Know When (And Where!) to Look for Winning Combinations

Product Code: B0124NIC

If only life was as straightforward as a book of chess exercises! If only someone would tap you on the shoulder every time the moment to show your tactical skills has arrived!

However, the reality is that during a game you are on your own. Nobody will whisper in your ear when you have reached a position that is, in fact, a tactical puzzle and all you have to do is solve it.

Emmanuel Neiman offers help. He has identified a number of signals that tell you that somewhere in the position you are looking at there is a tactical blow just waiting to be found. What you need is a way to read those signals. What you need, and what Neiman helps you to acquire, is a Chess Tactics Antenna.

In this trail-blazing book, Emmanuel Neiman presents the seven main signals that help you to determine the moment you must start looking for a win. He also teaches you, with lots of instructive examples, how to interpret these signals and how to find the killer move.

Emmanuel Neiman is a FIDE master who teaches chess in his home country France. He has written several highly successful books on chess tactics and chess training. With his co-author Yochanan Afek he won the 2011 Chess Cafe Book of the Year Award for "Invisible Chess Moves": Discover Your Blind Spots and Stop Overlooking Simple Wins.

This robust, multipurpose opening system looks quiet, like a sleeping lion - hence the name. But when this predator is provoked, and the game heats up, Black eats its prey in an extremely swift and efficient way.
