Chess is one of the oldest, most fascinating, and most complex games known to mankind. It’s a game of reason and logic, where you win by outthinking, out planning, and outsmarting your opponent. When you beat an opponent he can’t say he was unlucky.
We’ll take you on a move-by-move journey through two actual games and introduce key concepts like center control, pins, and double attacks. You’ll learn these ideas not by studying them in the abstract, but by seeing them in action. You’ll also see how you can use an advantage as small as a single pawn to finish off your opponent – a key idea that’s at the basis of winning strategy.
Everything you need to get started in chess is in this book. Put it into practice, and you’ll start out a winner from the beginning!
