Chess Tactics for the tournament player is the third volume in Grandmaster Lev Alburt's Comprehensive Chess Course series.
Endorsed by world champion Garry Kasparov as revealing "the once-secret Russian method of chess training", the first two volumes used only materials that worked well in former U.S.S.R. Five-time U.S. chess champion GM Larry Evans calls the current book "a highly instructive primer in tactics."
It contains hundreds strikingly beautiful positions arranged by difficulty and designed to sharpen tactical recognition and vision. Nothing is left to chance in this work. All materials have already shown their worth in Russian chess instruction.
This book contains 274 concisely explained, practical positions-carefully chosen and arranged to sharpen your tactical ability quickly.
You'll learn to recognize the patterns and follow-ups that lead to stunning knock-outs. Checkmate is, after all, the goal of chess.
