Book DescriptionBoth players are gunning for each other's kings. Whose attack will break through first? This is a typical scenario in chess games. In such tense battles where one slip can be fatal, often it's a case of 'who dares wins'. But it's not enough to throw your pieces up the board and hope for the best. To succeed you need to acquire sophisticated attacking and defensive skills. The good news is that they can easily be learned, remembered and put into practice.

In this book, Lorin D'Costa presents a comprehensive study of opposite-side castling and the crucial techniques needed both in attack and defence. He tackles all the key subjects, including sacrificing, speed of attack, strong and weak defensive formations, when to delay or avoid castling, and much more. Studying this book will allow you to approach these frequent situations with confidence.

*An essential guide to attacking and defending the king
*Includes more than 50 instructive and entertaining games
*Covers the crucial tactical and positional ideas

Lorin D'Costa is an International Master, with one Grandmaster norm, and is one of the most rapidly improving players in the UK.
