'Let\''s face facts: everyone enjoys winning. And the only thing better than winning is to win quickly!
Mistakes are often made in the early part of the game - at all levels of chess - but a key skill is to recognise these critical moments as they happen and to exploit them with maximum efficiency. This is a skill which Grandmaster Simon Williams addresses in this book. Using instructive and entertaining games in which one side wins quickly, he examines all the typical mistakes chess players make in the opening and early middlegame, how you should look to exploit them, and how to avoid falling into similar traps yourself.
All too often opponents are let off the hook, mistakes go unpunished and the game drags on. Don\''t let this happen to you - become a ruthless winner!
