Imagine you're a world renowned chess champion defending your title in the grand master tournament. Your opponent has been playing very well, but now it's time to win the game. Are you up to the challenge? Here are 200 gripping puzzles in which you are shown a board from a chess game in progress and it's up to you to win it in a specified number of moves. You'll be called on to use all your skills-Pawn, Rook and Pawn, Queen, Queen and Pawn, Bishop and Pawn, and minor piece endings to capture the other side's King. Plus, since you'll need to see the points of view of both white and black, you'll hone your aggressive and defensive end-game abilities. By working on these puzzles, players with only an elementary understanding of the game and those who are more advanced will be able to improve their abilities as well as have a brain-teasing good time. And you never know, with fun practice like this, may be your dream of being a chess champion will be more than just fantasy after all! Printed Pages: 144.
