Improve your chess with 300 selected tasks

Solving tactical problems is one of the most effective ways to improve your chess playing skills. This practical book presents 300 exercises, the instructive points of which are highlighted in the solutions.

There's something for everyone here. The first 64 problems are based on clear tactical moves or checkmates, such as those explained in the gambit bestsellers Dad, you're checkmated! and Chess Tactics for Kids. In practice, it is extremely important to defend tenaciously and look for opportunities to counterattack - this book contains both an innovative chapter dealing with these rarely covered topics, as well as endgame problems and exercises where the reader must decide how to bring an attack to a crowning conclusion.

Later chapters develop the ability to make difficult decisions on the chessboard. Attack, sacrifice, take material, defend or simplify - you decide! Principles and guidelines are highlighted, but also the most common sources of error. In the last section, which will prove a tough nut to crack even for very good players, the reader has to deal with the full complexity of modern chess, but some useful tips are given along the way.
