    Reti - Move by Move
    Catalog Code: B0448EM

    Richard Réti is one of the most fascinating characters in the history of chess. Réti developed theories that were regarded as little less than revolutionary in his era. He asserted that, contrary to classical principles, the centre need not be occupied by pawns. This must have seemed like heresy to the classically-minded grandmasters of his day. This new approach was dubbed “Hypermodern” and led to the development of the Réti Opening (1 Nf3). Réti’s theories have been proved sound and have stood the test of time. Réti scored many fine wins against the great players of his day.

    The Modern Chess Instructor
    Foreward by Andy Soltis
    Catalog Code: B0104RE

    More than 125 years ago, one of the first great chess books appeared. The Modern Chess Instructor, Part I, written by then world champion Wilhelm Steinitz, was released in 1889. It was his magnum opus, setting forth for the first time the principles of modern chess. It is no exaggeration to say that Steinitz’s writings have influenced every great player. This 21st century edition has converted the archaic English descriptive notation to algebraic and reformatted the text so that it conforms to the expectations of the 21st century chessplayer. The Modern Chess Instructor’s rare second part, published in 1895, has also been added. The result is a genuine treasure trove of original ideas coupled with exposition of the foundation of modern chess theory. Every chessplayer will find The Modern Chess Instructor enjoyable and instructive, a journey back to the theoretical roots of modern chess.
