Description / The Art of Sacrifice in Chess


“Tactics,” said a famous chessmaster, “is 99% of chess.” It follows that the most effective way to increase your playing strength is to master the tactical aspect of chess. But there's a knack to playing sacrifices and combinations! A few of us are born with this knack, but most of us have to acquire it. There is no surer or easier or more enjoyable way to acquire this vital chess skill than by studying Rudolf Spielmann's authoritative work on “the art of sacrifice in chess.”

The basic idea expounded in Spielmann's classic is that you can win games by giving up material. The different types of sacrifices and combinations are classified and explained, so that you can recognize them and exploit them in your own games. In all cases, these sacrifices are attractively illustrated by some of the most beautiful games played by Spielmann in forty years of international and match competition with the world's greatest masters. In this book you will get the benefit of the great masters games and experience. Spielmann's ideas have stood the test of time and hardest kind of practice. His instructions are practical and pointed. Every chessplayer will relish Spielmann's masterpieces and find in them a source of inspiration for his own games.
