Grandmaster and Hall of Fame chess legend Larry Evans draws upon his vast experience as 5-time USA champion, author of 25 books, and Bobby Fischer's second, to present a fun and challenging new approach for chess players. You can test your skills against one hundred fascinating positions from actual games and must choose the best move among three choices. Each correct answer earns the reader 25 points; no points are given for incorrect choices. At the end of the series, you can calculate their own rating, be it absolute beginner or even grandmaster! In the solutions section, Evans carefully explains the proper thinking a player must employ to approach the position and why both alternatives are inferior. You'll not only find their true chess level, but get a complete course in exactly where they can go wrong. 100 great chess challenges with insightful answers help players improve their game.
