500 English MiniaturesAuthor Bill Wall presents another in his popular series of miniature games - games completed in 25 moves or less - this time in the English Opening. His compilation includes games involving Grandmasters as well as wood pushers. These collections have proven to be valuable to players who wish to see typical mistakes and how they are punished. But many readers simply find these games very entertaining. Quick victories have always been popular for light reading - the thrust of a quick mating attack or win has a certain attraction. Bill Wall adds light notes to illustrate better lines, or the continuation when an early resignation leaves it not too obvious how material will be lost or mate will follow.

Essential Chess Sacrifices
A Guide to the Sacrifices that are most Fundamental to Understanding Chess>Sacrifices are an essential part of chess. Those who never consider sacrificing will miss countless opportunities and find that promising positions repeatedly slip away. Players who do not appreciate their opponents' sacrificial possibilities will be unable to see danger signs, and find themselves on the wrong end of too many king-hunts. Rather than merely cataloguing the various possibilities and providing examples, LeMoir discusses the possible follow-ups to the sacrifices, the defensive options against them, and the positional factors that might suggest whether the sacrifice will be sound or unsound.
