TACTICAL CHESS TRAINING
The Old Masters knew how to attack, and so the near-magical combinations of Anderssen and Morphy are legendary. But for today's Grandmaster the "brilliancy" has become stock-in-trade, simply another weapon in his chess arsenal. In fact, these modern tacticians produce masterpieces worthy of the Immortal Game each and every year. How is this possible? International Grandmaster Leonid Shamkovich and Jan Cartier sum up the answer in one word: Training.
Tactical Chess Training goes far beyond the old "solve this position" format. Instead, Grandmaster Shamkovich has carefully chosen 300 explosive and brilliant tactical sequences-all played since 1985! Each position is analytically dissected, as the Shamkovich/Cartier team breaks down the combination into its component parts. Learn to follow advanced tactical operations by grouping related ideas into categories like Clearance, X-ray, Attraction, Back Rank or Diversion. These vital themes are, of course, crossindexed to further aid study.
The authors teach that accurate combinational play is not wizardry, but a learned skill. Here they guide the student through a complete course in top-level tactics, showing how a knowledge of the standard themes can quickly orient a player in the most complex situation. With Tactical Chess Training you will learn to successfully utilize these patterns in your own games-it's your best roadmap an the highway to tactical mastery!
