International Master and former US Open Champion Timothy Taylor draws upon his wealth of personal experience to offer an instructive and entertaining account of how to improve your understanding of chess and your results. This book is awash with invaluable advice and helpful tips on all stages of the game - opening, middlegame and endgame.
True Combat Chess continues where Taylor's popular chess column, called True Combat, in January 2007 discontinued. The essence is that chess is a sport and that one should try anything to win, by all means, within the legal and moral boundaries.
Taylor emphasizes the practical aspects of chess: how to really make the most of your ability; how to win at all costs; and how to absorb the lessons of defeat to come back stronger.
Grab every advantage over your opponents and be in the best possible shape for battle. True Combat Chess will show you the way.
