About The Chess Openings: Traps and Zaps - Pandolfini

Chess Openings: Traps and Zaps is a powerful, pragmatic entry into a heretofore remote area of chess theory that will have a profound influence on every player's game. Included are a glossary of openings that lists all the classical "textbook" variations for comparison and reference and a tactical index. This book consists of 202 short "openers" typical of average players, arranged according to the classical opening variations and by level of difficulty. Each example includes:
  • the name of the overriding tactic
  • the name of the opening
  • a scenario that sets up the tactic to be learned
  • an interpretation that explains why the loser went wrong, how he could have avoided the trap, and what he should have done instead
  • a review of important principles and useful guidelines to reinforce each lesson.
