    CLEARANCE - Nimzovich Attack: Norfolk Gambits
    Catalog Code: CB0018CD

    This is Volume 1 in the author's new series Chess Openings For Hustlers. ''You will find similar lines of attack and similar combination situations in several different lines. These can be either very useful (if you take the time to learn them) or very treacherous. The one thing the Norfolk Gambit should not do is bore you''-author. ''Be warned: If you are a `bean counter' obsessed with saving pawns for an extended end-game, do not play these gambits! However, if you are willing to commit to an attack which will decimate the 'bean counters' of the chess world, this book is for you''- Phillip A. York.

    CLEARANCE - Winning with the Benko Gambit
    Catalog Code: CB0023CD

    Smith & Hall: ''The Benko Gambit is a rare sort of opening: Black offers a pawn on the third move to snatch the initiative from White. The psychological effect is instantaneous. White, who thought he would control the opening with the initial tempo is immediately faced with vexing decisions. 'Do I take the pawn and try to keep it?'(Accepted); 'Do I take it for a little white but offer to return it later?' (Semi-Accepted); 'Or do I avoid the gambit altogether?' (Declined). 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 b5!. In any event we show that whichever course white adopts, black will obtain fluid counter-play. If white commits inaccuracies(even relatively slight ones), Black can quickly seize the initiative. By first studying our familiarization section the student new to the Benko will be given a good overview of all the main variations in the Benko Gambit. Next we present a thorough and up-to-date survey of all the major variations to show how Black can steer play into dynamic counter-play-oriented positions, which will provide exciting games and good practical winning chances. Bash 'em with the Benko!''

    CLEARANCE - The Catalan
    Catalog Code: CB0034CD

    The Catalan Opening is currently in the repertoire of most all of the world's elite players. It has even been played at the World Championship level many times! This is largely because it combines strategic pressure with possibilities for a very sharp, complicated tactical struggle. This is perfect for those who insist on decisive chess. However, there are also some quieter, more solid lines. The Catalan combines the Queen's Gambit pawn duo(d4 and c4) with the hypermodern fianchettoed KB as with 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.g3 or 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3. From g2, the KB strikes through the center squares e4 and d5 and beyond to c6, b7, and a8, applying pressure to Black's Queenside. Another important advantage of the Catalan is that it can be used to side step popular Black defenses such as the Nimzo-Indian and Queen's-Indian. It can also be reached by transpositions from many different move orders. This is very good against strong opposition!

    CLEARANCE - An Unbeatable White Repertoire after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3
    Catalog Code: CB0099CD

    'In this book, we shall provide the student with an unbeatable system for the white pieces after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3. We teach you how to play against the Hungarian Defense, the Philidor Defense, the Latvian Gambit, and the Petroff Defenses. This gets us to the main lines, the Three Knights and Four Knights Game with the Belgrade Gambit included(the 1st time GM Evans ever recommended a gambit!). These 'hold the draw in hand and go for the win' openings have been researched like never before. There is more dynamic play, for those that know them, than ever realized. Here is something to build on if later in your career you want to head for the Giuoco Piano or Ruy Lopez.'' - Ken Smith.

    CLEARANCE - 2. c3 vs the Sicilian and the Smith Morra Gambit
    Catalog Code: CB0050CD

    Part One:1.e4 c5 2.c3 has gained a wide following through the years. White enjoys the central space advantage conferred by a classical pawn center. With rapid piece development, White will get the advantage against anything Black can play. Part Two: 1.e4 c5 2.d4 exd4 3.c3 and Black declines with 3..Nf6, or 3..d3, or 3..d5. We show you how one system transposes into another and when it can't. In all cases, White will obtain promising vistas for dynamic play.

    CLEARANCE - Beating the Pirc/Modern with the Fianchetto Variation
    Catalog Code: CB0074CD

    One of the most solid and consistently successful systems available against 1..d6 and 1..g6 is the subtle Fianchetto. If you play 1.e4, you will want to know how to beat the Pirc/Modern. If you play either of these 2 defenses, you will want to know what will be played against you. The White setup is pawns at e4, d4, and g3, White Knights at c3 and e2, and Bishops at g2 and usually e3 - then attack, attack!

No longer are the openings in the book called ''Irregular'' because GM's and IM's are playing them. Covered are the dynamic 1.b4!, the aggressive Grob's Attack 1.g4!, the surprisingly excellent Queen's Knight Attack 1.Nc3!, slow stuff 1.e3 and 1.d3 and 1.a3, & the disreputable 1.h4 & other white first moves.
