Book Description

A very popular chess opening thoroughly modernized.

Grandmaster Dejan Antic and International Master Branimir Maksimovic have written a book that will change the way chess players look at the French Defense, one of the most popular chess openings.

This is a complete and up-to-date work for players of all levels, and contains brand-new concepts in topical modern lines such as the Steinitz, McCutcheon and Morozevich Variations.

The authors explain strategic concepts and methods of attack, and present numerous novelties in all main lines of the French. But they have also developed several sidelines into deadly surprise weapons.

    In Great Chess Romantics, Craig Pritchett selects five players, whose chess artistry expresses a deeply personal commitment to the discovery and revelation of great new truths and beauty on the chessboard.

  • EBOOK - Prepare to Attack
    There's no escaping the fact: if you want to win chess games, you have to attack at some point. Many players are happy solving combinations in winning positions, when the hard work is already done, but the key to a successful attack undoubtedly comes much earlier. No-one can attack effectively if they haven't prepared properly, and yet planning in chess can be a difficult technique to master, even for experienced players.

    As Boris Gelfand deservedly claimed one of his biggest successes ever, the rest of the old guard at the Tal Memorial failed dramatically. Struggling from day one, Vishy Anand and Vladimir Kramnik sensationally ended up at the bottom of the table. Magnus Carlsen finished in second place, but the Norwegian criticized his play as 'too indifferent'. Hikaru Nakamura proudly led the field after six rounds and then collapsed completely.

  • How to Play the From Gambit
    Henry Bird's 1.f4 has become the choice of many players who wish to avoid the voluminous theory surrounding 1.e4, 1.d4 and even 1.c4. If Black plays passively then he is likely to find himself in an inferior line, especially if he allows a reversed Dutch defense. But there is an exciting alternative to the main lines - the From Gambit! With l...e5 Black makes it clear that he is willing to fight. The lines which arise often involve forced piece sacrifices for both sides, and knowledge of the middlegame ideas is critical.
