Readers test their skills against 100 fascinating positions from actual games and must choose the best move from among three choices. Each correct answer earns the reader 25 points; no points are given for incorrect choices. At the end of the series players can calculate their own rating, be it absolute beginner or even grandmaster!
In the solutions section, Evans carefully explains why both alternatives are inferior and the proper thinking a player must employ to approach the position. From neglecting development, king safety, and misjudging threats, to impulsiveness, snatching pawns, and basic inattention, readers not only find their true chess level, but get a complete course in exactly where they can go wrong.
