    Win With The Stonewall Dutch
    Rock Solid or Flexible - Your Choice!
    Catalog Code: B0137GB

    The Stonewall Dutch is a traditional favourite amongst club players, as it offers Black ready-made attacking plans on the kingside. As Grandmaster Bent Larsen has noted, the Dutch also has the tendency to 'bring out the coward' in opponents, giving it an added practical sting. However, up until the late 1980s, the Stonewall wasn't fully trusted at grandmaster level, despite its earlier use by Alekhine and Botvinnik. Black's attacking plans were too one-sided, and White's methods too well worked out.

    Fundamental Chess Openings (FCO)
    A New One-Volume Guide to All the Chess Openings
    Catalog Code: B0142GB

    The first moves of a chess game define the nature of the whole struggle, as both players stake their claim to the critical squares and start to develop their plans. It is essential to play purposefully and to avoid falling into traps or reaching a position that you don't understand.

    Fundamental Chess Openings (FCO)

    A Cunning Chess Opening Repertoire for White
    A Flexible Repertoire To Take Your Opponents Out Of Their Comfort Zone
    Catalog Code: B0184GB

    In this book, highly experienced chess opening writer Graham Burgess presents a repertoire based on 1 d4 and Nf3 with precisely those aims. Black’s possibilities for counterplay - and sharp gambit play - are kept to a minimum. Our aim is to give Black exactly the type of position he doesn’t want. If he is seeking blocked positions with pawn-chains, we’ll keep the game fluid. If he wants complex strategy, we’ll attack him with simple piece-play. Simplifications? No thanks, we’ll keep the pieces on and intensify the battle. Gambits? Hardly, as we simply prevent most of them!

    A Strategic Chess Opening Repertoire for White
    A Complete Plan of Attack with 1. d4 and 2. c4
    Catalog Code: B0181GB

    Such has been the acclaim for John Watson's ground-breaking works on modern chess strategy and his insightful opening books, that it is only natural that he now presents a strategic opening repertoire.

    Understanding The Marshall Attack
    A Layman's Guide to the Supergrandmasters' Favourite Gambit
    Catalog Code: B0160GB

    The Marshall Attack is a chess opening like no other. Rather than subjecting himself to the 'Spanish torture' so typical in the Ruy Lopez, Black simply gives away a centre pawn. But in return, he gets long-term attacking chances and activity that can persist well into the endgame.

    Understanding The Marshall Attack

    Understanding the Scandinavian
    A Reliable and Challenging System for Black
    Catalog Code: B0191GB

    The appeal of the Scandinavian Defence is easy to understand: it is very forcing and Black is virtually guaranteed to get his desired structure. There are no annoying Anti-Scandinavians' to study! This thoroughly modern guide focuses on these new approaches, while also covering the more traditional main lines.
