    EBOOK - Slay the Spanish
    Weapons Against the Ruy Lopez
    Catalog Code: E-B0323EM

    Former US Open Champion Timothy Taylor presents weapons for Black against the hugely popular Spanish Opening, with a repertoire based on the Modern Steinitz Defence. This has justifiably earned a reputation as an important alternative to the main lines, and it's easy to see its appeal. The Modern Steinitz can lead to razor-sharp positions, such as in the Siesta Variation, where one slip by either player could prove to be fatal. But a major attraction of the Modern Steinitz is its flexibility, and Black can also choose to play in a more positional manner.

    Fighting the French
    A New Concept
    Catalog Code: B0074EU

    Nowadays the French Defence 1...e6 is one of the most popular openings in response to 1.e4. I'd like to suggest a new concept of combating it. White plays 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 and then deploys his pieces according to the scheme Ngf3, Bd3, c3, 0-0, against almost anything that Black may play. This will usually lead to exchanges in the centre and the appearance of an isolated queen's pawn for White.

    Grandmaster Preparation
    Catalog Code: B0095IS

    In this remarkable book, Soviet grandmaster Lev Polugayevsky, one of the world's leading players over the past two decades, describes his highly personal approach to chess, which is based on meticulous practice. In the opening, he is constantly striving to surprise his opponents, and this has led to his developing one of the sharpest lines in the Sicilian Defence, which has rightly become known as the Polugayevsky Variation.

    A Powerful Opening Repertoire Against Annoying Black Sidelines

    This manual fills a big gap in chess literature. After 1.d4, probably the most widely played opening move in the world, Black can avoid main line theory by deviating into a whole variety of irritating unorthodox sidelines. White players often stumble into unknown and dangerous territory where their tricky opponent awaits them, fully prepared.

    The Sniper
    Play ...g6, ....Bg7 and ...c5!
    Catalog Code: B0328EM

    The Sniper is a dynamic and universal opening weapon for Black which can be used against all mainline openings. Black's system of development with ...g6 and ...Bg7 initially allows White to occupy the centre but, in true hypermodern style, Black strikes back immediately with ...c5. The Sniper can lead to original or barely-known positions in which Black can strive for the initiative. It's also rich in move-order possibilities, with potential transpositions into Sicilian, King's Indian or Benko-type positions.

It was a particular favourite for Garry Kasparov, who invigorated it with a number of key discoveries to make it an opening to be feared throughout the chess world. In this book, Yelena Dembo takes a modern-day look at the Scotch Game.

White must decide whether to grab the pawn and try to hold on, or to choose a more aggressive approach. Either way, Black generally succeeds in his aim of unbalancing the position from a very early stage.
