After looking back to 1916, the well-known chess author and FIDE master Martin Weteschnik guides the reader through the events of the 2015/16 chess year. Once again, the year was filled with exciting and top-class chess events galore: World Cup in Baku, London Classic, Top Open Doha with World Champion Magnus Carlsen, Wijk aan Zee, Blitz and Rapid World Championships in Berlin, European Team Championship in Reykjavik, Candidates Tournament in Moscow, Altibox Norway Chess Super Tournament in Stavanger and the Sinquefield Cup in St. Louis, where "chess pensioner" Garry Kasparov took part in a blitz match with the young super grandmaster generation and showed that he can still do it!

The reader can experience how the best players in the world fight for the top spot and how more and more young players are causing a stir, especially the Chinese. The author presents the best combinations from these events with detailed commentary and presents them to the reader in the following sections:

  • Bundesliga & other team fights from near and far
  • Chess in Germany

  • Chess international
  • Youth chess

selected combinations to solve, learn and enjoy.

With 439 tasks, positions and game fragments, the Chess Tactics Yearbook 2017 is the largest collection of the latest chess tactics on the market and offers readers of all skill levels entertaining and instructive examples that can also improve their own game.

160 pages, 1 edition 2016, hardcover.
