Overview

Anastasia's checkmate obtained its name from the novel Anastasia und das Schachspiel (1803). In the novel, author Johann Jakob Wilhelm Heinse included the mate and hence its name. This e-book provides 30 examples of the mate, most in fully annotated games as well as an explanation of the criteria required for it to work. By learning these patterns well, you will be able to attack and defend effectively.

Like all Chess is Fun e-books, the profuse use of diagrams will permit you to read through the entire book without the use of a chess board and pieces. Unlike many other inexpensive chess e-books, these are fully annotated in understandable, simple language. The profuse use of diagrams make these among the first chess books that you can read WITHOUT A BOARD at your side.
