Of particular interst to club players is Marin's discussion of how to defend against unsound attacks, and th eproblem of how to parry the attack while retaining winning chances. Other topics include attack and defence in equal positions, where both sides must judge carefully how much of their resources to devote to the attack and the counter-attack. The main subject, though, is teh case where the defender is fighting for his life, and must decide how to maximise his chances of survival. Marin considers phsychological issues and explains the mainoptions available to the defender: simplification, cold-blooded defence, a postional sacrifice, 'blackmailing' the attacker, or a counter-attack.
