This great learning tool and fun book challenges you to solve the puzzles and find the checkmate in 200 unique situations. You’ll be using capture mates – a chess term for taking an opponent’s piece and winning at the same time – to accomplish each of these victories. The first 100 of these puzzles are ne-move mates. Find the right move, checkmate the king and you win! The second 100 puzzles are more challenging. These are two-move mates. You make a move that captures a piece or a pawn, your opponent makes a forced reply, and then you swoop in for the coup de grace. Learn to use every piece to find the mates; and to keep the puzzles interesting, the authors have tossed in a few tricky mates as well! With 200 easy-to-use large diagrams. 160p.
