Catalogue text:

Intuition is central to all chess decision-making, and an understanding of its role is vital in improving one's game. Players who try to calculate everything to a finish often lose themselves in a maze of variations, while those who use intuition to the full will save both time and energy for the key moments of the game.

This book, the first devoted to the role of intuition in chess, explains how to allow your intuition to reach its full potential and provides guidance on distinguishing between positions in which one should rely heavily on intuition and those where one ought to be more analytical.

The two authors, both top-level authors and players, have drawn examples from modern practice and from the classics, with especial emphasis on players whose intuition have been legendary, such as Mikhail Tal. The authors devote particular attention to the role of intuition in sacrifices, whether for attacking, defensive or positional purposes.
