    CLEARANCE - Sam Loyd: His Story and Best Problems
    Catalog Code: CB0107CD

    Sam loyd is widely considered to be the finest chess composer that ever lived, often authorizing problems with witty themes that would challenge even the strongest of players. What isn't so well known is that he was also one of the best chess players in the U.S.,despite having a playing style that was highly flawed. Like his problems, Sam would often try to create fantastic combinations over the board during his games, rather than simplifying and going for the win. This book, edited by Grandmaster Andrew Soltis, presents 58 of Sam Loyd's problems for your consideration. In addition to the puzzles, the author extensively discusses the man behind the puzzles.

The most famous of chess openings leads to a deep strategic maneuvering battle. Experienced GM's seem almost clairvoyant when handling the positions. It is not a sixth sense, but a knowledge of the typical maneuvers and themes that enable them to have their pieces where they need them, when they need them. This book provides a complete course in helping the reader to understand those themes.

    CLEARANCE - How to Play the Torre Attack - Second, Thoroughly Revised Edition
    Catalog Code: CB0075CD

    White plays 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 followed by Bg5. The Torre Attack is a very flexible opening employed by white which involves quick development and fight for control of the e4 square. A standard setup would involve placing the queen's knight on d2, light-squared bishop to d3, king's rook to e1 after a quick castling, and pawn to e3 or e4. However, there is a flexibility that allows for many different setups, depending on the strategic path that the white player wishes to employ and black's setup. This flexible, dynamic system has been employed by virtually every top GM at some point in their career, even at the World Championship match level. Schiller shows why this opening system should be part of every player's repertoire.

    Improve Your Chess Now
    Catalog Code: B0097EM

    In an important and strikingly original self-improvement manual, Jonathan Tisdall draws upon many years of experience as both player and trainer to explain a new approach to chess thinking. His ideas will be especially welcomed by players frustrated with the mechanical and unnatural 'candidate moves' and 'tree of analysis' approach advocated by many previous texts. Tisdall's innovative ideas extend to the psychological aspects of chess, and in particular the defence of bad positions. The final sections of the book provide an armoury of mating patterns to be absorbed into the reader's subconscious. As proof of the effectiveness of his methods, in the course of writing this book, and by using the very techniques he recommends here, Tisdall made a quantum leap in playing strength and achieved his life-long ambition of gaining the prestigious grandmaster title.

    CLEARANCE - Castling to Win
    Catalog Code: B0105BT

    The king is the most valuable piece on the chessboard, yet many players - especially at club level - give little thought to where His Majesty should reside. This wide-ranging survey explains the dangers with leaving the King in the center, and the possible drawbacks to castling too early or on the wrong side. Castling can be an attacking move, as shown in many stunning examples. An expected castling is often devastating and can often determine the game on the spot. This practical manual includes entertaining examples of late castling and castling in studies.

    CLEARANCE - King's Indian Defense: Yugoslav Variation 6 ...c5
    Catalog Code: CB0029CD

    There is no reason that the variation 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 0-0 5.Nf3 d6 6.0-0 c5 fell out of fashion. Soltis proves this by giving you excellent analysis and strategy in this variation. He brings back a 1950's variation to surprise your opponents. This system has a bit of a Benoni feel to it by attacking white's center with 6..c5 instead of 6..e5. This should be called the Gligoric system since it was the veteran GM Svetozar Gligoric who first demonstrated Black's resources most successfully. This system is a dangerous surprise weapon in the King's Indian that can be employed at all levels.

Manuel Sisniega, respected and feared for his daring attacking chess, won many beautiful games in his active 20 year tournament career. Never afraid to play sharp gambit systems against strong opposition, he won many masterpieces through direct assault on the enemy king. Velasco annotates most of his best games, and shows that Sisniega is a player for attacking players to emulate.

    CLEARANCE - Winning with the English Opening
    Catalog Code: CB0076CD

    Essentially, Soltis advocates a 1 c4, 2 g3 sequence against virtually any set-up by Black. The rare exception is the response 2?d5 after either 1?e6 or 1?c6, when 3 b3 is recommended, although even here, the King?s Bishop does end up fianchettoed, but just a few moves later.The book maintains the same basic coverage as the second edition. It is divided into four sections: I ? c4 e5; II ? c4 c5; III ? c4 Nf6; and IV - c4, others. There are two basic systems presented in the book: The set-up credited to Botvinnik, with the KB fianchettoed, the QN on c3, pawns on c4, d3 and e4, and the KN on e2; and a variation of this, with the pawn on e3, with the d?pawn retaining the option of going to either d3 or d4, depending on circumstances.

    Accelerated Dragons
    Catalog Code: B0145EM

    Many players are attracted to the Dragon Sicilian, but are put off by the fierce mating attacks that White can launch. In the Accelerated Dragon, Black aims for an improved version, saving a move with his queen's pawn. If White tries to ignore the difference, Black's instant detonation of the centre will come as an unwelcome cold shower! The authors show that White's main reply, the Maroczy Bind, is not so fearsome as was once thought Black has many ways to break out, while quite often it is possible to manoeuvre around White's 'binding pawns' and show that they imprison White's pieces as much as they do Black's.
