  • Liquidation on the Chess Boardby Joel Benjamin

    New in Chess 2015; US$ 16.99

    Pawn endings do not arise out of nowhere. Before emerging as endgames with just kings and pawns, they 'pre-existed' in positions that still contained any number of pieces.

  • Sveshnikov vs the Anti-Siciliansby Evgeny Sveshnikov

    New in Chess 2015; US$ 20.99

    The Sicilian Defence is Black?s most popular reply to 1.e4. Most black players hope to get an Open Sicilian because of its unbalanced play and interesting opportunities to play for a win. But what if White avoids the Open Sicilian and does not play 2.Nf3? This happens more often than you would think, as in roughly one third of the cases White... more...
