Editorial Review from Product Description
ADVANCED CHESS PROBLEMS covers 200 commonly encountered chess problems. Clear and concise instructions help the chess player to ensure that he/she does not get cornered early on in the game.
No expert knowledge of the game is necessary. These problems obey explicitly the rules of chess and, if you know the moves of the pieces, solving them will be well within your capabilities. That is not to say they are all easy to solve--they vary. The pleasure of problem chess lies not in the difficulty of solution, but in an appreciation of how White wins. There are no dull draws here, only exciting mate finishes.
The clarity and pertinence of this book make it a must-have for anyone who is interested in becoming an avid chess player, and a challenging companion for the more advanced player.
