    CLEARANCE - Petrosian - Move by Move
    Catalog Code: B0386EM

    Tigran Petrosian was a World Chess Champion and a true legend of the game. He was nicknamed ''Iron Tigran'' because of his incredible defensive skills that made him a formidable opponent who was virtually impossible to defeat. Petrosian was the master of restraint, prophylaxis and prevention. He could spot and defuse threats well before they were created, suck the life out an opponent's position and then seize a vice-like grip on the game. In this book, International Master Thomas Engqvist selects and examines his favourite Petrosian games, and shows us how we can all learn and improve our chess by studying Petrosian's masterpieces.

    SHOPWORN - Mikhail Chigorin
    The Creative Genius
    Catalog Code: SWB0171NIC

    Mikhail Chigorin (1850-1908), the first great Russian chess master, belongs to that select group of exceptionally strong players who did not quite succeed in winning the world championship. He remains universally admired for his creative and courageous style of play. He would always play to win, not only by his famed dashing attacks but also by precise calculation of variations, purposeful maneuvering and exploitation of positional weaknesses, artful defense and refined endgame play. This book is a hugely expanded second edition of a book published in 1987.

    The Essential Guide to Endgame Fundamentals.

    How can you improve your chess? It's not by chance that the top players say: 'Study the endgame!' This is because a great number of encounters reach the endgame, and studying these positions will teach you how to convert winning positions, and how to save or even overturn inferior ones. Moreover, it's a well-known fact that studying endgames undoubtedly enhances other aspects of your play.

    SHOPWORN - Liquidation on the Chess Board
    Mastering the Transition into the Pawn Endgame
    Catalog Code: SWB0149NIC

    Pawn endings do not arise out of nowhere. Before emerging as endgames with just kings and pawns, they 'pre-existed' in positions that still contained any number of pieces. Liquidation is the purposeful transition into a pawn ending. It is a vital technique that is seldom taught. Strange, because knowing when and how to liquidate can help you win games or save draws. In this book, former US Chess Champion Joel Benjamin teaches you all you need to know about successfully liquidating into pawn endgames.

    Reinfeld on the Endgame
    21st Century Edition
    Catalog Code: B0103RE

    Reinfeld on the Endgame is a very fine specialty book about several aspects of endgames. It concentrates on a very difficult, too-often glossed over aspect of the transition between the middlegame and the endgame. Each section is introduced with pithy explanations, and each example is shown and then summarized. It all begins with transitions into a favorable endgame, dividing the topic into material or positional advantages. This skill is often known as winning technique, and a good explanation of how it is done is invaluable. Here we get that explanation by one of the most prolific chess writers of the twentieth century.

    SHOPWORN - Van Perlo's Endgame Tactics - 4TH EDITION
    A Comprehensive Guide to the Sunny Side of Chess Endgames
    Catalog Code: SWB0053NIC

    ENDGAME TACTICS is an affordable guide that reduces the psychological burden of endgame instruction by showing that endgames are actually quite enjoyable because of the tactics! There is no substitute for hard work in getting better at chess, but the fact of the matter is that we always work harder at something we love. By enjoying the entertainment of real life endgame tactics, and (at least for the moment) forgetting about theoretical positions that seem distant from everyday practice, the amateur player learns to love the endgame.
