Description:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Checkmating the enemy king is the ultimate goal in chess. In this book Simon Williams helps readers to practice and improve their skills in this area of practical chess. A mating attack typically involves a build-up of forces, followed by an opening of lines, often involving a sacrifice. Once the enemy king is exposed, it is either checkmated, or only saved at a great cost in material. The puzzles in this book are pertinent to all these phases, and involve questions of where to attack and what pieces to use. Topics include: attacking the king caught in the center; central breakthrough; standard sacrifices against the castled king; chasing the king; endgame mates; and combinative themes.
