Checkmating the enemy king is the ultimate goal in chess. In this book Simon Williams helps you to practice and improve your skills in the vital area of practical chess. A mating attack typically involves a build-up of forces, followed by an opening of lines, often involving a sacrifice. Once the enemy king is exposed, it is either checkmated, or only saved at a great cost of material. The puzzles in his book are pertinent to all these phases, and involve questions of where to attack and what pieces to use.

Topics include:
  • Attacking the king caught in the centre
  • Central breakthrough
  • Standard sacrifices against the castled king
  • The initiative
  • Attacking on opposite sides
  • Combinative themes
Full solutions are included

Simon Williams is young international master from England who has gained a reputation for playing daring attacking chess. He has represented England in World and European Championships in various age groups, and has been a regular in the British Championship since his early teens. This is his second book for Gambit.
