Wer sich genauer mit dem Thema Schach im Internet beschäftigen will kann dies nun dank des "alten" Mediums Buch tun.

Bei der Schachzentrale Rattmann ist ein Buch von keinem Geringeren als dem vierfachen Internet Ein-Minuten-Schach-Weltmeister GM Roland Schmaltz erschienen, in dem er alle wichtigen und auch zahlreiche kleinere Schachserver vorstellt und ihre Vor- und Nachteile charakterisiert.

Außerdem geht er auf die technischen Fragen beim Internet Schach ein, gibt Tipps und Tricks und geht der Frage nach, wie man Betrüger erkennt.

Außerdem berichtet er über interessante Seiten und Geschichten rund um das Schach im Internet, informiert über viele weitere Dinge, die man dabei wissen sollte, und geht auch auf verwandte Abarten des Schachs wie z.B. Fischerandom ein, die von verschiedenen Servern angeboten werden.

Mit einem Rückblick und einigen Gedanken über die Zukunft des Schachs im Internet schließt dieses interessante Buch, das für eine immer größer werdende Fangemeinde des Internet-Schachs durchaus interessant sein sollte. Das Buch hat 131 Seiten, ist kartoniert, in englischer Sprache und kostet 14,90 Euro.
