Chernev, Irving and Reinfeld, Fred  
Winning Chess
 Picture
Publisher: Simon and Schuster, 1948 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Every chessplayer, from beginner to expert, asks the same question: 'How can I improve my game?' In our earnest endeavor to find the best possible answer, we have studied over f50, 000 games played in tournaments from 1851 to the present day by the greatest chess masters. This intensive research confirmed what we had long suspected: the proper use of combination play is the secret of winning chess. Tactical methods may lead directly to checkmate. In the vast majority of cases, however, combination play is used as a means of winning material - a piece or a Pawn. In a game between players of equal strength, the advantage of a piece (where no freak factors are present) is enough to force immediate resignation; the chances of saving the game with such inferior forces are infinitesimal. The advantage of a Pawn is also conclusive, although, to be sure, it allows a far more stubborn resistance. For clarity's sake, all the position sin this book where gain of material is the goal, are so clean-cut that the opponent has no compensation for the lost material. Combinations can be broken down into simple, basic, easily recognizable elements, for example the pin, the Knight fork, the double attack, the discovered check, the double check. Each of these devices has certain distinguishing characteristics, repetitive patters which announce its presence on the chessboard.." Xviii + 231 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dusts jacket.
