Most chess games are not won – they are lost. Many instructional chess books tell you how to improve a position when it is already (or may be) favorable. This book offers help when you definitely do not have the advantage. Every chess player needs a solid arsenal of defensive techniques. This book covers them all – counterplay, when to accept sacrifices, how to anticipate short- and long-term threats, and how to minimise losses. It also helps you create a strong underlying psychological framework for defensive techniques – it teaches you how to stay cool under fire, how to stonewall and how to exploit your opponent's weaknesses.
