    Book Description

    Many players find that facing the ultra-solid Slav is like banging your head against a brick wall. This book, from an experienced author and strong grandmaster provides a solution. Based around the moves: 1.Nf3 d5 2.c4, Delchev provides original analysis, his own as well as computer generated, and up to date game references from 2011. The repertoire covers both 2...c6 and 2...e6 as well as the independent tries 2...dc and 2...d4.

    The book is divided into 8 sections, each of which is subdivided into a main ideas section, a step-by step theory section and finally some complete illustrative games. There is one section on each of 2...dc and 2...d4, before 4 chapters on the various Slav and Semi-Slav structures and 2 on an anti-Queen's Gambit Declined approach. In short this provides:

    • A tried and tested repertoire against some of the most common and most solid black lines, presented by an established GM author
    • An emphasis on understanding the themes and key ideas rather than a maze of complex variations
    • Up to date game references and analysis that will stand the test of time

    • EBOOK - Attacking Chess - The King's Indian - VOLUME 1
      ng's Indian remains a hugely popular opening - unsurprising given the attacking opportunities it offers. In many of the ultra-sharp main lines, White wins the queenside battle but this often turns out to be a Pyrrhic victory as Black wins the war by checkmating on the kingside! Black is hunting the enemy king and - in practical play - this gives him a psychological edge.

    • Starting Out - Sicilian Najdorf
      he Sicilian Najdorf is one of Black's sharpest and most popular lines against 1 e4. From the very start Black directs the game into asymmetrical positions in which he or she can play for the win without unjustified risk. For this reason the Najdorf has been a firm favourite amongst the very elite of world chess, including Garry Kasparov and, before him, Bobby Fischer. In Starting Out: Sicilian Najdorf Richard Palliser takes a fresh look at this famous opening.

    • Dynamic Chess Strategy
      Expanded and Updated
      In the battle of chess ideas, the publication in 1991 of Dynamic Chess Strategy was a defining moment. Before Mihai Suba's exceptional book, chess writers had neglected one of the most important factors of a chess position: its dynamic potential. Suba demonstrated that the traditional concept of improving the position was often static and irrelevant, and that classical strategy, if applied dogmatically, can prevent you from finding the right plan and its subsequent moves.
