212 Surprising Checkmates

152 pages, paperback, Russel, 1. edition 2011.

Incl. 7% Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

With this instructive manual, players can learn to concentrate on one-, two- and three-move checkmates, focusing on their opponents' last moves and keeping alert to new possiblities, rather than getting blinded by previous calculations.

Written by two experienced chess trainers, this volume's first 100 exercises concern checkmates in one move, while the remaining exercises represent game-like positions for checkmates in two and three moves. All are designed to increase a player's skill and speed analyzing and solving chess problems.
