Beloved Grandmaster, Benjamin Finegold, announced his new book today: "Whose turn is it?" 

In this ground-breaking piece of literature, Benjamin Finegold shows us over 9000 positions where he asks the reader, Whose turn it is? The inspiration for such a book came from GM Finegold's frustration over the fact that improving chess players are trying to learn books like Dvoretsky Endgame Manual...when they don't know whose turn it is!: 

This clip on livestream is believed to have been the inspiration for his work

GM Finegold truly believes that to get good at chess, you first need to learn the fundamentals of "Whose turn is it?"

Today I present to you the a few positions from his ground-breaking book which you pre-order  on amazon here:
