The Art of Checkmate

Product Code: B0071RE

img

In the early 1950's, two former French champions authored a book that clearly - and quite comprehensively - explained the basic mating patterns in Chess. The Art of Checkmate by Georges Renaud and Victor Kahn was destined to be hailed as one of the most instructive Chess books ever written.

 

The basic elements of dozens of mating patterns are explored. Each is supported by simple, easy-to-understand examples, with additional exercises offered to help the student master this most important core concept - Checkmate.

 

In this new 21st-Century edition, the antiquated English-Descriptive Chess notation has been replaced by modern Algebraic notation. Otherwise, it has remained true to its roots. Find out why both instructors and students have for decades considered The Art of Checkmate as one of the most illuminating and helpful Chess books ever written.

  • Grandmaster Repertoire - The French Defence - Vol. 1
    The French Defence is one of the most popular and reliable responses to 1.e4. Black invites his opponent to gain space in the centre, with the intention of undermining the enemy position and launching a counterattack. Although the amount of theory has expanded in recent years, the French often leads to positions where positional and strategic understanding prove more relevant than long sequences of computer-generated moves. Grandmaster Repertoire 14 - The French Defence 1 introduces the Winawer Variation after the opening moves 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4, and provides expert recommendations against all of White's major possibilities
