How to Swindle in Chess (Batsford Chess)
In chess, a swindle is a ruse by which a player in a losing position sets traps to exploit an opponent's over-confidence, and thereby achieves a win or draw instead of the expected loss. Written by the hugely popular chess writer, Andrew Soltis, How to Swindle in Chess tells you how to make your own luck in chess; how to choose the move that has the greatest chance of winning rather than the least chance of losing. Though widely ignored by all chess books, swindling plays an integral role in deciding the fate of numerous games, and this invaluable book will help you improve your own game.
