      Sicilian Attacks
      Powerful Charges & Topical Tactics
      Catalog Code: B0093NIC

      Against most Sicilian variations, White's sharpest and often best weapon is queenside castling, a strategy that frequently leads to spectacular fireworks. Regrettably, these powerful charges have never been properly categorized. Until this book.In Sicilian Attacks, Grandmaster Yuri Yakovich, who has more than thirty years of experience with complex Sicilian systems, analyses the Najdorf, the Scheveningen, the Dragon, the Taimanov and the Richter-Rauzer Variations.

      The Wonderful Winawer
      Strategic Ideas & Surprise Weapons for Dynamic Chess Players
      Catalog Code: B0094NIC

      The widely-played Winawer Variation has been called 'the jewel in the crown of the French Defence'. It is easy to see why. This is an opening for players who love a real fight. Black immediately attacks White's centre and the resulting positional dynamics offer chances to both sides.

      The Four Knights Game
      A New Adventure in an Old Chess Opening
      Catalog Code: B0108NIC

      The Four Knights variation is one of the oldest chess openings, dating back to the 16th century. In recent years it has been injected with numerous fresh ideas and has shaken off the reputation of being a peaceful choice. White has quite a few ways to create tension and play for the attack.

      Hit the Nimzowitsch Variation with 6. d5!
      Catalog Code: B0141NIC

      The ultra-sharp pawn sacrifice 6.d5 has caused a revolution in the 4… Ba6 line of the Queen’s Indian Defence in recent years. The ingenious gambit was hotly debated at the highest level by players like Alexey Shirov, for White, and Peter Leko, for Black. At club level it became a dangerous weapon for attackers.

      1.d4 - Beat the Guerrillas!
      A Powerful Opening Repertoire Against Annoying Black Sidelines
      Catalog Code: B0107NIC

      This manual fills a big gap in chess literature.

      The Nimzo-Larsen Attack - A Friend for Life
      Catalog Code: B0001NIC

      The popularity of the Nimzo-Larsen Attack is largely based on its surprise value, but in fact 1.b3 is one of White's more logical first moves, since by immediately developing his queen's bishop, White aims at undermining the black centre.

      More than 85% of all chess games start with either 1.e4 or 1.d4. The Black Lion presents a flexible, logical and sensible way for Black to meet both of these moves.

      The Caro-Kann Defence has become one of the most important and popular replies to 1.e4. Its ‘solid’ and ‘drawish’ reputation no longer applies in modern chess. In fact, White could do with some new ideas to fight for an advantage in this chess opening.
