Winning Chess Tactics Illustrated - download book
With this bit of preliminary shaping up, you are ready to tackle the 320 ensuing positions in WINNING CHESS TACTICS ILLUSTRATED. You will come across a host of tactical motifs: the pin, destroying the guard, mate on the back rank, under-promotion, deflecting the guard, smothered mate, double, discovered check. Queen sacrifices, etc.
One last word Few fringe variations are given. Thus the reader will not be deprived from exercising some original initiative. In many of the diagrams, solutions other than the ones given are possible. They are, however, not the shortest. And the prolongation of the game will create further opportunities for blunder.
