By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Moveformat greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.

In this book, Sicilian expert Lorin D'Costa invites you to join him in examining the opening. He highlights the typical plans and tactics for both sides, constructs a repertoire for Black and provides answers to all the key questions

  • Essential guidance and training in the Sicilian Scheveningen

  • Trophy Chess
    An Account of the Lessing Rosenwald Tournament - NY 1954-1955
    Trophy Chess was one of Bobby Fischer's favorite books. He studied it with great care during his sudden appearance right after this tournament and his rapid rise to the top, culminating in his winning his first of eight US Chess Championships in 1957/58. It is nicely laid out and designed and is easy to read. In his famous "My 60 Memorable Games" Fischer later collaborated with Evans, who served as his second during his rise to the world championship and became one of America's best-selling chess authors with over 20 books to his credit.

  • Grandmaster Chess
    The Book of the Louis D. Statham Lone Pine Masters-Plus Tournament 1975
    Lone Pine 1975 was the first ever truly Grandmaster Swiss event. Today, with many grandmaster Swiss events taking place every year, such as the Aeroflot Open, the Reykjavik Open, and many others, not to mention the World Open, bringing together 22 grandmasters to play in a Swiss tournament does not seem that remarkable. Even the title, Grandmaster Chess, seems to be a bit hackneyed with so many grandmaster events being played today.
