    Strategic Chess Exercises
    Find the Right Plan to Outplay Your Opponent
    Catalog Code: B0198NIC

    Books on chess exercises are usually about tactics. But in most of the positions that you think about during a game, there is no tactical solution. What you are doing most of the time is trying to find a way to improve your position or weaken your opponent's, by applying strategic rules. Experienced chess trainer Emmanuel Bricard has created a practical exercise manual with carefully selected and tested training positions that teach you how to develop the right plan.

    E-DVD Winning with Positional Sacrifice by GM Victor Mikhalevski

    Often the positional sacrifice comes with an element of surprise. This additional psychological component makes it a very effective weapon in practical chess. In a matter of a single move, the game can take a completely different course and not many players are prepared for that. That’s why the positional sacrifice is a fundamental element of the game that everyone should study to grow as a chess player.

    Small Steps to Giant Improvement - HARDCOVER
    Master Pawn Play in Chess
    Catalog Code: B0145QT

    This irreversibility makes Pawn Play among the most difficult aspects of chess strategy, which is one reason few books have been written about this topic – and some that have are almost incomprehensible. 2018 US Champion Sam Shankland has gone the other way – breaking down the principles of Pawn Play to basic, easily understandable guidelines every chess player should know. Shankland starts with extremely simple examples, but then lifts the level, illustrating the universality of the book’s guidelines by showing how grandmasters could have made better decisions by using them.

    Pieces, Pawns and Squares - Adrian Mikhalchishin
    Catalog Code: WIN0527CB

    It is known that pieces are more difficult to handle than pawns – but sometimes they can help each other, e.g. if it is about conquering a square!

Special attention is paid to the technique of piece transfer which helps to coordinate different attacks much more effectively. Treated themes: how to create weaknesses, how to conquer and exploit important squares, the powerful helping pawn, piece transfer to strongholds, coordination in the attack.

    Catalog Code: DVD0169CL

    More experienced players understand the power of the bishop. Bishops usually gain in relative strength towards the endgame as pieces are captured and more lines become available on the board. A bishop can easily influence both wings of the board simultaneously. In an open endgame, a pair of bishops is decidedly superior to either a bishop and a knight, or two knights. A player possessing a pair of bishops has a strategic weapon in the form of a long-term threat to trade down to an advantageous endgame.

Are they weak, prone to being collected by our opponent in the endgame – or sooner? In the first work devoted exclusively to this topic, the author examines the various pawn structures in which doubled pawns appear.

Books, which will be published in the coming years as part of the series, are planned to cover all frequently discussed themes, as well as many others topics — those about which chess players and also trainers usually do not think as deeply as they should in order to achieve better results.
