    Soviet Chess
    Catalog Code: B0104IS

    This seems to be regarded as the West's answer to ''The Soviet School of Chess'' by Alexander Kotov ISBN 4871878198 who asserts superiority in the Soviet playing style. However, those who say that are mistaken. This book by a New Zealander who emigrated to England because of the greater opportunities to play chess there, fully concurs with Kotov that the Soviet players were the best in the world.

    A Modern Guide to a Fascinating Chess Opening

    The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit is a dangerous attacking opening which has amassed a cult following amongst club players, a loyal band of supporters like no other in chess.
