Karthik Murugan guides readers through 30 powerful chess tactics in his new book

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For those new to chess and also looking to improve and master key tactics to win games, “Legal Attack: Chess - An Intellectual Board War” (published by Archway Publishing) by Karthik Murugan teaches powerful tactics along with puzzles, mates, traps and important strategies to help improve people’s intellectual ability to master chess.

According to the author, most beginners and moderate chess players do not know where to start. This book contains 300 puzzles categorized under 30 powerful tactics. After studying several chess books, the author couldn’t find a single book with comprehensive lessons and puzzles, so he felt compelled to write “Legal Attack.” He also believes that practicing these puzzles will help people recognize standard patterns to improve and win games. Every step of the way Murugan guides the readers and attempts to make them winners. The author believes that once readers start, the book will bring out the intrinsic curiosity of the player to keep doing more.

“Learn each tactics and solve each puzzle,” Murugan advises. He adds, saying “This book will bring the true potential out of you. As you learn, solve puzzles, and play games online to apply what you learnt.”
