Even among the best in the world, chess has become a more precise and unpredictable game. The Magnus Carlsen vs Maxime Vachier-Lagrave match in the Aimchess US Rapid tournament started with 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5 4.h4 c5 5.cxd5 Nxd5 – can you predict the next move of the world champion?
And here is a companion in two, published in 1896:
Grand Master Daniel King presents ten exemplary offensive performances. At key times, he stops and asks you to make a move. King then gives feedback on the most plausible sequels. It’s the best thing to do after having your own personal trainer!
Daniel King is the prolific author of the Power Play series which has 28 volumes to date. The Tactic Turbo for the King’s Gambit is the subject of his latest DVD.
Here is a teaser:
Daniel King presents 50 puzzle positions in video format, all from King’s Gambit. They feature typical tactics right on the open, so it’s a great way to get familiar with the tricks and traps you can set for your opponent.
