David Lemoir

Sample pages (pdf)

Why aren't you a top tactician? How does that "lucky hacker" at the club keep getting away with it? LeMoir shows that the key factors in becoming a deadly tactician are motivation (having the willingness to sacrifice and to consider tactical ideas during play), imagination (being aware of tactical concepts that lead to ideas which other players might miss) and calculation (being able to analyse and calculate effectively).

He gives examples from some of history's great tacticians, showing the risks they were prepared to take in the quest for beauty and, finally moves on to the mechanics of tactical play: what you should be looking for, how to prepare sacrifices and tactical ideas you should be familiar with. Each chapter has test positions for solving and the final chapter is a series of diagrammed tests.

This entertainingly written book is packed with practical examples to help elevate your game from the mundane to the sublime.

Published 2002, softback, 240 pages.
