Chess Tactics and Checkmates by Tony Gillam
Book DescriptionOnce you know how to move the chess pieces and you can recognise a checkmate, but what do you do now? This book will take you the next step: to the exciting world of chess tactics. Tactics involve thinking ahead, finding ways to win your opponent's pieces without losing your own. In this book you will find many of the tactical tricks used by the best players, including how to make use of pins, forks and skewers to win your games. One of the most satisfying things in chess is to checkmate your opponent's king - especially if this can be done in style. Author Tony Gillam reveals how to spot an opportunity with hundreds of examples of forced checkmate each explained step by step with clear diagrams.
