      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.

      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.

Whether playing White or Black, a study of this book will leave you confident and fully-armed, and your opponents running for cover!

      King's Indian Defense: Yugoslav Variation 6 ...c5
      Catalog Code: CB0029CD

      There is no reason that the variation 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 0-0 5.Nf3 d6 6.0-0 c5 fell out of fashion. Soltis proves this by giving you excellent analysis and strategy in this variation. He brings back a 1950's variation to surprise your opponents. This system has a bit of a Benoni feel to it by attacking white's center with 6..c5 instead of 6..e5. This should be called the Gligoric system since it was the veteran GM Svetozar Gligoric who first demonstrated Black's resources most successfully. This system is a dangerous surprise weapon in the King's Indian that can be employed at all levels.

      SHOPWORN - Nimzo Larsen Attack
      Catalog Code: SWB0169EM

      The Nimzo-Larsen Attack (1. b3) enables White to take his opponent out of his stride from the very first move. By avoiding the theoretical landmines of openings such as the Sicilian and King's Indian Defences, White is able to steer the game towards a pure battle of chess skill, rather than a test of memory. Furthermore, as the games of exponents such as Grandmaster Julian Hodgson have shown, the Nimzo-Larsen Attack often provokes an overreaction by Black, causing him to overextend his position and thereby leave himself open to an early knockout blow.This guide explains the basic elements, strategies and tactics for both sides. It provides everything you need to start playing the Nimzo-Larsen Attack straightaway and is an ideal battle manual for competitive players.
