It is not always possible to win a game of chess by obtaining an advantage and then logically converting it into a win. In the games of average players the result is often in doubt until the last blunder and the more resourceful player will usually triumph.
No game of chess is won by resigning and the "swindle" in an integral part of modern tournament play. How does one fight back from a bad position? What are the types of resource one should be looking for?
Is it better to defend passively or lash out and try to confuse the opponent? These questions are all dealt with in this entertaining and instructive book. Complete games are given throughout and this allows the reader to understand how the game has swung as a result of a series of errors.
