      New Art of Defense in Chess
      Catalog Code: B0121BT

      Most chess games are not won – they are lost. Many instructional chess books tell you how to improve a position when it is already (or may be) favourable. This book offers help when you definitely do not have the advantage. Every chess player needs a sound arsenal of defensive techniques. This book covers them all – counterplay, when to accept sacrifices, how to anticipate short- and long-term threats, and how to minimize losses. It also helps you create a strong underlying psychological framework for defensive technique – it teaches you how to stay cool under fire, how to stonewall and how to exploit your opponent's weaknesses.

      The Secret Life of Bad Bishops
      Catalog Code: B0101QT

      The Bad Bishop is a notorious villain in chess, but often a perfectly respectable bishop is falsely accused. The Secret Life of Bad Bishops takes an in-depth look at the bishop – not just dealing with good and bad bishops but also more nuanced cases where a “double-edged bishop” could turn out to be a game-winning hero or a fatal liability. All phases of chess are covered, from opening to middlegame to endgame. The final two chapters test the reader’s newly enhanced understanding with carefully chosen exercises and instructive solutions.

      Stinking Bishops
      Catalog Code: B0087OB

      Good-humoured dialogue is the reader-friendly technique, Stinking Bishops uses to present a pair of related but puzzling practical endgames. Take bishops: 'unlike' contrast with 'like'. Add a black and a white rook, then just a single white pawn, and we have seven chessmen. The 'books' are silent on this endgame, as indeed they are on all 7-man endings. Stinking Bishops is not deterred, venturing politely to differ, voicing a minority view. It investigates both cases, in the average player's company, and at his pace, consistently eschewing acres of so-called 'analysis' -- and in the process breaks new ground in chess literature.

      Middlegame Transition Guide - EMPIRE CHESS
      How GMs Transition from Opening to Middle Game
      Catalog Code: DVD0076EP

      This DVD presents the guide for transition to the middlegame, how GMs plan the passage from the opening to the middlegame, paying particular attention to how the choice of opening decides the plans on how to follow on to the middlegame and the endgame. During the middlegame, the player can lose the advantage they obtained in the opening if they do not know how to correctly enact their plan; just as it happens to experts in endgames. If you do not obtain an advantageous position in the middlegame, it will be very difficult to achieve victory in the endgame.
