Thanks for the recommendations! If so, what do you make of them and which ones did you read? The reviews on Amazon are sparse, but chesscafe. I think his best book is Just the Facts he co wrote with Nikolay Krogius. This is easier than the Pocket book which I have gone through several times. The book is fairly basic but is said admittedly by the author!

No idea if Americans or Russians! But the idiomatic "greater the odds" usage you point out is rather common over here, and so I was wondering about the usage in Britain. My favourite use of the word is in brave Horatius facing fearful odds, though. Makes sense. Every player except the world champ will care about their rating. Though Alburt may have said this a long time ago, when times were different.
