The Global eBook Middlegame Collaborative



The Global eBook Middlegame Collaborative, today announces its inception.

Phaedrus, and Transformation, have organized themselves as a cooperative effort, to create an eBook generated from the lesser known--but perhaps the most comprehensively useful--of Lazlo Polgar's three books often referred to as Bricks. To do so alone would exhaust most mortals, so we purport to accomplish this by combined and shared efforts upon Polgar's comprehensive book: 'Chess Middlegame, 77 Types in 4,158 Positions'.

Ardent students of systematic chess improvement are invited to join. We only ask for your time, and necessarily of course, confidentiality as to our communications such as email and identities.



We do not require that you have any chess pedigree as to knowledge or rating or skill, but only readiness to begin in the next month in your weekly contribution of hours and effort. What you will get in the end is the same 4,000+ chessBase cbv file that we all will share and the interpersonal discoveries realized in collaboration in it's best sense.

In the first phase, ten of us will collaborate in creating a powerful chess middlegame study and teaching tool, in each rendering some 320 positions into pgn files, from Polgar's book. Sir Pino has generously offered to join our efforts, which means that we still have room for seven more persons.

The reward will be your possession of a powerful tool suitable for almost a lifetime of chess study. You will be able to do advanced thematic training with all the advantages which eBooks provide such as 'Annotations and Variations', 'Search', and 'Evaluation and testing lines' by chess engines. The printed book offers several disadvantages such as its being out of print and thus extremely costly to furnish; it is also not very easy to handle in being very thick and heavy. Moreover, our eBook will be an improvement upon the original, as it is already well known that the book can either be incomplete or have faulty solutions.

Of course, more needs to be discussed about phase two and phase three, and specifics about what is involved concerning agreements as to confidentiality and use since this is not a commercial venture and is for private use. For more information you can email us at globalmiddlegame@gmail.com.

Digitizing Polgar's book sounds like a very educational undertaking. I wish all of you the best of luck in realizing your goal! I'm not up-to-date with respect to copyright issues, but the folks who digitized Polgar's 5334 took some steps to limit its distribution only to folks who could prove they had supported the Polgars by buying a copy of their book--such steps might be wise legally & ethically. But you two say you have been exchanging thousands of messages so probably you've already covered these bases and more. :)

cc note back to you at my blog already:
-------------------

'@likeForests: first, we already own copies of the book.

second, this is no different than the hundreds of cbv files found at Ossimitz for years, or gambitbooks.com.

i do know of cases where Murray Chandler of Gambit Chess Publications Inc (not to be confused with gambitbooks above) came down hard, and didn't allow any of their books WHICH HAD BEEN RENDERED TO PGN and MADE AVAILABLE for public used there, especially at Ossimitz, but that was even seven or more years ago.

no one can prevent us from making a private copy, as many do of The Art of Attack or other classics. the issue is not the copy, but public domain.

the issue is not electron files, but how they are distributed, if at all. this is a private copy.

i cannot share personal details about our members, but one of them has a legal background.

speaking of long term plans, if we are a big success, we already have a plan to contact Polgar himself and ask him, 'do you want to go further with this? we have already done much word on top of yours'.

this issue is already writen into our 'Doc' as indicated.

like i said, a lot of planning and review is already in place. dk'
