How To Beat Your Dad At Chess is not just a book for kids who want to beat their dads! It will help any young chess player against any opponent who beats them regularly!
This book teaches the 50 Deadly Checkmates--basic attacking patterns that occur repeatedly in games between players of all standards.
Each mating motif is carefully and simply explained, and several illustrative examples are given. A final test enables the reader to grade his pattern recognition abilities, and the last chapter explains what to do if your Dad is Garry Kasparov.
How To Beat Your Dad At Chess is fun, instructive--and guaranteed to improve your game. It is written by Grandmaster and well-known chess author Murry Chandler.
One of the best books to keep next to the toilet. I specializes in innovative and practical middle game mates against a castled king. Very handy since 90% of the people I play end up castling. Easy to follow and you can master one of the ideas in one sitting!
