Most players prefer to attack rather than defend. But what is the correct way to do it? GM Dr Karsten Müller has compiled many rules and motifs to guide you, along with sharpening your intuition for the exceptions. Topics include: ”All pieces in the attack“; ”The attacker does not exchange attacking potential“; ”Opening of attacking routes“; ”Typical attacking motifs“ (such as the Greek-gift and the back rank mate) and ”Bishops of opposite colours favour the attacker“. Amongst other things, Müller uses games by the 8th World Champion Mikhail Tal to demonstrate how these attacks are mounted and concluded - high risk with big reward! Of course, attacks in the endgame are not neglected, and round off this fascinating production.

Finally, it’s your turn: the author has selected 20 typical attacking positions for youto solve. Show the author how to attack!
