    Mistakes are often made in the early part of the game - at all levels of chess - but a key skill is to recognize these critical moments as they happen and to exploit them with maximum efficiency. This is a skill which Grandmaster Simon Williams addresses in this book. Using instructive and entertaining games in which one side wins quickly, he examines all the typical mistakes chess players make in the opening and early middlegame, how you should look to exploit them, and how to avoid falling into similar traps yourself.

    Catalog Code: SWB0316EM

    The King's Indian remains a hugely popular opening - unsurprising given the attacking opportunities it offers.

Black is hunting the enemy king and - in practical play - this gives him a psychological edge.

In this book, Gawain Jones confronts the challenge of meeting the Sicilian head on.
