    Book Description

    The art of strategic planning is not easily acquired from most teaching materials, yet it is one of the most important aspects of practical play. In this book, positional factors have been approached, with examples showing how a certain specific weakness can be exploited by specific means. This book includes complete games where the strategic and positional factors are seen in the complex interplay of the middle game and end game.

    • Seven Ways to Smash the Sicilian
      One of the main reasons the Sicilian is the most popular opening is that is it promotes such bold and aggressive chess. But as White it's not enough just to attack; you must do so in the right way, using the appropriate weapons. In this book Yury Lapshun and Nick Conticello introduce, categorize and analyse the "Seven Deadly Sacrifices" White has at his disposal.

    • EBOOK - Dynamic Reti
      The Reti Opening has been a popular choice at all levels of chess for many years and is a favorite among hypermodern players who like to control the center with pieces. Yet there remains a dearth of published material on this subject ... until now. In The Dynamic Reti, Grandmaster Nigel Davies redresses the balance and advocates a repertoire for White based on this refined opening. Davies outlines the typical ideas and tactics for both White and Black, and studies both the fashionable main lines and the tricky sidelines. If you already play the Reti or are looking for a sophisticated new opening weapon, then this is essential reading.

      * A dynamic repertoire for White
      * Full explanation of the most important thematic ideas
      * Ideal for club and tournament players

      Botvinnik One Hundred Selected Games is a direct translation in Descriptive Notation of a book in Russian published in Leningrad in 1949.

He won the World Chess Championship in 1948 and held the title with two breaks until 1963. This book covers the most important period of his career from the time he played in his first serious chess event until just before his winning the World Chess Championship in 1948.
