Product Details

Combinations are the central element in chess; they make the game so magical and captivating. The beautiful point of sacrificing a queen, the strongest piece, in order to checkmate with a lowly pawn brings a smile of joy to all chess lovers. Virtually all chess games possess a combination, either one hidden in the shadows of analysis carefully avoided or one that provides a decisive blow.

Winning Chess Combinations is a unique work that doesn't merely repeat the wonderfully rich and vast numbers of combinations, asking readers to solve a particular diagrammed position; it is a work that is far more realistic. A combination involves a sacrifice upsetting the balance of forces, but will it work or tragically boomerang? The reader is invited to solve this critical question by identifying the advantages that a specific position holds which might make the combination successful. Winning Chess Combinations is the seventh in Yasser Seirawan's highly acclaimed Winning Chess Series - probably the best-selling series of chess books ever published.

Author Yasser Seirawan is the highest-rated American chess professional on the World Chess Federation's rating ladder and the first American to vie for the World Championship title since Bobby Fischer. He is a three-time US Champion, the 1989 Western Hemisphere Champion and an eight-time member of the US Chess Olympiad team. Currently one of the world's top-ranked chess players, he is one of only a handful of players to have defeated world champions Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov in tournament play.
