For casual players and club players.
Every chess player loves to win early in the game with a deadly combination or a cunning trap. On the other hand, nobody wants to be tricked by his opponent before the game has really started.
The popular series Tactics in the Chess Opening teaches how to recognize opportunities to attack early in the game. You will also learn how to avoid standard pitfalls in the opening. This book explains, in around 230 carefully selected and annotated games, all the tactical themes and typical traps of the main lines in the Indian Openings and related systems like the Catalan Opening and the Benoni Defence. After studying these brilliant surprise attacks, or just enjoying them, the adventurous chess player will win more games.

Praise for previous volumes in the Tactics in the Chess Opening series:

An excellent way to study.
Australian Chess Magazine
A useful opening guide, with lots of opening ideas that can be assimilated by everyone.
Jeremy Silman, author of How to Reassess Your Chess
An excellent primer or book to stimulate ideas.
British Federation for Correspondence Chess

A high quality product that is particularly appropriate to give the average club and tournament player an overall grasp on the dangers and opportunities available in a given opening.
IM John Watson, TWIC

What an irresistible feat of attacking play!
Paul Motwani in The Scotsman

The annotations are to the point, detailed but not so much as to lose the reader. This book should be a pleasurable way for those below 2200 to master the fundamentals of tactical play.
IM John Donaldson
