    by Eduard Gufeld, 262 pp. (The Alternative Press 1994). Chess computers have revolutionized the learning process for beginners and casual players. Few existing books fully utilize the inherent possibilities: e.g. to speed up the ability to absorb chess information. The Art of Mastering Chess tries to fill this gap, and if used together with a chess computer with a programmable option, will allow beginners to advance their Ilo-rating annually by at least 100 points over conventional methods.

    • Rook vs. 2 Minor Pieces
      Many chess players shy away from positions with material imbalances, because they feel insecure in the face of their unclear nature. Traditional chess teaching does not spend much time on understanding such imbalances, but in this original book Esben Lund discusses one of the most common imbalances, where one player has a rook, and the other two minor pieces.

    • Analyse du je des d'echecs - FRENCH EDITION
      >Francois-Andre Danican Philidor (1726-1795) is widely regarded as the strongest chess player ever in history prior to the modern era. He was so much better than any of his contemporaries that it is impossible for us to know how good he really was. The edition of the book that is reprinted here was published in 1871 by C. Sanson. This shows that the original Philidor book was still the standard work on the subject one hundred years after it was first written.

    • Gambits
      In this work he presents a convincing case for players to adopt gambit play. "Only by playing gambits will the chessplayer begin to understand that getting active positions, with the possibility of landing combinative shots, will compensate him for the material sacrificed." Estrin presents concepts and lines of play in every major opening. He provides many practical illustrations, and the number of examples given from his own games clearly shows that he practices what he advocates. 115 diagrams aid the reader in following the analysis. If you don't play these lines, your opponent will!
