Timothy Taylor
In this entertainingly written book Timothy Taylor carries out an in-depth study of the subject of pawn sacrifices in the middlegame by examining 67 attacking games where one player has spotted "favourable omens" and speculatively sacrificed a pawn for an attack. The 13 chapters each deal with different types of pawn sacrifice - e.g. for a king attack, line opening, obstruction etc. - and Taylor highlights the many reasons for their success, indicating the ideal situations in which pawn sacrifices work, as well as showing positions in which they are not so effective. His use of risk assessment, favourable omens and the opinions of "Mr Fritz" add both entertainment and instruction. If you believe that fortune favours the brave and you would rather risk a pawn or two for an attack than try to grind your opponent down in an endgame, then this could be the book for you.
International Master Timothy Taylor is an experienced tournament player who has enjoyed several notable successes, including winning the US Open. He is also a renowned chess writer; one of his previous books, How to Defeat the Smith-Morra Gambit, became a US Chess Federation bestseller while his book Bird’s Opening provoked much positive interest.
Published 2008, softback, 239 pages.
