      A Cutting-Edge Gambit against the Queen’s Indian
      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.

      Tackling 1.e4 with 1...e5
      Catalog Code: B0137NIC

      The Petroff Defence is anything but dull. Although it is a frequent choice of top grandmasters, club players often fear that it leads to passive play. This book will debunk this prejudice and open new vistas.

      Steamrolling the Sicilian
      Play For a Win with 5. f3!
      Catalog Code: B0135NIC

      Are you looking for a way to outwit theory-sharks in the Open Sicilian? Then this may just be the book for you.

      The Extreme Caro-Kann
      Attacking Black with 3.f3
      Catalog Code: B0140NIC

      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.

      The Liberated Bishop Defence
      A Surprising and Complete Black Repertoire Against 1. d4
      Catalog Code: B0151NIC

      In many 1.d4 openings, Black has trouble getting his bishop on c8 into play. Former Russian Chess Champion Alexey Bezgodov presents a radical solution to this nagging problem; liberate your bishop right away and put it on f5 on the second move! Play 2...Bf5! against either 2.c4 or 2.Nf3 will surprise your opponent and is also a great way to support your development, because the bishop takes control of the important square e4.

      Sveshnikov vs. the Anti-Sicilians
      A Complete Repertoire for Black
      Catalog Code: B0152NIC

      The Sicilian Defence is Black’s most popular reply to 1.e4. Most Black players hope for an Open Sicilian, seeking unbalanced positions and opportunities to play for a win. No wonder that in roughly one-third of the games White does not play 2.Nf3 and chooses one of numerous ‘Anti-Sicilian’ lines. Ranging from primitive and aggressive to respected but tedious, these Anti-Sicilians have one thing in common: they all cross Black's plans and steer for territories where it is easy to get ambushed. Evgeny Sveshnikov offers help. The world-famous Sicilian expert tackles these annoying lines one by one. With great ingenuity he presents a watertight repertoire that consists of practical and effective opening ideas.

Moskalenko himself plays this chess opening with both colours and covers the entire spectrum for White as well as Black:
