Even an average chess player can find the same moves as a Grandmaster as much as 75 percent of the time—but only the Grandmaster can find that other 25 percent. Packed with tips, tricks, and practical exercises, this book identifies the kinds of moves and techniques that account for that difference. It covers such topics as: Mysterious rook pawn moves, Tacking, Piece Nullification, “King Feeling,” and much more. Written by one of our best-loved chess authors in his trademark chatty, accessible but always informative style, What It Takes to Become a Grandmaster will reveal the secrets of how to join chess's elite ranks.
