One of the most difficult situations in chess is seeing potential mates in the near future. All players, even GMs and champions, have missed such mates in actual play, to their chagrin and the bystanders delight, for all too often it is easier to play for momentary advantage than to force a mate.
This book by two former national chess champions of France provides a rational classification of mating situations, and shows how each possible type of mate has emerged with its variants in actual play. In an examination of 127 games, the authors identify 23 kinds of mate and show you the rationale for each. These include among others Legal's pseudo sacrifice, the double check, the smothered mate, Greco's mate, the Corridor mate, Anderssen's mate, Morphy's mate, mates with heavy and minor pieces, the mate of two bishops, of two knights, and many more. review quizzes with answers are included, so that tou can gauge your progress.
Since this book analyzes ideas rather than setting memorization taks, it will enable you to see basic patterns, give direction to your game from the earliest moves, help you to foresee forced mates and counter effectively, and most importent, improve your style of play so that you can force mate.
