Product Details

Like life, chess has its rules

  • Never cross the street before looking both ways.
  • Never discuss portable explosives in the airport security line.
  • Never overthrow the cut-off man.
  • Never download email from someone you don't know.
  • Never take the queen's knight pawn.
The difference is that your parents probably didn't tell you about chess. Save hours of head-scratching and uncertainty in your own games and understand why the masters make the moves they do:
  • The worst square for a White knight is b.2.
  • With rook vs. two knights, exchanging queens is worth a pawn.
  • Never capture the b.2 pawn with the queen.
  • Rooks united on the seventh are blind pigs.
  • The winner is the one who commits the next-to-last mistake.
Backed up with diagrams and illustrations to help you remember key principles, a glossary of essential chess terms and a rundown on all major openings, Chess Rules of Thumb will improve your chess play--and it's great fun to read!

Never buy a chess book that isn't fun!
