Intuition plays a central role in decision making and understanding its function is essential if you want to improve your playing strength. Players who try to calculate everything through to the end often get lost in a maze of variations, while those who use intuition to its full extent save both time and energy for the decisive moments in the game. This book is the first to be devoted to the role of intuition in chess. It shows how the reader can enable their intuition to reach its full potential and how to learn to distinguish between the positions in which one should rely on intuition and those in which one should be analytical.

Both authors are high-class writers and players. They draw on examples from modern practice and from classical games, with a particular focus on players whose intuition was legendary, such as Mikhail Tal. The authors pay particular attention to the role of intuition in sacrifices, whether with attacking or defensive intentions or for purely positional reasons.
