1001 Winning Chess Sacrifices and Combinations

240 pages, paperback, Russel, 1. edition 2014

Incl. Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

1001 Winning Chess Sacrifices and Combinations is the companion volume to Reinfeld's 1001 Brilliant Ways to Checkmate . Of course each book can be taken on its own, but together they make a wonderful collection, and cover the full range of tactical chess. And they are now both available in 21st-century editions, using modern algebraic notation .

Reinfeld has arranged hisquiz positions so that they fall into orderly chapters, each with a common theme. Still, the degree of difficulty varies widely. Easiest are one move shots, suitable for players starting out. Most difficult are the examples that run seven moves and more; some of these may even stump an ordinary master.

Most of all, this is a book of combinative ideas, all designed to enhance your arsenal of weapons . The first step toward mastery is to become familiar with the different types of tactical motifs. The second step is to study a great many examples of these tactical themes.
