This book begins with a practical step-by-step advanced tactical guide with comprehensive advice on attack, defence, planning ahead and the importance of sacrifice. There are detailed sections on the three key phases of the match - the opening, the middlegame and the endgame - and how to play each to best effect. Follow in the footsteps of grandmasters with immortal games broken down and analysed move-by-move. Advice is given on where to play competitive chess, both in clubs and touraments and against the computer. Different methods of game play are explored; expand your chess horizons with hectic and exciting rapidplay or blitz games, or embrace the importance of taking time over your moves with a slow and stimulating game of correspondence chess.
