    Five in a Row (Renju) for Beginners to Advanced Players

    Renju, as the game is known in Japanese or Lianzhu in Chinese, is a modified and improved version of the ancient game of Five-in-a-Row, also known by its Japanese name of Gomoku.

    Bobby Fischer for Beginners
    The Most Famous Chess Player Explained
    Catalog Code: B0090NIC

    Bobby Fischer's lone fight against the Soviet chess powerhouse made him a global hero, also for people who did not play chess at all. The Russians trembled before him, the Americans and the rest of the world cheered him on. Fischer's chess prowess and his will to win were unparalleled. But so were his eccentric behaviour and his paranoia. After he won the world title, Bobby Fischer vanished and the former prodigy became a mystery. The memories of his successwere clouded by his anti-American and anti-Semite rants.

    Catalog Code: CB0158RB

    by Eduard Gufeld, 262 pp. (The Alternative Press 1994). Chess computers have revolutionized the learning process for beginners and casual players. Few existing books fully utilize the inherent possibilities: e.g. to speed up the ability to absorb chess information. The Art of Mastering Chess tries to fill this gap, and if used together with a chess computer with a programmable option, will allow beginners to advance their Ilo-rating annually by at least 100 points over conventional methods.
