Oops! He’s Back!
Australian Grandmaster Ian Rogers is back with a new book of silly resignation puzzles - the only chess puzzle book where your solution cannot be worse than the player who mistakenly abandoned the game!
Pit your wits against legends from yesteryear to today, from Anderssen to Korchnoi to Gelfand, knowing that they resigned their games unnecessarily and you, perhaps, could have found a way out.
Oops! I Resigned One More Time! is the sequel to Oops! I Resigned Again!, which has gained a cult following since its release in 2021. Marvel again at 100 extraordinary positions and the stories behind them, in themed sets of five, with sneaking a peek at the answers made easy. 175 pages

Romain Edouard, auteur de qualité et joueur de haut niveau, nous propose un ouvrage sur le calcul aux échecs, lorsqu'il s'agit de mettre votre adversaire échec et mat.
Au menu, 8 chapitres; dans les trois premiers, des exercices tactiques standards, avant que les choses se compliquent. Au quatrième, il vous faudra enfermer le roi adverse, au cinquième, votre tâche sera de l'emporter en éliminant le défenseur clé, dans le sixième, c'est une double menace qui fera la différence, dans le huitième, des sacrifices et enfin dans le huit et dernier chapitre on retrouvera quelques problèmes différents, un peu de tout. Il est conseillé d'utiliser le livre dans l'ordre chronologique, car la complexité des exercices s'accroît au fil de l'ouvrage. Au total 276 exercices. 130 pages.
