Superb defensive technique is a hallmark of all great chessplayers. With a few deft counterstrokes, they not only deflect what looked like an overwhelming offensive, but also expose the darker side of their opponent's buildup. Is this sheer black magic, or are these skills that ordinary players can develop? While some of the key defensive skills follow wellestablished principles, modern players ally this with an appreciation of chess dynamics that is a good deal more subtle. Zenon Franco provides a wideranging course in how to handle difficult positions, seeking not only to hold them together but to go on the counteroffensive, exploiting to the full the commitments and concessions the opponent has made to launch his attack. The methods he advocates are varied: often a countersacrifice is the key, while simplification can also employed as a subtler, but equally deadly weapon. Chapters include: Lasker, the Master of Defence and CounterAttack Refuting Premature Attacks Fighting Blow by Blow Regrouping Prophylactic Thinking Simplification. Softback, 40 pages.172 x 248 x 20.32mm 430.91g
