  2. Ponziani Opening

    Ponziani Opening

    Our Price: $4.95

    The Ponziani (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.c3)has been an opening that has been overlooked frequently through the years. However it was played quite frequently throughout the 80's in Master-level and above tournament play. White has many ways to challenge each variant of Black's setup. Harding shows that Black's game is not as easy as many Black theorists would want you to believe. Learn More

  4. Dynamic White Openings

    Dynamic White Openings

    Our Price: $4.95

    It's time to change your White opening or at least have a second one to diversify your opening system. No longer are the openings in the book called "Irregular" because GM's and IM's are playing them. Covered are the dynamic 1.b4!, the aggressive Grob's Attack 1.g4!, the surprisingly excellent Queen's Knight Attack 1.Nc3!, slow stuff 1.e3 and 1.d3 and 1.a3, & the disreputable 1.h4 & other white first moves.

  5. The Fighting Fajarowicz

    The Fighting Fajarowicz

    Our Price: $7.95

    The Budapest, 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5, is really a counterattack rather than a defense. It appeals to players who like to challenge White for the initiative early in the game. This particularly applies to the Fajarowicz Variation, 3.dxe4 Ne4, in which(by contrast with the 3..Ng4 main line of the Budapest) Black puts more emphasis on fighting for key squares than on seeking the early recapture of the pawn he has given up. This book contains 3 different sections: 1)Ideas for black to aim for and areas to avoid; 2)A 12 chapter Analysis section(including one with explanation on what to do if white avoids the Fajarowicz on move 3; and 3)A Complete Games section with well over 300 games ranging from unannotated to lightly annotated for you to study.

    Book Description

    As noted British chess author T. D. Harding explains in the preface to Counter Gambits: Black to Play and Win, the aim of this book is to show you how to win games with Black. The method? Calculated aggression, right from move one! To offset the distinct advantage White is thought to have because it moves first, Black can engage in dynamic counterplay to avoid those openings that give White the opportunity of early exchanges.

    Following a brief explanation of symbols, this excellent guide covers such topics as dynamic counterplay, counter-gambits in open games, Black sacrifices in the half-open games, counters to the Queen's Gambit, Indian counter-gambits, and an index to openings and variations.

    Seventy-seven games, including ten new to this edition, are fully annotated, while more are found in the theoretical notes, with commentary. Among the counter-gambits used in the quest for dynamic counterplay are the Budapest, Blumenfeld, Falkbeer, and Latvian — all illustrated in great detail. A new update "Update 2001," written especially for this edition, examines developments in the field since this book was first published in the 1970s.

    Players at all skill levels — beginner to advanced — are sure to benefit from this expert analysis of gambits and counter-gambits.
