CLEARANCE - The Chess Combination from Philidor to Karpov

Product Code: CB0207RB

Alternative Views:


The brilliant combinations which adorn the games of such great Masters of Chess as Morphy, Anderssen, Tal and Fischer present a miraculous facade to the chess enthusiast, with apparently inexplicable sacrifices leading inevitably to checkmate. In fact, gaining the ability to carry out decisive combinations at critical moments of the game often proves the major stumbling block in the path towards chess mastery. 

Raymond Keene has examined the advance of combinational ideas from the 15th century to present day. Not only has he drawn on his own extensive experience as a chess teacher and international player, he also has collected the most beautiful and intricate combinations from chess history, examining them deeply in order to isolate those specific themes and special factors which permit a successful sacrificial combination to be played. 

This volume will not only improve the playing strength of club and tournament players (for a study of the very best combinations will surely sharpen tactical skill), but also provide a source of aesthetic pleasure and excitement to the lover of the game of chess.
