    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.
