Product Details

Tactics, tricks and traps! Every chess player loves to win, but nothing compares to winning with a flourish. How happy we are when the tactics work and we decide a game with a cunning trick, a devilish trap or a delightful coup de grace! The Open Games, more than any other segment of the entire opening spectrum, have always given rise to spectacular miniatures and fascinating sacrifices. For, what is more beautiful than ancient King's Gambit slug-fests or modern classics by Kasparov, Short, Shirov and other war-horses. In this book you will find more than 250 carefully selected and expertly annotated Open games full of unexpected turns and brilliant surprise attacks. You can study these games or just enjoy them, but either way they will end up making you a stronger player!

Reviews
  • "A high quality product that is particularly appropriate to give the average club and tournament player an overall grasp on the dangers and opportunities available in a given opening." -- IM John Watson - TWIC
  • "Many of the games can be studied without a chess board and pieces." -- Schaakmagazine (Netherlands)
  • "An excellent primer or book to stimulate ideas." -- British Federation for Correspondence Chess
  • "The annotations are to the point, detailed but not so much as to lose the reader. This book should be a pleasurable way for those below 2200 to master the fundamentals of tactical play in semi-open games." -- IM John Donaldson
