En kjekk oppgavebok med 300 stillinger fra partier i 2010 og 11. Her gjelder det både kombinasjoner, sluttspill og andre viktige beslutninger. Boka er ekstra systematisk lagt opp med ulike kategorier, og løsningene grundig sjekket.

Nivået virker også mer bevisst enn i mange slike bøker, og oppgavene er ikke enkle, men gjennomgående heller ikke aldeles "håpløse". En flott og selvfølgelig underholdende treningsbok særlig for spillere på ratingnivå fra cirka 1300 til 2300, antar vi.

En innholdsrik bok som volummessig er praktisk ganske liten, kjekk ... og rimelig!

Forlagets egen omtale:

Solving tactical puzzles is one of the most effective ways to improve your chess. This convenient book provides 300 exercises, with instructive points highlighted in the solutions.

There is something here for everyone. The puzzles in the first two chapters are based on a clear-cut tactic or checkmate, such as those explained in Gambit's best-sellers How to Beat Your Dad at Chess and Chess Tactics for Kids. The endgame challenges highlight tactics and principles in action. In practice it is vital to defend resiliently and seek counterattacking chances - there is an innovative chapter on these rarely-covered themes as well as puzzles where the reader must decide how to punch home an attack.

Later chapters help readers develop a vital skill: the ability to make tough chessboard decisions. Attack, sacrifice, grab material, defend or simplify - it's for you to decide! Principles and guidelines are emphasized, together with common sources of error. The final section of puzzles will prove a stern challenge even for the best players, with the reader exposed to the full complexity of modern chess - with a few helpful hints along the way.

Gambit Publications has been publishing top-quality innovative chess books since 1998, winning numerous awards in several countries. FIDE Master Graham Burgess is Gambit's Editorial Director, and one of the founders of the company. He has written more than twenty books and holds the world record for marathon blitz chess playing. He lives in Minnesota.

"A great opportunity to refresh your grey matter with topical examples from current tournament practice" - Martin Rieger, Rochade Europa

"The Gambit Book of Instructive Chess Puzzles is different! The work does not seek unexpected and striking solutions - rather, it requires the reader to make decisions, much as in a real game" - Uwe Bekemann, Fernschachpost

"300 carefully selected puzzles for all standards" - British Chess Magazine

"There are several things a successful book on tactical puzzles should have. They include examples that are not well-known, material arranged not by theme but by degree of difficulty and perhaps most importantly solutions that are detailed enough to explain to the student why they went wrong. Burgess passes all these tests with flying colors. He is particularly strong in his comprehensive answers that are often several paragraphs long. This thoroughness insures that anyone that puts time into solving them will benefit whether they find the right answer or not." - IM John Donaldson
