Greatest Ever Chess Tricks And Traps

Ref: p4577

Product type: Printed book

Gary Lane

There is no quicker way to win a game of chess than by being more tactically alert in the opening phase than your opponent. Tricks, traps and swindles lie in wait everywhere, especially so in the opening phase of the game, and many battles can be won or saved simply through learning and mastering the most important ones.

In this instructive and fun book, Gary Lane looks back though chess history and at modern times to create a list of his own favourite tricks and traps. Selecting from hundreds of contenders, Lane examines a variety of factors in order to decide which ideas are most worthy of inclusion. Each trap is rated for Surprise Value, Risk, Chances of Success and Reward.

The trappy ideas are separated into chapters on Open Games, Semi-open Games, Queen Pawn Openings and Flank Openings. A final chapter of Classic Attacks shows some opening traps in action in real play. Discover the stories behind the most cunning tricks and traps of all time; how you can utilize them to score easy wins; and how you can avoid being tricked yourself.
