565 chess puzzles with every type of tactical motiffs, from the more common back rank mates, pins, skewers, forks and the like up to and including some of the most beautiful and rare combinations.
This is the CD version of German grandmaster Karsten Mueller’s very popular ChessCafe Puzzle Book. Mueller combines clear discussions of tactical themes with well-chosen positions to test, challenge and teach. Although the classic combinations are not ignored, the great emphasis is on positions from modern tournament practice of the last decade.
It is in ChessBase format and is also offered in PGN. There are four ways to open and run this program: (1) With ChessBase Light (free download); (2) With ChessBase 9.0 (or lower); (3) With a ChessBase engine such as Fritz, Junior, Shredder, etc.; and (4) Using the PGN version.
From the Foreword by Women’s World Champion, International Grandmaster Susan Polgar: "This book offers every type of tactical motif imaginable, from the more common back rank mates, pins, skewers, forks and the like up to and including some of the most beautiful and rare combinations. This is a tactical book that will prove exceptionally useful for a wide range of players, intermediate through master strength and even beyond. I can heartily give this book two thumbs up. It will help you develop and improve your tactical skills tremendously."
