  • The Giant Chess Puzzle Book
    1001 Brand New Chess Puzzles to Challenge and Entertain Players from Novices to Grandmasters
    Tactical skills are paramount in chess. More than anything else, a player's ability to find tactical solutions determines how successful he is over-the-board. No endgame scheme, opening idea or strategic plan, however brilliant a concept it may be, is of any value unless it is accurately calculated and implemented.

    The best way to develop tactical skills is to practice them by tackling new and challenging positions. This book provides a wealth of chess puzzles to test just about every facet of your tactical ability. It is very unlikely that even those who have read many other chess puzzle books will recognize more than a handful of these positions. Franco has searched recent events and used powerful computers to seek out previously unpublished puzzles, and has also drawn extensively upon Latin American sources that he has been scouring for brilliant examples over the last three decades.

    Following the pattern of Gambit's hugely successful Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book (by John Emms), the book begins with 100 relatively easy positions suitable for novices, and ends with 100 extremely tough puzzles, which provide a mind-bending challenge even for grandmasters. There are 1001 puzzles in all, including themed sections and graded tests, all with detailed computer-verified solutions and verbal explanations of the main instructive points.

  • 1974 Chess Olympiad
    The Biennial Chess Olympiad is the official World Team Championship and rivals the individual World Championship as the premier event in the chess calendar. The 1974 Olympiad, which took place at Nice on the French Riviera, had a record entry of 74 national teams. The Soviet Union once again captured the gold medal, the USA, without Fischer, made their best result for eight years to win the bronze medal behind Yugoslavia in second place.

    This book covers the story of the Olympiad with 130 annotated games, nearly half of them annotated by Grandmasters, complete tables of team performances in both the preliminary and the final groups, tables of every individual result of every player and the results of all past Olympiads.

  • 365 Selected Endgames
    One for Each Day of the Year
    This book is written in both German and English. Some knowledge of both Classic notation and Algebraic (mainly the latter) is needed to follow all the notes. The book is mainly a series of fairly difficult endgame studies. I went through the book and solved each problem in the manner that the authors suggested in their preface. It helped me win many Chess tournament games that would have otherwise been draws and also draw many games that should have been lost.
