    Book Description

    Chess Camp is a new training system for beginning chessplayers, and for the parents and coaches who teach them. Starting with simple problems to illustrate key concepts, and then progressing to more complex positions, the student will learn by doing, methodically integrating new information with previous knowledge while building effective thinking habits at the board.

    The seventh volume in this series, Opening Tactics, sets problems in more lifelike conditions, as they arise from standard openings and the winning tactical idea is not given away. Thus, the student will: 1) enhance his or her ability to think independently in real positions; 2) start to absorb typical themes from the chess openings; and 3) learn the need to take the opponent's threats into account.
