    365 Selected Endgames
    This book is written in both German and English. Some knowledge of both Classic notation and Algebraic (mainly the latter) is needed to follow all the notes. The book is mainly a series of fairly difficult endgame studies. I went through the book and solved each problem in the manner that the authors suggested in their preface. It helped me win many Chess tournament games that would have otherwise been draws and also draw many games that should have been lost.

    Fighting the Anti-Sicilians
    The Sicilian Defence is by far Black's most popular answer to 1. e4 at all levels of chess. The reason for this is easy to understand: from the very first move Black unbalances the position and can play for a win without needing to take unjustified risks. This is particularly the case with the Open Sicilian, where Black can take comfort from the knowledge that his superior pawn structure ensures control of the centre and excellent long-term chances.

    Philidor Files
    The Philidor is a dynamic and underrated answer to White's most popular opening move, 1. e4. Recently it has acquired something of a cult following amongst certain Grandmasters; its supporters include the French number one Etienne Bacrot and the former European Champion Liviu Dieter-Nisipeanu. One of its major selling points is its flexibility - Black even has a choice of two opening moves. It also suits a wide variety of playing styles. Games can lead to sharp, tactical duels as well as strategic, positional battles.

    In this book Christian Bauer, himself a renowned Philidor expert, uncovers the secrets behind this intriguing opening. Using his own experience and other top-class Philidor games, Bauer identifies both the critical main lines and the tricky sidelines. He also examines the key tactical and strategic ideas for both White and Black, while highlighting crucial issues such as move-order options - a major weapon for the modern Grandmaster.

    * Comprehensive coverage of a provocative opening
    * Packed with original analysis
    * Ideal for club and tournament players

The Grunfeld very much relies on the principles of the hyper-modern school of chess: Black allows White to erect an impressive-looking center on the assumption that in the long run it could prove to be more of a liability than an asset.
