Bogen er udgivet i en robust hardback udgave.

Alle voksne skakspillere ved at skakspillet først begynder at blive sjovt når vi lærer at undgå at falde i modstanderens billige taktiske trick. Plus lærer at udsætte modstanderen for samme taktiske motiver:-)
Det handler denne bog om.

Gør derfor alle skakspillende børn og unge en tjeneste ved at lære dem at spotte disse taktiske faldgruber i åbningsspillet, så længe deres hjerner - modsat os gamle - er åben for indlæring. 

Nu får du hjælp af en erfaren skakspiller og forfatter, der har lavet en meget velskrevet bog bygget op omkring 100 nøgletemaer/øvelser. Det lyder af meget, men så kan man bare beslutte at tage 3-4 temaer om ugen.  

Dette er - som titlen antyder - en samling af øvelser. Men meget mere end det.
Bogen kan faktisk kaldes en mini kursus i at spille åbningsspil bedre, hvor du får partitrækkene der leder frem til den afgørende fordel. Jeg kan i den forbindelse godt lide at forfatteren ikke spilder plads på at bringe spillernes navne, turneringer mm. Det er irrelevant for sådan en bog.

Bogen indeholder også et testafsnit til sidst.

Bogen er sat meget læsevenlig op hvad angår tekst og diagrammer.

Min vurdering af målgruppen:
Udviklet til børn og unge. Men ikke helt begyndere. Jeg vil nok mene at børn skal have spillet regelmæssigt i et års tid (med forældre, bedsteforældre, skoleskak eller andet) for at få glæde af bogen.

Bogen er tillige et must for klubspilleren i niveauet 1100-1800, der gerne vil undgå flere unødvendige katastrofale tab i åbningen!

Om forfatteren:
Forfatteren Graham Burgess har skrevet cirka 25 skakbøger, lige fra generelle træningsbøger til åbninger om specifikke åbninger. Plus at han som redaktør på Gambit har redigeret mere end 250 skakbøger. I 1997 vandt hans "The Mammoth Book of Chess" British Chess Federations "Book of the Year Award". 

Som skakspiller er han FIDE Master og tidligere "Fyns Mester"! (da han en periode var bosat i Danmark). Burgess holder stadig en respektabel rating på 2265. Jeg husker Burgess som meget turneringsaktiv, og tabte for mange år siden et smerteligt parti med hvid imod ham (jeg har ikke længere partiet). Uvidende om at han lige havde skrevet en ny bog om Aljechin´s forsvar spillede jeg den mest agressive variant med 5.f4..... 

I 1994 satte han en verdensrekord for "marathon lyn" ved at spille 510 lynpartier i træk. 

Burgess er tillige skaktræner.

Anmeldelser:

“The layout and printing is clear (as you would expect with Gambit) with numerous diagrams at key moments. An excellent book with much original material presented in a clear and friendly way” – John Upham, British Chess News

“A highly instructive openings course, based on 100 carefully selected openings traps. As an example in trap 24 we see the Serbian Trap that runs with the move order: 1.e4 c5 2.d4 cxd4 3.c3 dxc3 4.Nxc3 Nc6 5.Nf3 e6 6.Bc4 Qc7 7.0-0 Nf6 8.Qe2?! Ng4! 9.h3?? Nd4! and wins!! There is also a collection of 48 diagrams to test your newly-learned opening skills. Conclusion: This book is overloaded with exploding positions!” – John Elburgchessbooks.nl

“The author, Graham Burgess, has a nice, accessible style of writing. ... I was completely overwhelmed by the most incredible titles, such as A Violent Unpin, A Piece Trapped in Noah’s Ark, Rampant Pawns and the Long Diagonal, A Mousetrap for Rooks, A Horrible Discovery and Sizzling Long-Diagonal Skewer. ... I quickly jumped to ‘Trap 18’ because the title A Piece Trapped in Noah’s Ark intrigued me immensely. The subtitle is perhaps even more beautiful and mysterious: A bishop drowned under a sturdy wall of pawns. ... there is no doubt that we have a book here that can be fun for youth players and above all has a pleasant training angle. ... a nice collection of tactical ideas that can lead to rapid success. As far as I am concerned it is essential.” – IM Herman Grootenschaaksite.nl

“Would benefit chessplayers of any age... ” – Alexey Root, SPARKCHESS

“This attractively produced hardback book offers young chess players tips on how to improve their opening play and tactical eye, via one hundred easy to digest miniature games. Here are a few examples which should prove entertaining for a wide audience from near beginner to about 1600. Newcomers to the game quickly learn the old trap 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nd4? 4.Nxe5? Qg5 5.Nxf7? Qxg2 6.Rf1 Qxe4+ 7.Be2 Nf3 mate. Of course despite its success here 3...Nd4? is not a good move. Burgess shows how the knight hop can work well in a more natural way: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.exd5 Nd4 6.d6 Qxd6 7.Nxf7?? (7.d3) 7...Qc6 8.Nxh8 Qxg2 9.Rf1 Qe4+ 10.Be2 Nf3 mate!

Another example Burgess provides of a well-known trap showing up in a different setting is:
A trap in the English Opening goes 1.c4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.cxd5 Nxd5 4.g3 g6 5.Bg2 Nxc3 6.bxc3 Bg7 7.Rb1 0-0 8.Rxb7! winning a pawn.
Burgess gives a mirror image of this: 1.e4 c5 2.f4 Nc6 3.Nf3 g6 4.Bb5 Bg7 5.Bxc6 bxc6 6.d3 d6 7.0-0 Rb8 8.Qe1 Rxb2! 9.Bxb2 Bxb2 10.Nbd2 Bxa1 11.Qxa1 f6 leaves Black a pawn up.

Chess Opening Traps for Kids would make an excellent stocking stuffer for the young chess player who is new to the game and wanting to study on their own. Recommended” – IM John Donaldson

“I have consulted all of the ‘for Kids’ books by Gambit including Chess OpeningsChess EndgamesChess Tactics and of course the very well-known How to Beat Your Dad at Chess, all of which are very useful coaching tools but I am delighted that there is a new book specifically written about opening traps because, after all, that’s where people get caught initially. This book shows 100 traps, some of which I have never seen myself so this is not just for kids, believe me. A well-presented hardback, consistent with the format in this excellent series, and there are three sections covering Basic Tactics, Combining Ideas and Advanced Concepts. There is also a section at the end to test your opening tactics and see what you have learned. Conclusion: recommended. Kids and adults learning chess will benefit from reading this and learning the various traps, of which there are many to fall into” – Carl Portman’s Book Reviews
