Summary and Info
A lurch into the pits of anxiety-losing in less than 20 moves. Probably the most important part of a chess game for the amateur chess player is the opening. At the amateur level, most games are won or lost in the opening through mistakes or falling in a book trap. It is important to study the openings and know what traps and pitfalls may arise from a particular variation, either to spring it on an opponent or avoid a trap that your opponent is trying to spring on you. This book illustrates short games to take advantage of poor opening strategy.
