Chess federation of Montenegro, as the organiser of European Youth Championship 2005 in Herceg Novi, gifted all the participants with the book written by FIDE coach and international chess master Slobodan Mirkovic - "Chess school".

In making that decision we followed the principle that it was better that young chess players, instead of a pencil, a badge or some other souvenir, take home the book which can help them in their chess development.

Impressions of the participants and their companions were more than favourable. Quality of the book proved to be on an enviable level and the book contained useful examples for all generations and all levels of knowledge of young chess players.

When at the beginning of this year Slobodan Mirkovic prepared the sequel of the book "Chess school" and offered establishment of cooperation with us, the Organizational Board of the tournament had no dilemma.

So now, as an edition specially prepared for this Championship and intended to all participants, there has come out "Chess school 2".

Introduction of chess in schools is definitely the noblest mission which can be carried out in a country. Many chess nations have come a long way in this project, some are preparing for it. In the milieu where this project has a chance of gaining ground, good manuals and books with quality games and chess tasks are ccrtainly needed. One should not forget that Slobodan Mirkovic is the author of the system for classification of chess combinations, which is accepted and recognized in chess world today.

For all the above mentioncd, with the book "Chess school 2" we wish all participants of European Youth Championship 2006 to make progress in chess as fast and quality as possible. If we have contributed in this regard we will be proud.
