Chess for Tigers was soon an insider tip among chess players after it was published in the late 1970s. How do I beat a superior opponent? What do I do in dead-drawn positions? How do I win a winning position? How should I manage the clock? Simon Webb, an experienced and talented International Master, had original answers to all of these and a dozen other questions that are not in the standard textbooks to this day. You don't win by looking for the objectively best move, but by playing like a tiger and adapting smoothly to the respective combat situation (the so-called practical playing conditions). Simon Webb has thus succeeded in creating a rare piece of practical chess psychology by using examples from master practice to uncover and ruthlessly analyze typical sources of error in both opponents and yourself. Since then, countless chess players have sworn by Webb's recipes, which have earned them a lot of points and which he always spices up with a good pinch of English humor. Finally, a new edition with additional chapters and some updates to the main text is available in a completely new translation.
