Summary

Summary

Kids from 6 to 16--once you've worked your way through the author's Start Playing Chess, you're ready to focus on the secrets of winning. Just place this book beside your chess set, and watch your skills soar! Over 100 diagrams show how to manipulate the strengths of each piece, and defend against its weaknesses. You find winning strategies for any board situation: what to do when you're in closed position (when many of your pawns are stuck) or open position (when you're free to move and trade). Then try your hand at "double stuff"--how to do more than one thing at a time and confuse your opponent--as well as fun moves like a "family fork" and "skewer."
