      The Quality Chess Puzzle Book

      Our Price: $29.95

      The Quality Chess Puzzle Book starts with less difficult thematic combinations, then moves on to various scenarios where tactics arise such as in Endgames, Defence, Positions with Pawn Promotions and even the games of Vassily Ivanchuk, before ending with the appropriately named Brain Crushers, where the reader's challenge is made more realistic by puzzles where the crash-bang-wallop moment is a few moves in the future.

    3. Ruy Lopez Revisited

      The Ruy Lopez (or Spanish Opening) is one of the oldest and most important chess openings, popular with amateurs as well as professional players.

      Our Price: $25.95
      To help bring to the United States chess of the highest quality in the world, Mrs. Gregor Piatigorsky and her husband, the world renowned cellist, created the Piatigorsky Cup as a symbol of excellence in chess.

    6. Flank Openings

      Flank Openings

      Our Price: $25.95
      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. Learn More
    7. Fundamental Chess Openings (FCO)

      Fundamental Chess Openings (FCO)

    8. 6th American Chess Congress

      6th American Chess Congress

      Our Price: $34.95

      New York 1889 was the strongest chess tournament ever held up until that time. It was supposed to be for the World Chess Championship, but it has never been recognized as such, primarily because Steinitz, who helped organize the event and who was present as a journalist, refused to play.

    9. Howard Staunton - The English World Chess Champion

      Howard Staunton - The English World Chess Champion

      Our Price: $25.95
      Howard Staunton (1810 - 22 June 1874) was an English chess master who is generally regarded as having been the world's strongest player from 1843 to 1851. He promoted a chess set of clearly distinguishable pieces of standardised shape that is still the style which must be used for competitions. He was the principal organizer of the first international chess tournament in 1851. From 1840 onwards he became a leading chess commentator, and won matches against top players of the 1840s. However, the achievement of Staunton have been neglected or even ignored by his own countrymen and this book seeks to rectify that. Learn More

      World Chess Championship - Kasparov vs. Anand

      Our Price: $25.95

      The Champion: Garry Kasparov, Seemingly invincible, but showing signs of some frailty when bombarded with ideas from the young generation of players.

    12. Play The Ponziani

      Play The Ponziani

      Our Price: $27.95
      The Ponziani Opening enjoys a long history, but for some unknown reason it has been neglected in recent times. Don't be fooled by its apparently harmless reputation: the Ponziani is full of tricks and catches many unsuspecting opponents by surprise. It's also a perfect weapon for those who don't fancy learning the masses of theory associated with more high-profile openings like the Ruy Lopez. Learn More
    13. Studies for Practical Players

      Studies for Practical Players

      Our Price: $24.95

      Nowadays, chessplayers spend almost all their free time preparing openings, and rarely spend the time necessary to perfect the vitally important technique of calculating. Regular training in solving and playing out endgame studies is a good recipe for eliminating that shortcoming. This training is directed at developing resourcefulness, fantasy (in chess, these qualities are called "combinative acuity"), and the readiness to sacrifice material, in pursuit of the goal - winning!

      Scotch Game for White

      Our Price: $27.95

      The Scotch Game is a solid positional opening which has been studied and tested in practice by the strongest chess players in the world in a period of more than two centuries. The idea behind the Scotch Game is simple and easily understandable. White eliminates in a purely mechanical fashion Black's e5-pawn which impedes his ambition to dominate in the centre.

      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.

      In August 2008 Andres D. Hortillosa entered the New England Masters. It was a brave choice for an unrated player to compete in such a tough event, but it proved to be an inspired decision; he exceeded all expectations and was rewarded with a FIDE international rating of 2199. This, however, was no overnight success; it was the result of systematic work. How did he achieve such outstanding improvement? The answer lies in this book. Learn More

      Our Price: $19.95
