Book DescriptionA unique exploration of those pivotal moments in which chess games are won or lost - if you know how to spot them.

Packed with invaluable tips and tricks on identifying critical moments, illustrated with examples from 280 chess games.

This exciting and unique book deals with an aspect of chess that is hard to pin down: those monumental moments in a game when the tide turns and the course of the game is altered. It outlines the different types of critical moment, explaining how to spot them and, crucially, how to combat them, seize the initiative and turn the game to your own advantage. To back up the theory, the author has provided deep analysis of 280 chess positions from games by some of the greatest players in the world.
