      Beat the Grandmasters
      Can you Rise to the Challenge?
      Catalog Code: B0120GB

      This book pits readers against the grandmasters by placing them in real-game situations where there is a way to defeat a well-known player. Your task is to find the moves which lead to the defeat of some of the strongest players in the world. Quite often one move can change the course of the game, and calculating with precision at the right moment can mean the difference between winning and losing. Even if you have had a lost position for a long time, you may suddenly get the chance to turn things around if your opponent drops his guard for a moment.
