Opening Tactics

Product Code: B0086EU

Book Description

Chess Camp is a new training system for beginning chessplayers, and for the parents and coaches who teach them. Starting with simple problems to illustrate key concepts, and then progressing to more complex positions, the student will learn by doing, methodically integrating new information with previous knowledge while building effective thinking habits at the board.

The seventh volume in this series, Opening Tactics, sets problems in more lifelike conditions, as they arise from standard openings and the winning tactical idea is not given away. Thus, the student will: 1) enhance his or her ability to think independently in real positions; 2) start to absorb typical themes from the chess openings; and 3) learn the need to take the opponent's threats into account.

  • Play Winning Chess
    'When most people learn to play chess, they usually memorize the movements of the pieces and then spend years pummeling away at each other with little rhyme and even less reason. Though I will show you how each piece leaps around, what it likes to do on holidays, the real purpose of this book is to teach you to understand the four major principles of my Seirawan method: force, time, space and pawn structure. Each is easy to understand and each is a weapon that will enable you to defeat most anyone you challenge to a game' -Yasser Seirawan
