    100% new and 100% factory seal. How to Play Chess: Lessons from an International Master From the basics of the game to advanced strategy and tactics, and everything in between, How to Play Chess: Lessons from an International Master is any chess enthusiast's opportunity to enhance your understanding of the game. Taught by International Master and renowned chess teacher Jeremy Silman, these 24 engaging lessons walk you through every aspect of the game. After grounding you in the rules of chess, Mr. Silman offers strategic insight into openings and endgames, shows you typical pitfalls to avoid, and examines an array of famous gambits, positions, defenses, mates, and more. One of the most rewarding aspects of chess is that amateurs and professionals alike can unlock new secrets, discover fresh patterns, and sharpen their skills as players. Amateurs may wonder: •Where do I even begin? •How do all the pieces move? •Which pieces are more valuable? •What are the key "rookie mistakes" to avoid? The rules are simple to learn, but the game is vastly complex. Therefore, even seasoned players with many years of experience always have more to learn. For instance: •When does the en passant rule apply? •How do I make more effective combinations? •How does pawn structure point toward the best next move? •Is it possible to secure a checkmate with just a king and a pawn? Whether you're a chess novice or a long-time player, this course will help you see the game in a whole new way. Striking visual examples from some of the most famous-and infamous-matches in history offer a wealth of strategic insight. You'll also explore the game's history and meet some noted and flamboyant players, from André Philidor to Bobby Fischer to Garry Kasparov. How to Play Chess: Lessons from an International Master is your guide to becoming a formidable chess opponent.
