There are a number of methods of playing against an attacker, which include passive defense, simplification, blockade, stalemate, or a trap.

    The Tactician's Handbook
    Catalog Code: B0101RE

    In the late 1990s, five books, each dedicated to a unique tactical theme, and each with approximately 100 pages, were published by the late Russian correspondence master Victor Charushin.

To create this book, German grandmaster Karsten Müller has carefully reviewed and then selected the material he thought most enlightening. Then instructive exercises were added. All the analysis has been checked by the silicon monster, while Charushin’s notes and comments were revised where necessary.

    The Chess Tactics Detection Workbook
    Catalog Code: B0401EM

    This workbook offers a unique framework to study chess tactics independent of themes, difficulty and—most importantly—even the existence of an actual tactic in a given position. Analyzing carefully selected games, from beginner level through to club and tournament level, the reader assumes the role of a tactics detective, checking for mistakes and missed opportunities by both sides without the help of a chess engine. This training method resembles live play far more realistically than solving puzzles, because each move has to be analyzed with respect to tactical possibilities—whether they exist or not.
