How do chess players react in the line of fire? Are they able to remain calm in a storm? Defending against a threatening attack on their own king is one of the most difficult aspects to master in chess. Yet given the frequency of such offensives, it's certainly worthwhile investing a good amount of time on honing the ability to defend properly. In this valuable and entertaining book, Angus Dunnington arms readers with all the necessary skills to be able to cope with vicious assaults on their king. Using illustrative games, Dunnington investigates in depth defensive ideas such as blockading, giving up material, and the timely launch of counterattacks. Read this book and defend with confidence!
