Kids love to win--and any kid who has begun (or wants to begin) learning and loving this timeless game will cherish this clever follow-up to Winning Chess Piece by Piece. These brilliant tactics and techniques will hone and develop young players' skills and give their brains a real workout...while they're having a great time. They'll learn all the chess master's tricks of the trade: how to calculate moves far in advance, with the help of examples from winning games; strategies used by world champions--including Gary Kasparov's "discovered check" and "skewer"; improving the pieces to get in the best position to strike; and end-game techniques. Along the way, quizzes help players chart their progress--plus you get a "certificate" for successfully completing the "course"! 128 pages, 285 b/w illus., 8 x 10.
