Defend to the End!

One of the most important skills a chessplayer needs is the ability to defend a position that is under siege. In this third volume in the highly acclaimed, best-selling ChessCafe Puzzle Book series, International Grandmaster Karsten Müller, along with International Master Merijn van Delft, examines and expounds upon the vital defensive concepts and techniques used to repulse enemy attacks.

Major topics include (1) Principles and methods of defend­ing; (2) Defending against a direct attack on the king; (3) Countering the initiative; (4) Saving the draw; (5) Passive versus active defense; and (6) Use and development of counterplay

Many of the world's greatest players - Steinitz, Lasker, Petrosian - were famous for their legendary defensive skills. Let co-authors Karsten Müller and Merijn van Delft show you how you can Test and Improve Your Defensive Skill.
