    Beating the Grunfeld
    Since his surprise choice of the Grunfeld Defence in the 1986 World Championship match, Garry Kasparov has regularly adopted the Grunfeld in tournaments and matches around the world. Against Karpov, however, this opening has proved an unfortunate choice and Karpov has won more World Championship games against Kasparov in this opening than in any other.

    Winning with the Hypermodern
    Hypermodern chess strategy was the single most devastating innovation of the 20th century chess thought. Fueled by such towering figures as Aron Nimzowitsch and Richard Reti, hypermodern ideas forced their way into prominence and blazed the trail for the dynamic adoption by the Soviet chess school of defences such as the King's Indian and the Grunfeld. With both of these championed by Garry Kasparov, arguably the greatest player of all time, it is clear that hypermodern openings and defences are still setting the agenda in the 21st century.

    Transpo Tricks in Chess
    In chess, a transposition is a known position reached by a different move order than usual - a less obvious way of getting to somewhere you want to go, leading to confusion for your opponent. Every chess player has a number of them in his arsenal, and they are used most often in openings.

    1974 Chess Olympiad
    The Biennial Chess Olympiad is the official World Team Championship and rivals the individual World Championship as the premier event in the chess calendar. The 1974 Olympiad, which took place at Nice on the French Riviera, had a record entry of 74 national teams. The Soviet Union once again captured the gold medal, the USA, without Fischer, made their best result for eight years to win the bronze medal behind Yugoslavia in second place.

    This book covers the story of the Olympiad with 130 annotated games, nearly half of them annotated by Grandmasters, complete tables of team performances in both the preliminary and the final groups, tables of every individual result of every player and the results of all past Olympiads.

    Controversial Samisch King's Indian
    The Samisch variation is commonly recognized as being the sharpest way of meeting the popular King's Indian Defence, although in its modern use by White, one is just as likely to see positional queenside play as any deadly assault on the black king. In this innovative opening book, Grandmaster Chris War takes a look at its transformation over time.
