Attacking Manual 2

Attacking Manual 2

Product type: Printed book

Jacob Aagaard

The second and final volume of the Attacking Manual explains attacking technique i.e. how best to conduct the attack once it has started. Abstract concepts such as Creative Play and Intuitive Sacrifices are combined with more basic ideas such as pins and overloading. These ideas and others are illustrated by extensively annnotated games, taken from recent international tournaments.

Chess, like other sciences, has undergone a dynamic revolution in recent years, but chess literature is still catching up with this revolution. The two volumes of Attacking Manual explain the rules of attack (the exploitation of a dynamic advantage), balanced between understandable examples, and deep analysis. Attacking methods are explained in terms of the new dynamic chess of the electronic age.

Five years in the making, this book deals with weak kings, sacrifices, various minor attacking themes, intuitive sacrifices, opposite castling, modern king hunts, and enduring initiative.

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.

Published 2010, softback, 461 pages.
