Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is not just a book for kids - for ‘Dad read any opponent who beats you regularly! This book teaches the 50 Deadly Checkmates - basic attacking patterns that occur repeatedly in games between players of all standards. Each mating motif is carefully and simply explained, and several illustrative examples are given. A final test enables the reader to grade his pattern recognition abilities, and the last chapter explains what to do if your Dad is Garry Kasparov. Fun, instructive - and guaranteed to improve your game.

Synopsis:

Describes how expert chess players recognize and use distinctive patterns of moves, and offers a collection of fifty combinations of moves that lead to checkmates.

Synopsis:

This book explains that the best way to beat a stronger opponent (whether a friend, a clubmate, or even Dad) is in the opening stages of the game and shows the 50 most effective opening traps that chess masters use to win games.
