    Five in a Row (Renju) for Beginners to Advanced Players
    Catalog Code: B0066IS

    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. The reason it was necessary to modify the basic game of Five-in-a-Row is that in the traditional game, the player of the first move has such a big advantage that he will win every, or almost every, game.

    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.

    Chess Strategy is the most difficult step in the road to improvement for beginners, requiring a deeper understanding of chess than simply tactics. You can think of combinations as math equations with a given, concrete result that you can prove. But strategy is more like describing the variables in this math problem and how changes will affect all aspects of the surrounding environment.

    American Chess Art
    Catalog Code: CB0038CD

    There is no longer any excuse for study enthusiasts familiar with the contemporary scene to remain uninformed, as I admit to have been myself, about the development of composition on the other side of the Atlantic. All is now revealed by the man most competent to do so. Walter Korn, for many years the leading American endgame columnist, traces the evolution of the endgame study. Walter Korn writes with feeling. He shares the suffering and elation of those he writes about. He has been through it all himself and his descriptive writing stems from a deep love of his subject and of the work of his compatriots. A warm hearted book." - an excerpt from a review by C.M. Bent in the British Chess Magazine.

    Flank Openings
    Catalog Code: B0078IS

    Traditional chess openings emphasize control of the center. Flank Openings are opening systems first developed by such players as Reti and Nimzowitsch in which the player of the white pieces concedes control of the center to Black, but then seeks to undermine the center and cause it to collapse with attacks from the sides. Grandmaster Raymond Keene explains the concepts and ideas behind these chess opening systems.
