If you want to improve in chess you usually have to settle for instructional material based on games played long ago by old masters with who you have no affinity at all. Or contrived puzzles that have little in common with the reality of your own games.

Italian FIDE Master and chess instructor Franco Zaninotto has a different approach. He knows from experience how stimulating it is to study the games of the best players in your peer group. Zaninotto teaches elementary strategy and tactics by using games he has selected from recent Junior Championships all over the world. He shows that you don’t need to have decades of experience in order to play clever moves.

Super Chess Kids tells you all you need to know about recognizing and exploiting weaknesses in your opponent’s position, about evaluating your position and developing a plan, and about calculating moves of attack and defence. You will also see typical errors that even the best young players tend to make. Included are more than 100 strategic and tactical exercises. There is little excuse for not finding the winning moves: after all, other kids already did!
