    Say No to Chess Principles!
    Catalog Code: B0045TH

    In this, his first book for Thinkers Publisher, Evgeny investigates, in his inimitable style, the current modern approach to chess. Players sometimes blindly follow rules, restricting themselves to what they have learned without even considering successfully "breaking" the rules.

Grandmaster Bareev may surprise you with this groundbreaking subject, we promise you it will be a pleasant surprise!
