a 'subscribe to' facility, through which I now get email alerts, and have just played through a wonderfully annotated game of Matthew's. Matthew's great skill is explaining in words more than calculations, giving his readers a lot of educational material.

How Matthew would have won from this position, the type of advantage we have all had over the years (and often permitted to fritter out to a draw) is very instructive. See his article for his explanation.
