Chess Tactics for Advanced PlayersWe have just received: Chess Tactics for Advanced Players In this superb book on tactics, which was originally published in 1984, the well-known Russian grandmaster and author Yuri Averbakh expounds his approach on studying this crucial aspect of the game.

In the first part of this book, Averbakh demonstrates the importance of the double attack. With instructive examples he proves that double attacks in the broadest sense are the basis of most tactical operations.

By finding an answer to the question of what lies hidden behind the mysterious concept of harmony of pieces in the second part of this book, he reduces the bulk of the combinations to a handful of basic elements. From this Averbakh derives a convincing definition of the term 'combination' and introduces a new, promising system of classifying different combinations. Both very instructive and easy to understand.

You will get to know how tactics really work!
