A Complete Guide to the Grivas Sicilian
Save -$23.95
This book is in every way a definitive guide: Efstratios Grivas provides the inside story on a variation of the Sicilian Defence that he has worked for more than 20 years to perfect, and which rightly bears his name. The Grivas Sicilian (1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Qb6) has proved itself sound and reliable in practice, but is also far less well investigated than most Sicilian systems. Th...

Chess for Zebras
Jonathan Rowson, author of the highly acclaimed Seven Deadly Chess Sins, investigates three questions important to all chess-players: 1) Why is it so difficult, especially for adult players, to improve? 2) What kinds of mental attitudes are needed to find good moves in different phases of the game? 3) Is White's alleged first-move advantage a myth, and does it make a difference whether you are ...

This is the first book devoted to this fundamental area of the chess struggle. Viacheslav Eingorn draws upon his vast experience to provi...

How to Play Dynamic Chess
Chess is fundamentally a dynamic game. Each move changes the situation and the possibilities for both sides. The scope and value of pieces can change radically during the course of a game. The current generation of supergrandmasters play unrelenting dynamic chess, but a great deal of chess literature still deals with chess as if it were a predominantly static game. Much of our understanding of ...

King's Indian and Grunfeld: Fianchetto Lines
By calmly fianchettoing his king's bishop in reply to the King's Indian and Grunfeld, White seeks to draw the sting from these dynamic defenses and exert positional pressure throughout the middlegame. By refusing to create a massive pawn-centre, he offers Black no target for counter play. Some of the lines become very sharp, especially if Black makes an all-out attempt to generate counter play ...

Play the 4 f3 Nimzo Indian
The Nimzo-Indian is an extremely popular and reliable defence, upon which most world champions have relied at some point in their careers. Black controls the vital e4-square with his pieces, and retains total flexibility with his central pawns. By playing 4 f3, White challenges Black's idea head-on. Either Black grants White control of e4, or else he must commit his pawn to d5, whereupon White ...
