Product Details

Kasparov once said that even an average chess player can find the same moves in grandmaster games as much as 70 percent of the time and any grandmaster can find the next 25 percent. Packed with tips, tricks, and practical exercises, this book identifies the kinds of moves and techniques used to determine those moves commonly found by grandmasters.

This book covers such topics as:

  • mysterious rook pawn moves
  • tacking
  • piece nullification
  • "King feeling"
  • and much more
Written by one of our best-loved chess authors in his trademark chatty, accessible but always informative style, "What it Takes to Become a Grandmaster" reveals practical, understandable theory and techniques that take some of the mystery out of common grandmaster moves.
