"If a sacrifice looks good, then it is good". Sounds unfamiliar? Sounds blasphemous? It is from Blitz Theory, a book we just received in stock. It reminded me of what Genrikh Chepukaitis, the famous SmartChip blitz legend from Genna Sosonko's marvelous book, used to say: "Confusion is adequate compensation for a sacrified piece". Blitz Theory is a naughty little book, written by Jonathan Maxwell, full of extremely interesting stuff, but only for those who really want to win at blitz.

In his Endorsement of this book GM Walter Browne specifically excludes Maxwell's "Pseudo Check", a very nasty and unfair beast indeed! Please have a look here, if you dare.
