Smart. Sensational. Stunning. For over a thousand years, checkmate has been the ultimate mental victory. Quite rightly, the emerging sport of chess boxing regards it as the only alternative to physical knockout. Winning feels good, but can a book ever deliver that crushing sensation? I think so. In 101 checkmate tactics, this book trains the reader to visualize, calculate and reflect. Each position is picked, unedited, from a real game between everyday club players. Each problem is followed on the next page by the solution. Why this chess book and not any other? This book is the result of an analysis of over 50 million amateur games. Over several months, a computer searched for every forced mate, before rejecting all but the most instructive for final publication.
