Sniper Chess Opening Created by ECF's F.M. Charlie Storey

Post by Charlie Storey » Mon Jul 18, 2011 10:37 am

Hi Guys,

Firstly, may I say if you are not interested in The Sniper please move on to a different post.

I would like some feedback on how you have taken to The Sniper.

Most of you are aware that I have written 'The Sniper Book' and there has been some controversy about it on other Forums - mainly unjustified but some valid points.

It has now been out since February and feedback is starting to filter down - mainly Positive but I am also open to intelligent critique.

I am mainly interested in the opinions of those that have studied (not read) the Sniper Book [EverymanChess] then reinforced it with watching the Sniper 2012 DVD's. It is from this starting point that opinions carry more weight - I am happy to answer questions to those that have studied this far but would politely request that no one asks questions that have not seen both - Thank You and I look forward to your comments.

This is a positive post that is looking to evolve the Sniper theory - please no overly critical or negative comments.

If you are keen to learn 'The Sniper Chess System' to Master Level please visit my e bay shop to order Books and DVD's on the subject: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Chess-DVD-Shop ... upplies-UK

Looking forward to a good debate.

Best Wishes - The Sniper Chief :wink: (And newbie to your forum)

I would be grateful if players could post any Chess Sniper Internet Media - Good or Bad! with your comments to create an informed centralised Sniper information bank which English players can have easy access to and use versus other Nationalities.

Cheers The Sniper Chief :)

Is it okay to copy the articles here - or do we need permission - even if I am the author and they are using my games / work?

Not sure to be honest?

I prefer if members copy stuff into here that they quote the original article or web site URL as needed just in case

Sniper breaking ground in America?

Post by Charlie Storey » Mon Jul 18, 2011 8:48 pm

Tim Harding Sniper Review.

I think I'm correct in thinking this guy created a great chess book that had a character called 'Harry Hacker.'

Could any reader remind me of its title as it was a book that helped enthuse me with chess back in the day and I'd like to recommend it to my juniors.

Best

Charlie

Harry Hacker

Thanks Richard,

It has a serious of fictitious characters done in a humorous pastiche.

That title does not fit the 'characters' especially well so I think that may not be the book, however, I would love to be proved wrong.

Charlie,

I think Richard is right. I can't find my copy right now, but I believe Better Chess for Average Players has illustrative games played by fictitious characters, such as Harry Hacker.

Charlie:
Harry Hacker, Mary Mashem. Johnny Brain etc. all feature in "Better Chess For Average Players".

I have a couple of copies and if you feel so inclined you may visit my store at http://www.abebooks.com/home/glynnsbooks

Hi Charlie.

I have a copy of...

Image

PM me an address and I'll send it to you as a gift.

Call it a thank you for that small coaching session you gave a
few years back in the analysis room at the Edinburgh Congress.

http://www.chessedinburgh.co.uk/chandle ... handID=321

(Coaching sessions in the analysis room, now there is a novel idea.) ;)

Re: The Sniper

I've spent the past 40 years refusing a1 Rooks with my
KID/Benoni/Grunfeld/Modern/Pirc/Dragon g7 Bishop.
I doubt if I'll start chopping it for a Knight on c3 to look at tripled pawns.

The old dog and new tricks syndrome.

Good Luck with it and the sales though.

Geoff

Ha Ha Geoff

That's brilliant.

To top up my Chess Coaching income I've just finished delivering Yellow Pages to my local community! (No Joke!)

Thanks to all that helped me find that book - I will contact in due course.

I just hope Harry was not moonlighting for News of The World.

Feel free to post any Sniper Media here that you have - I'd like it all on one thread for ease of access - it should act as a good resource for all Sniper practitioners.

Cheers - - Charlie.
