Viktor Vámos can be proud of his significant successes: he was three-time National Age Group Champion, finished 5th in the Junior European Championship and came in 10th in the Junior World Championship.
When he started playing chess as a beginner, a large part of his rapid development was owed to a thorough study of positions similar to those shown in this book. He is convinced that his work will allow beginners inexperienced in chess tactics to make enormous progress.
This volume is an essential aid both for children liking (and learning) chess, and for advanced grownup chess players.
