Book Description

This manual fills a big gap in chess literature. After 1.d4, probably the most widely played opening move in the world, Black can avoid main line theory by deviating into a whole variety of irritating unorthodox sidelines. White players often stumble into unknown and dangerous territory where their tricky opponent awaits them, fully prepared.

Acclaimed chess author Valeri Bronznik provides sound and user-friendly answers to no less then nineteen unusual variations and gambits. Against the Budapest Gambit, Marshall Defence, Englund Gambit, Baltic Defence, Schara-Hennig Gambit, Keres Defence and many others, chess amateurs are presented with easy-to-learn plans and comprehensive counter-attacks.

After studying this book, club and internet chess players will be fully armed to deal with all of Black's offbeat tries. From now on they will be able to beat the guerrillas!

  • Garry Kasparov on Modern Chess - VOLUME II
    Kasparov vs. Karpov - 1975-1985
    This volume concentrates on the first two of those matches. The epic 1984/85 contest which was lasted six months before being controversially halted "without result" by the then President of FIDE Florencio Campomanes. The 1985 match when Kasparov brilliantly won the final game to take the title and become - at the age of 22 - the youngest ever world champion. Great chess contests have often had resonances extending beyond the 64 squares. The Fischer v Spassky match was played during the Cold War with both champions being perceived as the finest products of their respective ideologies.
