A review of 1001 Brilliant Ways to Checkmate by Fred Reinfeld and Bruce Alberston

These two books are companion volumes and together cover a full range of tactical chess issues. In Sacrifices and Combinations, the goal is to gain advantage and push toward victory, not necessarily to checkmate the King.


In Checkmate, the diagrams are positions in which checkmate can be attained in a few moves. Each chapter features a few comments from Reinfeld about what to look for and the significance of each tactic. In introducing the book, Reinfeld wrote: The second step is to study a great many examples of these tactical themes.

So, the object of this book is to add to your knowledge, to make you a strong chessplayer, and last but not least to delight you with some of the most beautiful moves ever played on the chessboard.

Again, Reinfeld introduces each chapter with perceptive comments.

Editor Alberston attests that these books especially Checkmate notably helped his game, a testimony that can be echoed by many others. Now future generations of players will continue to benefit from this brilliant writer. The third book in this trio is an enlarged, second edition of a book by National Master Dan Heisman. The book is organized around meeting Threats, checkmage three sections: Opening, Middlegame, and Endgame Threats.

In his Introduction, Heisman provides practical advice about meeting threats: Five possible ways to meet a strong tactical threat: Capture, Move, Defend, Block, and Cbeckmate p. The reader is to move through the Problems, identifying the Brillkant and Prevention. In describing the Threats and their Prevention, Heisman has written clearly and concisely. His positive Preventions are full enough discussions to give readers plain directions on what to anticipate and ways to respond.


These three reissued books are splendid resources to take players through tactical exercises that can certainly enhance their skills.

These books put us under the tutelage of two splendid chess instructors. They are fine contributions to helping all players improve their chess talents.
