Synopsis: Winning in chess is impossible without taking risks. Winning requires courage and psychology, but above all: calculation.
No matter how deep you calculate, you will always reach a point where you must come to an assessment, deal with uncertainties and take a decision.

When your main aim is to derail your opponent's calculation by weaving a web of deception, you engage in the highest form of risk: bluff.

Renowned chess coach Vladimir Tukmakov presents more than 100 practical ways that masters and grandmasters have used to push beyond the limits of calculation and take a deliberate risk. He shows how to trick your opponent into believing your bluff.

This is the first attempt to understand the nature of risk in chess. After studying this book you will think twice before wasting an opportunity to do what even the greatest players have done: bluff your way to victory.

Review: ""Probably the most recommendable middle game book of the year." (British Chess Magazine)

""Risk & Bluff' is fantastic! Vladimir Tukmakov has turned out to be an extraordinary chess writer. 'Profession Chessplayer' is top notch stuff and I really enjoyed his 'Modern Chess Preparation'. But 'Risk & Bluff' is perhaps the best of the three. I hope people appreciate it. Please make sure Mr. Tukmakov keeps writing!" (International Master Jeremy Silman, author of How to Reassess Your Chess)

"Tukmakov shows many examples where players don't wind by playing their best move, but by choosing a risky move. Why are players doing so? Tukmakov endeavors to explain this case by case." (Johan Hut Noord Hollands Dagblad)

"A fascinating study of two misunderstood themes in chess (..) it might inspire readers to add a bit of spice to their play." (John Hartmann Chess Life Magazine)

"Tukmakov's newest book deals with a topic seldom discussed in chess literature. He not only provides top-rate instructional material but also insights into the styles and preference of top-players (..) A book that should appeal to a wide range of players. Highly recommended." (John Donaldson, International master, International Master)

"Quite often games are decided by emotional choices, aren't they? Vladimir Tukmakov, former top player and now top trainer, explores that emotional factor with lots of examples." (Max Euwe Center, Amsterdam)

"An excellent book, great fun to read." (Grand Master Matthew Sadler, former British Champion)

"In general, Tukmakov's examples are excellent, from classic as well as modern games. The beauty is that there are lots of useful tips and suggestions, some of which I subconsciously was aware of, but never had seen explicitly expressed." (Grandmaster Robin Swinkels Schaaksite.nl)

"The emphasis is on practical play and when one should take risks. Even famous positional players have been known to roll the dice on occasion and win after tangling their opponent up in the resulting web of complications." (CHESS Magazine)

"One of the most entertaining books I have ever encountered (...) Tukmakov's book is packed with the most outrageous decisions and his engaging, chatty yet instructive writing style makes the whole thing a delight to read. A common theme can be seen in the extraordinary gantlets players run in terms of exposing their kings in the middle game." (Grandmaster Raymond Keene The Sunday Times)

"A welcome book for every chess player on every level." (Nederlands Dagblad)
