Description

Could I have played a different move instead? What an unproductive question! No one plays perfect chess, even the World Champion! We all make mistakes that can put us in a bind. The players who recover and triumph, despite adversity, are looking for the last mistake, one made by their opponents. This book teaches essential strategies for defending, drawing, and even winning when your back is against the wall. Featuring positions found no where else, you will explore what gumption looks like on the chessboard. What shred of promise can we pull from our losing (but not lost!) position? If there are ways to seize a better result, why give up?
