Skewers and pins! why should I need a book about that? anybody knows what we are talking about. True, but when was it the last time when you fell into a murderous skewer? last tournament maybe?It is not easy for beginners to learn how to play chess and improve their game. Instead of learning mainly through practice (which could take years) and the study of games of Masters (difficult to understand and easily forgotten), this book presents a survey of a single category of tactics concerning lined up pieces: pins and skewers.What you need to know before reading this book:* How to use algebraic Chess Notation* A visualization of at least 6 plies without a boardWhat you will learn in this book:* How to use pins* How to unpinWhat you will NOT get, and why:* Capablanca: nobody can learn to play well merely from the study of a book, it can only serve as a guide, and the rest must be done by the teacherIt is a common opinion that strong players see a position divided into elementary groups (chunks), each having exact and known characteristics, due to the huge number of games they played, analyzed and stored in their deep memory, immediately recognizing winning patternsThis book includes examples of pins and skewers from real games, and links to follow through the games and download the PGN, to let you then analyze them with your Chess Program.They are located on my web site , with English comments.

Appearance is simple and neat, diagrams start at the appropriate move.Better experience with Kindle Fire or PC. An Internet connection is needed, WiFi or other.You will not find here thousands of puzzles, many books are available for this, and many internet sites as well.Here you will be presented with the essential information to be able to recognize the pattern and the underlying technique.When out from the Metropolitan Museum, after a visit during the whole day, people just remember a couple of masterpieces that struck their imagination: what do you remember after going through hundreds of tactics?

here youll find a choice of the basic pins and skewers, to help recognize the most common. Essential information.According to Martin Weteschnik solving tactical puzzles without fully understanding the underlying mechanisms is not the most efficient way to learn. Do not exercise what you do not understand.Novice players are the target of this book, class C and below, up to 1500 USCF Elo rating.

I am trying to follow Weteschnik advice, by identifying patterns you should aim to, and understand them.Going periodically through these patterns will help you not to lose precious points and even to gain them, and your thinking time will be reduced. If only one of these patterns was unknown to you or you had doubts, your learning time will not be wasted.If you knew them all instead and never fell into them, great, do tournaments and enjoy Evelyne Nicods cat illustrationsEnjoy the readingRodolfo Pardi, FSI (Italian Chess Federation) instructor and arbiterNotice:Italian is my native language and I live in Italy.
