Summary: Readers will learn sure-fire tactics and combinations from one of the world's top chess players.
Attack? Defend? Swap pieces? Tactics are the watchdogs of strategy that take advantage of short-term opportunities to trap or ambush opponents and quite possibly change the course of a game in a single move. Why should players only hope that opponents will blunder when International Grandmaster Yasser Seirawan can show them how to put the tactics of the world's chess legends to work.
Choose from the double attack, the pin, the skewer, deflection, the decor, x-rays, windmills, and many more time-tested tactics.
Using classic board situations arranged in chapters by tactical themes, Seirawan teaches readers how to:
>Plan the entire game from the very first move
>Think ahead, step-by-step, anticipating every obstacle opponents can throw their way
>Position themselves for the smashing combination and endgame they have always dreamed of
Board positions from actual games played by history's great,chess tacticians are provided throughout. Review tests for each topic let them track their improvement. In no time they will be playing better, with more confidence than they ever thought possible.
