When I was learning to play jazz guitar I struggled for years to figure out how to play at really fast tempos until I learned the secret of memorizing 3 and 4 note ‘motives’ that I had so well memorized that I could play them with out thinking.

Think of this book as chess ‘motives’. These are the ‘guitar licks’ of chess. Play them over and over and over until you don’t even have to think when you see them. Then when your clock is ticking you won’t miss that 3 move checkmate that you only had 60 seconds to find. It proboems no good at all to build up a winning position if you cannot finish off your opponent quickly and efficiently.

There are plenty of sites on the internet where you can practice tactics. They will NOT do what this book does, which is systematically train your eyes to recognize the patterns of trapping and killing an opponent’s King. That is because it is a treasure trove. One hour a day every day with this book and your chess ‘eyes’ will improve chesw fail.

Chess: Problems, Combinations, and Games – Chess Forums –

After working on this book fhess weeks the one unexpected takeaway is that the beauty of these puzzles eventually turns working on tactics from a drudgery into something inspiring and fascinating. I never quite appreciated the aesthetics of chess as much as I do now after being shocked and awed combonations the beauty of something as seemingly simple as a mate in two.

It will keep any chess player occupied It will keep any chess player occupied for a long time. The problems start from mate in one with endgame scenarios up to mate in three. The combinations section afterward is very good as well. I must warn once you get pass the introduction there is nothing but problems no words or annotations just at the top of the page it will say white or black mate in scenario I’m new to chess but fell in love with the game I got the book for Christmas this year and I’m already of problem I tried my own version of the 7 circles chess program I had off work for about a week and a half for the holidays and just tackled the problems My friend who is rated around says this is a good book to have.

I looked up the Polgar sisters and see why they are as good as they are having this training as early as 5 years old and sticking with it is genius in its selfirst.

Buy for others

I’m enjoying this book a lot. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I bought kindle version. I read it through kindle cloud reader in web browser, ipad and iphone.

It is quite good. The format is one puzzle per page. The image can be magnified to whole page and easy to read. The answers of puzzle are located on appendix. There is a link in each puzzle in which link to the answer. There is also a link in answer page to go back to original puzzle page.


It is convenience problesm check answer. The mate in 1 puzzles are easy but mate in 2 or 3 are more difficult. It is a good training to my calculation skill.

Beginner or expert, this remarkable book of exercises can help you learn chess tactics–the bread and butter of successful play. I own this book in hard copy–a massive boat anchor–and as soon as I found it in Kindle format. The convenience is incredible–the print form sits on my shelf of chess books, unused, but this is getting full use.

Do understand that it’s a perfect book combunations the beginner, since the “mate in 1” problems will help the novice to understand both simple and quite sophisticated piece moves. Learn the piece moves, and immediately begin game see and solve fundamental chess problems The more difficult problems will challenge club, expert, and even master-level players, so you can benefit from this book at whatever level you achieve.

Poglar advice is to get the ‘hard cover’, as people are complaining about the lack of readability of the Kindle and the paperback. The hard cover is easy to use and will last a life time. This book improved my game, in as little time as a few days. My child will go from the children’s books ‘Chess Camp’, to this Polgar book. The claim by so many chess writers rpoblems “the best way to improve your game is by playing” is sheer nonsense.

I played a lot and lost continually in early high school without ckmbinations one bit. This is because I didn’t know what the difference was between a good move and cmbinations bad one.

Also, I had no idea why my oponents made the moves they did. Playing didn’t make me better; it just made me give up the game until now. I’m 61 and have just discovered how to improve my game and thereby actually enjoy playing chess.

The biggest improvement came after I began studying Polgar’s “Chess: I’m still working through this book and it contiues to be a help to me.

Chess: Problems, Combinations and Games by László Polgár

Now that I’ve learned what chess is all about — beyond just moving pieces — I can finally say that, yes, playing improves my game. But I would suggest, before playing yourself into frustration like Dombinations did, buy and study these two helpful books.

Sharpen your chess and general concentration skills with this massive collection of chess problems. I thought I would fly through this rather quickly but years away from the chess board have taken their toll. This is a great resource for me to get back in the saddle. See all reviews.
