Book Descriptionby Graham Burgess, 224 pp. This book contains a comprehensive collection of the shortest decisive games in chess history. It is an indispensable guide to the pitfalls and traps that lurk in every opening system. An ability to punish errors in the opening is an essential aspect of modern opening play. All too often players fail to seize their chances to win a crisp miniature game. The thousands of games featured in this book show how to detect the opponent's errors and take maximum advantage. The text includes an outstanding and comprehensive collection of games won in 13 moves or fewer, as well as explanations of the errors made and how to avoid them. This indispensable volume will help sharpen your killer instinct! FIDE Master Graham Burgess is a highly accomplished and versatile writer on chess, whose 'Mammoth Book of Chess' won the British Chess Federation Book of the Year Award in 1997. He holds the world record for marathon blitz chess-playing.
