Andrew Soltis

In chess, a swindle is a ruse by which a player in a losing position tricks his opponent, and thereby achieves a win or draw instead of the expected loss.

Though widely ignored in chess books, swindles play an enormously important role in over-the-board chess, and decide the fate of countless games.

Andrew Soltis, Grandmaster and American chess journalist, says swindles are not accidental or a matter of luck. Swindling means setting traps that exploit an opponent's over-confidence. It means choosing the move that has the greatest chance of winning, rather than the move that has the least chance of losing.

* A comprehensive guide to a much-neglected chess topic - using skill rather than luck to beat your opponent in the art of swindling.

* Renowned chess author Andrew Soltis presents a new take on an under-appreciated strategy in chess. Packed with tips, tricks and illustrated examples to guide you on your way to victory.

* This book is the perfect shortcut to success by setting strategic steps to exploit your opponent's over-confidence.
