This fascinating collection of 221 errors, misplays, oversights, and outright blunders shows the price that great players pay for violating basic chess principles and how to avoid these mistakes in your own game.

This fascinating collection of 221 typical errors committed by the world's greatest players challenges readers to test their skills by choosing between two moves: the right one, or the one actually played. Readers will be amazed at how even world champions make errors in critical situations and violate the basic principles of chess. From neglecting development and king safety, misjudging threats, and premature attacks to impulsiveness, snatching pawns, and basic inattention, chess players get a complete course in exactly what not to do.
