Good defensive abilities earn players a great many halfpoints and fullpoints. The climax of the defense is the launch of a devastating counterattack, a skill at which all the great chess champions have been adept. Of particular interest to club players is Marin's discussion of how to defend against unsound attacks, and the problem of how to parry the attack while retaining winning chances. Other topics include attack and defense in equal positions, where both sides must judge carefully how much of their resources to devote to the attack and the counterattack. The main subject, though, is the case where the defender is fighting for his life, and must decide how to maximize his chances of survival. Marin considers psychological issues and explains the main options available to the defender: simplification, coldblooded defense, a positional sacrifice, 'blackmailing' the attacker, or a counterattack.
