Practical Decisions in Critical Moments

The test positions in this instructive book cover the entire spectrum of what a modern club player should know. The reader is invited to find tactical blows, deep strategic maneuvers, opening traps, standard endgame plans and other principles in action.

Sarhan Guliev and his brother Logman Guliev have carefully selected the positions from their own games. That is why these puzzles are largely unknown outside the former Soviet Union. The fact that the tests originate from real games guarantees that they are practical, not artificial. The solutions rarely involve spectacular fireworks, as is the case in most chess puzzle books. Instead, you may be asked to find a quiet move or a reasoned evaluation.

In their solutions the Guliev brothers clearly explain the underlying ideas and the principles involved. They always offer a general conclusion and have added thought-provoking and entertaining aphorisms. Solving the puzzles in this unusual and entertaining book is a most effective way to improve your chess. It will help you develop a vital skill: the ability to make practical decisions in critical moments.

Sarhan Guliev is an International Grandmaster and FIDE Senior Coach. He has won the championship of Azerbaijan three times and is a highly experienced chess teacher, coach and writer. His previous book with New In Chess was Winning Chess Manoeuvres. Sarhan's brother Logman Guliev is an International Master.

“The best book in this genre that I have seen in recent times. The reader has to face the same problems as during a real game. Working diligently with this entertaining work will improve the performance of a wide range of club players. “Above all their strategic and analytical skills.” -- Uwe Bekemann, German Correspondence Chess Federation
