Dear Chess Friend,

Just in from our printers: the follow-up to Frank Erwich’s acclaimed and bestselling 1001 Chess Exercises for Club Players.

Experienced chess trainer Erwich teaches you how to reach the next level of:

  • identifying weak spots in the position of your opponent
  • recognizing patterns of combinations
  • visualizing tricks
  • and calculating effectively.

Erwich’s starting point is the reality of the advanced club player (Elo 1800-2300): it is not enough to spot simple combinations, at this level you must be able to resist your reflexes and look deeper.

In variations that look forcing you will always search for that deadly Zwischenzug. Quiet moves in general should be your new best friends. In short: an advanced club player should expect the unexpected.

One of the celebrated elements of Erwich’s previous book, which is neglected in other books on tactics, is back: DEFENCE! You will also learn how to defend against tactics, as well as how to use tactical weapons when you are under heavy pressure.

This is not just a collection of freewheeling puzzles, but a complete and structured course.
Please have a look at the sample pages of 1001 Chess Exercises for Advanced Club Players.

Kind regards,
Allard Hoogland
