Philosophy And Psychology Of Chess Struggle

How to defeat the contender already in an opening? How to force an opponent to reflect deeply and to spend time?
It is necessary to put a problem in front of him - a new problem. It is necessary to think up a new move, a new idea - a novelty.
In the following articles we consider some variations of creation of a novelty: 1. A novelty found during a game, 2. A novelty which has been thought up at home. Then we give examples of application of practical novelties, moves or whole opening systems that are new and unexpected to a particular contender.
