Description

This is the chess doctor's handbook to the very popular traps and pitfalls faced by beginning and intermediate chess players. Opening traps are the single most annoying stratagem, that is, for unprepared players. This book shows you how to handle these traps as both Black and White and to set the same traps yourself. Schiller and Watson provide practical remedies from both the White and Black perspectives to the annoying variations that opponents will often choose instead of the well-known main lines. For key openings, the authors provide two separate remedies to appeal to both the attacking and positional player. Unique charts and graphics make learning these remedies easy and fun 266 pages.
