Players learn the fun and easy way to mate opponents and win chess games.

The goal of chess is to checkmate the opponent's king, but to be achieve this, the player must know the basic combinations necessary to win. Easy to read and right to the point, this new retitled edition of Master Checkmate Strategy shows players how to finish opponents with decisive checkmates. Players learn all the essential mates needed to be a winning player including the scholar’s mate, mate with two bishops, the corridor mate, the smothered mate, five patterns of diagonal mates, king hunts, and the key strategies needed to set up future mates. Each mating concept is fully explained in easy-to-understand language with examples, game situations, insightful commentary and more than 120 diagrams so readers understand the thinking and game plan behind every move and strategy. Robertie also shows advanced, surprising and unconventional mates, the most effective pieces needed to win, how to work two rooks into an unstoppable attack, wield a queen advantage with deadly intent, and even how to mate opponents with just a single pawn advantage.
