Jacob Aagaard

Revised and Expanded 2nd Edition

Is it possible to develop chess intuition? Do rules for dynamic attacking play exist? Author Jacob Aagaard believes that it is possible to develop a flair for attacking play based on intuitive ideas which will be relevant to every game played. In volume one he introduces seven important attacking concepts such as momentum, colour schemes and weak points. Each chapter begins with a "diagram preview" to introduce the reader to some key positions from the forthcoming chapter. The relevant idea is then explained with lively text and diagrammed examples. Chapter 8 is a deep analysis of 12 of the author's favourite attacking games (these are games you probably haven't seen before) whilst chapter 9 contains 50 diagrammed test positions together with solutions. This is not a book for beginners, being aimed at ELO 1700-2500 (ECF 140-240) rated players, for whom a thorough study of the ideas and examples here will benefit their attacking play.

Jacob Aagaard is a leading author and has written several highly recommended coaching books. He became a Grandmaster and won the British Chess Championship in 2007.

2nd Edition published 2010, softback, 320 pages.
