While the brilliancy is a topic which has been well covered in Chess literature, its counterpart, the blunder, has been ignored all too often. In this original and entertaining look at the ever popular subject of the chess combination, the authors - an Atlantic Alliance of Canadian and Scot - seek to redress the balance. With a lively collection of episodes from a century of chess around the world, they document the great opportunities, both seized and overlooked, and give special consideration to the unwarranted resignation - a phenomenon with a ghoulish fascination for all players. Through hundreds of graded exercises, both beginner and master are offered a wealth of instruction and the opportunity to assess their own aptitudes for brilliancy - and blunder!
