    Catalog Code: B0081EU

    Publisher: Chess Stars Author: Alexander Delchev Year of Publication: 2012 Pages: 212 Notation Type: Figurine (FAN) Book Description Many players find that facing the ultra-solid Slav is like banging your head against a brick wall.

There is one section on each of 2...dc and 2...d4, before 4 chapters on the various Slav and Semi-Slav structures and 2 on an anti-Queen's Gambit Declined approach. In short this provides: A tried and tested repertoire against some of the most common and most solid black lines, presented by an established GM author An emphasis on understanding the themes and key ideas rather than a maze of complex variations Up to date game references and analysis that will stand the test of time About the Author(s) Alexander Delchev is European Grand Prix winner in 2004.

    Modern Stonewall Dutch
    Catalog Code: B0144IS

    Publisher: ISHI Press Author: Eric SchillerYear of Publication: 2012 (Reprint) Pages: 160Notation Type: Algebraic (AN) Book Description At the time of the first edition, this opening was just becoming popular in Grandmaster chess. It soon became a hot item and for this edition we had over 20,000 games in our database. Champions of the defense include Grandmasters Agdestein, Dolmatov, Gleizerov (more than 100 games!), Glek, Karlsson, Moskalenko, Nikolic, Ulibin, and Vaisser. The theory is now pretty well established. I recommend that you start by studying the Overview below and looking at the games cited in the next paragraphs. I have concentrated on the lines most frequently seen in high level games. The opening is so absurdly transpositional that there is no way to organize it exhaustively. The most important thing is to note where the pieces usually land. About the Author(s) Eric Schiller (born March 20, 1955 in New York City) is an American chess player, trainer, arbiter and one of the most prolific authors of books on chess in the 20th century. In 1974, Schiller was the Illinois Junior Champion. Schiller played for the University of Chicago team several times at the Pan American Intercollegiate Team Chess Championship. He was an organizer of the Hawaii International chess festivals 1994-98 including 1998 US Open California Champion 1995. Later that year, he appeared as a chess adviser for the music group Phish on some of the stops for their ''Chess Tour'' where they played an ongoing game of two chess moves per tour stop and some ''band vs. audience'' partial games as part of their stage performance. Schiller was an arbiter at several notable games and championships including the FIDE World Chess Championship 2000. While Vladimir Kramnik and Garry Kasparov opted not to participate in the event, they had both endorsed Schiller for this sensitive role during the planning stages. As of April 2009, Schiller has a FIDE rating of 2166. He is also an International Arbiter and International Trainer. Schiller's expertise and publications in the Flohr-Zaitsev Variation made him a sought-after expert when Gary Kasparov used that opening at the second game at the World Chess Championship 1990.
