Book DescriptionThe Chess Terrorist's Handbook is a collection of deeply annotated chess games drawn from Leonid Shamkovich's forty years of tournament combat against such players as David Bronstein, Mikhail Tal and Boris Spassky. The first chapter charts some of the hazards lurking in the opening for unsuspecting victims - a selection of miniatures, quick kills that prove even strong players can find themselves wrecked barely out of the harbor. Subsequent chapters contain instructive examples of attach and counterattack, of mistakes and combinations in the middlegame, and of typical middlegame motifs.

  • Soviet Chess
    This seems to be regarded as the West's answer to "The Soviet School of Chess" by Alexander Kotov ISBN 4871878198 who asserts superiority in the Soviet playing style. However, those who say that are mistaken. This book by a New Zealander who emigrated to England because of the greater opportunities to play chess there, fully concurs with Kotov that the Soviet players were the best in the world.
