Manufacturer Description

Smart. Sensational. Stunning. For over a thousand years, checkmate has been the ultimate mental victory. Quite rightly, the emerging sport of chess boxing regards it as the only alternative to physical knockout. Winning feels good, but can a book ever deliver that crushing sensation?

I think so.

In 1001 checkmate problems, this book trains the reader to visualise, calculate and reflect. Each position is picked, unedited, from a REAL game between EVERYDAY club players, rated below Elo 2000. Each problem is followed on the next page by the solution.

This book contains the following problems in a random order:

  • Mate in 2: 345 problems
  • Mate in 3: 400 problems
  • Mate in 4: 256 problems

Why this chess book and not any other? This book is the result of an analysis of over 50 THOUSAND amateur games. I painstakingly searched for every forced mate, before rejecting all but the most elegant for final publication. In a clear testament to quality, this process took almost a year to complete.

This is a fast and effective improvement course for beginners and intermediate players. Read it, learn from it and rediscover winning!
