Chess Traps

Pitfalls And Swindles

About The Book

From Simon & Schuster, Chess Traps is I.A. Horowitz's exploration of chess' pitfalls and swindes—both how to set them and how to avoid them.

This is a rich storehouse of Chess 'crimes.' Sometimes the villain is thwarted: more often he gets away with his nefarious deeds. But, in either event, the tales, and their telling, will prove to be instructive and vastly entertaining.
