Book 5 focuses on learning how to find the right continuation in critical positions of a chess game.
In the first four books of this series, the reader was introduced to all the most important, basic elements of chess tactics to win material or to checkmate. The first part of this book includes learning about special, more advanced themes such as “Zugzwang,” “Intermediate Moves,” and “Pawn Power.” Building on the knowledge acquired throughout this book series, in the second part of this volume, the reader can practice on familiar patterns. However, just as in the real game situation, there will be no hint which patterns to look for.
The goal is simple. Find a way to either checkmate or gain material. In most of the puzzles, you will need to think 2 to 4 pairs of moves ahead to find the correct solution.
