Superb defensive technique is a hallmark of all great chessplayers. With a few deft counterstrokes, they not only deflect what looked like an overwhelming offensive, but also expose the darker side of their opponent's build-up. Is this sheer black magic, or are these skills that ordinary players can develop?

While some of the key defensive skills follow well-established principles, modern players ally them with an appreciation of chess dynamics that is a good deal more subtle. Zenon Franco provides a wide-ranging course in how to handle difficult positions, seeking not only to hold them together but to go on the counteroffensive, exploiting to the full the commitments and concessions the opponent has made to launch his attack. The methods he advocates are varied: often a countersacrifice is the key, while simplification can also be employed as a subtler, but equally deadly weapon.

Chapters include:

  • Lasker, the Master of Defence and Counterattack
  • Refuting Premature Attacks
  • Fighting Blow by Blow
  • Regrouping
  • Prophylactic Thinking
  • Simplification
