    Book Description

    This is a book for chess players who love to play for checkmate from the very first move. It is for players who seek not merely a victory but the thrill of seeing the enemy king lie down in humiliating defeat. It is for the kind of player who reacts to the checkmate with a sly grin or by throwing his arms in the air and shouting "Who's da man?" (though this is considered very poor behavior and is not likely to earn you return match against the same opponent.) This book advocates an uncompromising opening system where White will be assured of a significant initiative for a considerable length of time, although he must part with a pawn in order to get it. Here you will find no encyclopedic treatment of variations or detailed repertoire notes. Instead, you'll find numerous brilliant sacrifices in the early stages of the game, many by amateur players facing superior opposition! Most of the games are presented all the way up to the checkmate move because this book is also intended as a manual of how to create a checkmate using a variety of opening and middlegame strategies.

    This book is intended for amateur players who are trying to improve their attacking skills.

      Book Description As noted British chess author T. D. Harding explains in the preface to Counter Gambits: Black to Play and Win, the aim of this book is to show you how to win games with Black. The method? Calculated aggression, right from move one! To offset the distinct advantage White is thought to have because it moves first, Black can engage in dynamic counterplay to avoid those openings that give White the opportunity of early exchanges. Following a brief explanation of symbols, this excellent guide covers such topics as dynamic counterplay, counter-gambits in open games, Black sacrifices in the half-open games, counters to the Queen's Gambit, Indian counter-gambits, and an index to openings and variations. Seventy-seven games, including ten new to this edition, are fully annotated, while more are found in the theoretical notes, with commentary. Among the counter-gambits used in the quest for dynamic counterplay are the Budapest, Blumenfeld, Falkbeer, and Latvian — all illustrated in great detail. A new update "Update 2001," written especially for this edition, examines developments in the field since this book was first published in the 1970s. Players at all skill levels — beginner to advanced — are sure to benefit from this expert analysis of gambits and counter-gambits.
