Only one book left in stock! Steve Giddins has chosen 50 supremely instructive games some old, some new, and including many that few readers will have seen before. He has annotated these games in detail from a modern perspective, explaining the useful lessons that can be learnt from them, while avoiding the harmful dogma that characterized many older works of this type. Topics include: Attacking the King, Defence, Piece Power, and Endgame Themes. Each game is followed by a recap of the main lessons to be learned. Giddins writes in a highly accessible downtoearth style that appeals to club players seeking to improve their understanding of practical chess. His knowledge of Russianlanguage chess literature has enabled him to find many excellent examples that have not appeared in previous western literature. Softback 160 pages.
