Semi-Slav Defence - Non-Meran VariationsThe subject of this book, the Semi-Slav, is characterized b the moves ... d5, ... e6 nd ... c6 versus the Queen's Gambit. Inside the reader will find complete coverage of all lines excepting the Meran and the Botvinnik System.
The Semi-Slav is an opening complex which runs the gamut from tactical play (the Marshall Variation 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e5 3. Nc3 c6 4. e4 dxe4 5. Nxe4 Bb4+ 6. Bd2 Qxd2 7. Bxb4 Qxe4+) to refined positional struggles (The Romih Variation 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e5 3. Nc3 c6 4. Nf3 Nf6 5. e3 Nbd7 6. Bd3 Bb4.) In the past, such players as Botvinnik, Kotov, Najdorf, Reshevsky and Euwe debated its finer points. Today's Games all use it on a regular basis.
This book was written by IM John Donaldson and IM Jeremy Silman, two of the most well-respected authors in chess.

SHOPWORN - Prepare to AttackThere's no escaping the fact: if you want to win chess games, you have to attack at some point. Many players are happy solving combinations in winning positions, when the hard work is already done, but the key to a successful attack undoubtedly comes much earlier.
