Book Overview

Combinations are the central element in chess; they make the game so magical and captivating. The beautiful point of sacrificing a queen, the strongest piece, in order to checkmate with a lowly pawn brings a smile of joy to all chess lovers. Virtually all chess games possess a combination, either one hidden in the shadows of analysis carefully avoided or one that provides a decisive blow. Winning Chess Combinations is a unique work that doesn't merely repeat the wonderfully rich and vast numbers of combinations, asking readers to solve a particular diagrammed position; it is a work that is far more realistic. A combination involves a sacrifice upsetting the balance of forces, but will it work or tragically boomerang? The reader is invited to solve this critical question by identifying the advantages that a specific position holds which might make the combination successful. Winning Chess Combinations is the seventh in Yasser Seirawan's highly acclaimed Winning Chess series - probably the best-selling series of chess books ever published. *A complete guide to chess combinations *Includes stunning sacrifices *Ideal for the improving player Yasser Seirawan is the highest-rated American chess professional on the World Chess Federation's rating ladder and the first American to vie for the World Championship title since Bobby Fischer.

Currently one of the worlds top-ranked chess players, he is one of only a handful of players to have defeated world champions Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov in tournament play.
