Combinations are among the most impressive tools used in chess. The consistent execution of several well-considered and connected moves that force the opponent to react in a very specific way is probably the supreme discipline of tactics.

In general, combinations are differentiated according to their respective objectives. For example, there are those that lead to a positional advantage, to the gain of material or - as the crowning glory of a chess game - end in an inevitable checkmate.
The possibility of a combination can arise in different ways in every game. Either through faulty play by one side or the other, or through a player deliberately moving his pieces into a position that makes a combination possible. Often, pawns or even pieces are sacrificed at the start of a combination in order to achieve the desired goal.
During his lifetime, Kurt Richter was known and feared for his aggressive style of play, with which he knew how to force victory by using surprising material sacrifices and skilful combinations.
With his book, the author offers a true treasure trove of positions that still bring joy to every interested chess player today and which also serve to improve the understanding of positions - and thus also the playing strength.
399 carefully selected combinations provide the best entertainment in an exciting and often surprising way. All positions are taken from actual games and are provided with the corresponding source data. And now it's your turn!
