My name is Mauricio Flores Rios, and I am a 26-year-old Grandmaster of chess from Chile. I started playing chess when I was 10 and in order to improve I trained mostly on my own. I gained most of my knowledge from chess books, as well as the analysis of my own games.
The chess accomplishments of which I am proud the most is winning the Montcada International Championship (Spain) in 2013, against a field of 20 GMs.
I am very interested in the study of chess strategy, and I wrote the book Chess Structures . hoping to teach readers what I know, as well as to fill up what I considered a major gap in chess literature. My hope is that my book not only teaches chess strategy within the right context, but also encourages others to follow this systematic study of the game, always keeping in mind that the pawn structure is the single most important factor when studying a position.
