How to beat IM Mashafizul for dummies !?

DATCC's blog mentioned that Malaysian no.1 player - IM Mashafizul has registered and will play in the coming DATCC Maverick Rapid Chess Weekend which will be held on 27th February 2011 (Sunday) at DATCC.

It's have been quite sometimes since Malaysian top 5 players playing in the rapid weekender tournament so to have this rare opportunity to play against the no.1 is a chance for lesser mortal like me to play and bite the bullet against the very best!

However i will not play at the Maverick but i will come during the tournament to snap some photos and hopefully get some games and results to be posted in this blog.

For lesser mortals {read patzers or dummies  :) } who doesn't have a single clue about how to beat IM Mashafizul (photo left), this is my tips - click here

There are lots of Mas's games that i (with Fritz/Rybka) have annotated and hopefully this will help. It's not like , say ....   How To Beat IM Mashafizul For Dummies book but i think it will help. The Dummies books is actually an extensive series of instructional / reference books which are intended to present non-intimidating guides for readers new to the various topics covered.

To my friend Mas, i hope you don't mind. I surely confidence that your vast experienced, knowledge and skill is still much superior then the weekenders. My advice to you is to play openings you never played before !?

Aaaahh sorry, yes the link doesn't work butI've correct it. Try again.

Thanks Jimmy for pointing the error. I think 'the book' not only useful for dummies but also for mortals players!

That's why there are a quote 'A Refernce For The rest Of Us'at the bottom of the book's cover!:)
