Item Description...
Combinations are the central element in chess; they make the game so magical and captivating. The beautiful point of sacrificing a queen, the strongest piece, in order to checkmate with a lowly pawn brings a smile of joy to all chess lovers. Virtually all chess games possess a combination, either one hidden in the shadows of analysis carefully avoided or one that provides a decisive blow.

Winning Chess Combinations is a unique work that doesn't merely repeat the wonderfully rich and vast numbers of combinations, asking readers to solve a particular diagrammed position; it is a work that is far more realistic. A combination involves a sacrifice upsetting the balance of forces, but will it work or tragically boomerang? The reader is invited to solve this critical question by identifying the advantages that a specific position holds which might make the combination successful.

Winning Chess Combinations is the seventh in Yasser Seirawan's highly acclaimed Winning Chess series - PROBABLY THE BEST-SELLING SERIES OF CHESS BOOKS EVER PUBLISHED.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Best Chess Series ever written!  Mar 11, 2007
Wow; many chess players have voted this series by Yasser Seirawan as the best single series on Chess! You could spend many productive hours studying this entire series of books. The final book in the series is out this year. Seirawan's writing is designed for us "laymen" and this easy to understand book will improve your game.
Unexpected disappointment  Jan 11, 2007
After a series of informative, stimulating, and gratifying works on everything from openings to endgames, tactics to strategy, Seirawan blunders with this move. The text details a number of interesting games and examines the rationale and philosophy of play with each but the book provides a disappointing treatise on the topic of combinations, the ordained reason for the book's existence. The title and preface would lead the reader to expect an in-depth review of combinational ideas, examples of unique and inventive combinations, and the challenging puzzles and tests that have consistently garnished the author's prior works. This one, sadly, seems to be a hodgepodge of material thrown together as an afterthought in the endgame of what has otherwise been a brilliant match.
Part of a good series  Jul 7, 2006
The "Winning Chess Series" by Seirawan is one of the best series of books on chess. The "Winning Chess Combinations" book is more advanced than "Winning Chess Tactics" and "Winning Chess Traps for Juniors" so you should read these first and I personally liked them better. When you have advanced then getting this book is a good idea.
Yaz's new book is golden!  Jun 29, 2006
In his seventh, and final, book in his Winning Chess series GM Yasser Seirawan delivers one of his best in this very good series. In many ways this book is a follow up to his book on tactics, but taking it to a higher level. The focus is on pattern recognition and attacking ideas with many examples from recent GM games. I believe it works well as a bridge between his (or another basic) tactics book and a more advanced book like Vukovic's Art of Attack. I used his Tactics and Strategy books as the foundation for my chess study and am very pleased to add his new book to that list.
Yasser does it again!  Feb 20, 2006
Yasser Seirawan dazzles his Winning Chess readers for the seventh time by bringing us his latest and greatest work, Winning Chess Combinations. If you do not already own this book, rush out to the neareast bookstore, purchase it, and read it as you grasp all of the information necessary for mastering Combinations in this fantastic work.
