Abstract:

This book is written to address an underemphasized area of chess training and study, the identification of and reaction to threats. For beginning and intermediate level players, the study of tactics is paramount. Almost every book on tactics takes the approach of providing a position where there is a forced win, checkmate, or draw. However Looking for Trouble - now in a revised and enlarged second edition - takes a different tack. It helps you to recognize threats by providing over 300 problems in which you focus on identifying and meeting threats in the opening, middlegame and endgame. The author's clear explanations are presented in a madder that should greatly benefit players of all levels.
