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.

  • Modern Chess Analysis
    Techniques that have Revolutionized Chess Analysis
    Chess analysis is nearly as old as the game itself, with many of the pioneering works by the giants of chess history being devoted to the analysis of positions, openings and endings. Personal computers and powerful chess software are having a profound effect on chess analysis and theory - most grandmasters use them extensively. However, this book does far more than explain methods for computer-assisted analysis. Readers will develop a deeper understanding of the strengths and limitations of the human mind, and a greater understanding of many areas of chess while working through the examples that Robin Smith presents.

  • EBOOK - Slay the Spanish
    Weapons Against the Ruy Lopez
    Former US Open Champion Timothy Taylor presents weapons for Black against the hugely popular Spanish Opening, with a repertoire based on the Modern Steinitz Defence. This has justifiably earned a reputation as an important alternative to the main lines, and it's easy to see its appeal. The Modern Steinitz can lead to razor-sharp positions, such as in the Siesta Variation, where one slip by either player could prove to be fatal. But a major attraction of the Modern Steinitz is its flexibility, and Black can also choose to play in a more positional manner.
