Description
Checkmating the enemy king is the ultimate goal in chess. In this book Simon Williams helps readers to practice and improve their skills in this 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 in material. The puzzles in this 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; Chasing the king; Endgame mates; Combinative themes.

Simon Williams is a 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; he also wrote Play the Classical Dutch.
