It's Your Move (Everyman Chess)by Chris Ward
Synopses & Reviews
Feeling up to a challenge? In this highly original and instructive self-test book, Grandmaster Chris Ward presents a selection of carefully chosen puzzles to solve. Hot on the heels of his very successful "It's Your Move and "Improvers It's Your Move, comes "It's Your Move: Tough Puzzles, which this time aims to rack the brains of even the most experienced chess players.
The puzzles might be a bit more difficult this time but, in the same style of the previous two books, the reader is once again helped by the choice of five plausible plans and has to decide which is the most likely to succeed. The answers then identify the most promising plan and explain why the other choices are less attractive. Instead of opting for the traditional 'check, check, mate ... mate!' type of puzzles, Ward concentrates on situations which are much more likely to occur in practical games.
This book provides the reader with a selection of puzzles that simulate real game scenarios, offering readers a choice of tempting alternatives and requiring them to pick the best
A test yourself book for improving club chess players.
In this highly original and instructive test-yourself book, Chris Ward presents a selection of 50 carefully chosen puzzles for you to solve. In a welcome departure from the usual 'White to play and mate in three' scenarios, he focuses on the type of critical situations that occur in nearly every game. The reader is given a choice of five plausible plans for each position and has to decide which is the most likely to succeed. The puzzles aren't easy - but then chess isn't a simple game!
