Descripción

A Modern Guide to Checkmating Patterns Giving mate is the ultimate goal of every chess player. Finding that all-decisive combination is immensely satisfying. But how are you supposed to spot a checkmate when you are sitting at the board with the clock ticking?

In this guide International Master Vladimir Barsky teaches the method created by his mentor Viktor Khenkin (1923-2010). It’s based on an ingenious classification of the most frequently occurring mating schemes. A wide range of chess players will find it an extremely useful tool to recognize mating patterns and calculate the often narrow path to the kill.

A Modern Guide to Checkmating Patterns

All the 1,000 examples (850 of them in exercise format) that Barsky presents are from games played in 21st century. He has carefully selected the most instructive combinations and lucidly explains the typical techniques to corner your opponent’s king. More often than you would expect, positions that look innocent at first sight, turn out to contain a mating pattern.

Vladimir Barsky

This is not just another book full of chess puzzles. It’s a brilliantly organized course that has proven to be effective. Finding mate isn’t rocket science, but you need to know what to look for. Vladimir Barsky teaches you exactly that.

 

Vladimir Barsky (1969) is an International Master, an experienced chess coach and a well-known journalist and author. He lives in Moscow.

 

“Essential reading for every chess player that aspires to improve. A really important book, set out very clearly, extremely well organized. These mating patterns are just vital, you need to be able to spot them quickly.”

“Vladimir Barsky explores 1000 positions. He does that instructively by starting at the basis, the bare model, and then adding more pieces. The structure is: an introduction explaining the pattern, some practical examples and then lots of exercises. An instructive book.”

Praise for The Ragozin Complex by Vladimir Barsky:

«A wonderful guide.»  Peter Doggers, ChessVibes

«A delightful freshness keeps the reader in thrall.» Martin Rieger, Rochade Europa Magazine
