Book Description

Most players prefer to attack, resulting in defensive technique being the weakest part of their game. There are a number of methods of playing against an attacker, which include passive defense, simplification, blockade, stalemate, or a trap. Alternatively a player can defend actively or launch a counterattack. These and many other techniques are described in this thoroughly practical book. This is a beautifully written book that gives over a hundred examples of brilliant defenses by players in seemingly hopelessly lost positions. Here you learn that you should just keep looking and you may find a way to save your otherwise lost position. Using question and answer format, it asks what can the defending player do to save his position, and then gives the answers in the back of the book.
