Description / How to Choose a Chess Move (New and Revised Edition)

International Grandmaster Andrew Soltis brings you a foolproof guide to choosing your best next chess move, every time.

There are more than 20 moves you can choose from an average position, yet Chess Masters regularly manage to select the best moves – and they do it faster, more confidently and with less calculation than other players.

This practical guide, in a fully revised and updated edition of a Batsford chess classic, explains the tricks, techniques and shortcuts Masters employ to find the best way forward, at every stage of a game. Drawing on the wisdom of some of the greatest chess players of all time, with analysis from over 180 games, it covers:

  • Employing specific cues to identify good moves.
  • Streamlining analysis of the consequences of moves.
  • Using both objective and highly subjective criteria to find the right move – from any position.

This invaluable book provides a fascinating insight into the way Chess Masters think, and is a must for all players who want to hone their decision-making skills and cultivate a killer chess instinct.

Andrew Soltis is an International Grandmaster, a chess correspondent for the New York Post and a highly popular chess writer. He is the author of many books including 500 Chess Questions AnsweredThe Chessmaster Checklist and How to Swindle in Chess – snatch victory from a losing position. He lives in New York.
