      How to Set Up And Executive Decisive Attacks
      Attacking the opponent's king is one of the most exhilarating aspects of chess, but also one of the most difficult to master. Everyone loves a good old-fashioned king hunt, especially when it leads to checkmate, but often the pressure is very much on the aggressor-one false move and the attack can often fizzle out into less than nothing, leaving the attacker with an empty shell of a position.

      This book attempts to satisfy two different goals. It presents a comprehensive history of computer chess along with many rare examples of the play of early programs. These examples contain both amazing strokes of brilliance and inexplicable catastrophes; they will give the reader a dear perspective of the pioneer days of computer chess. In contrast, contemporary programs are capable of defeating International Grandmasters; the text contains several recent examples including a remarkable victory over former World Champion Anatoly Karpov. The remainder of the book is devoted to an explanation of how the various parts of a chess program are designed and how they function.

    • Prepare to Attack
      There's no escaping the fact: if you want to win chess games, you have to attack at some point. Many players are happy solving combinations in winning positions, when the hard work is already done, but the key to a successful attack undoubtedly comes much earlier. No-one can attack effectively if they haven't prepared properly, and yet planning in chess can be a difficult technique to master, even for experienced players.
