    Have there been times during a game when you have tried to calculate like mad, but can find no rhyme or reason to your lines? Have you ever felt that the computer's suggestions in your post-mortem analysis make no sense to you? Ever felt like the man with a hammer, suspecting that the world may not be made up entirely of nails after all?

    In Positional Play Jacob Aagaard shares his simple three-step tool of positional analysis that he has used with club players and famous grandmasters to improve their positional decision-making. Working from the starting point that all players who aspire to play at international level have a certain amount of positional understanding, Aagaard lays out an easy-to-follow training plan that will improve everyone's intuition and positional decision-making.

    From the foreword by Arthur Yusupov: "The tools that Aagaard uses in this book look simple. But his method of three questions and rather modest approach shouldn't deceive readers - if you follow the instructions carefully and concentrate on these important questions , you will most likely focus on the central elements of the position, which will help you to find the solutions of the exercises. Working with this book will train your decision-making process and learn some new practical skills. And maybe you will be able to make another step forwards (..)"

      How to Set Up And Executive Decisive Attacks
      Attacking the opponent's king is one of the most exhilarating aspects of chess, but also one of the most difficult to master. Everyone loves a good old-fashioned king hunt, especially when it leads to checkmate, but often the pressure is very much on the aggressor-one false move and the attack can often fizzle out into less than nothing, leaving the attacker with an empty shell of a position.
