Paata Gaprindashvili

Every game of chess contains one or more critical moments when a routine move is not enough and the balance of the game stands ready to be tipped in one side's favour - if the right move can be found! In this book correspondence chess master Paata Gaprindashvili identifies different types of critical moments, examines the reasons for their occurrence and explains the methods used by leading players at critical moments of the game.

The book begins with explanations of how to capture the initiative, create an attack and land the decisive blow by recognising the key moment as it arises. These ideas are illustrated using positions from Grandmaster games. Following this, the author challenges you to find the key move or plan in 269 critical positions. Solutions and explanations are provided at the end of the book.

This unique book deals with an aspect of chess that is often overlooked: those monumental moments when the tide turns and the course of the game is altered. Paata Gaprindashvili is an International Correspondence Chess Master.

Published 2010, softback, 271 pages.
