    CLEARANCE - Nimzovich Attack: Norfolk Gambits

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    This is Volume 1 in the author's new series Chess Openings For Hustlers. ''You will find similar lines of attack and similar combination situations in several different lines. These can be either very useful (if you take the time to learn them) or very treacherous. The one thing the Norfolk Gambit should not do is bore you''-author. ''Be warned: If you are a `bean counter' obsessed with saving pawns for an extended end-game, do not play these gambits! However, if you are willing to commit to an attack which will decimate the 'bean counters' of the chess world, this book is for you''- Phillip A. York. Learn More
  6. CLEARANCE - King's Indian Defense: Yugoslav Variation 6 ...c5

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

    Regular Price: $9.95

    Special Price $2.00

    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. Learn More
  7. CLEARANCE - Masterpieces of Attack: GM Marcel Sisniega Campbell

    CLEARANCE - Masterpieces of Attack: GM Marcel Sisniega Campbell

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    This book focuses on one of the strongest Mexican players ever. 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. Learn More

  9. CLEARANCE - Winning with the English Opening

    CLEARANCE - Winning with the English Opening

    Regular Price: $9.95

    Special Price $2.00

    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.

  11. CLEARANCE - The Fighting Fajarowicz

    CLEARANCE - The Fighting Fajarowicz

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    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.

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    Black defends his King's pawn before proceding with similar play as in the Greco Counter-Gambit.

  17. CLEARANCE - The Trompowsky Attack

    CLEARANCE - The Trompowsky Attack

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    One of the most dynamic and attacking of all chess openings, the search for new ideas in the Trompowsky has gone beyond the rare and bizarre into the realm of the unorthodox and even bizarre. Somewhere in between lies a widely misunderstood and often mishandled device known as the Trompowsky Attack. Still a relatively young and evolving opening, this really took off in the 1980's and early 90's. This dynamic, attacking system has become a staple in the repertoires of many GM's. Of particular note, England's Julian Hodgson is often credited as the leading innovator of new, fresh Trompowsky ideas Learn More
  18. CLEARANCE - Rubinstein Complex of the Nimzo-Indian

    CLEARANCE - Rubinstein Complex of the Nimzo-Indian

    Regular Price: $9.95

    Special Price $2.00

    The Nimzo-Indian Defense has been the most enduring and popular contribution to the theory of chess openings by iconoclast and trailblazer Aaron Nimzowitsch. The moves 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 comprise the jumping-off point for the Nimzo-Indian Defense. Akiba Rubinstein, a classicist only four years older than Nimzowistch, formulated the response 4. e3, which starts the Rubinstein Complex. He often intended to continue Nge2, planning to recapture on e3 with the Knight. Learn More
  19. CLEARANCE - Grand Prix Attack

    CLEARANCE - Grand Prix Attack

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    When faced with the Sicilian Defense, you have to make the choice to either wade through a maze of variations in the main line or diverge early into a relatively lesser known system. The early advance of white's f-pawn fits this objective perfectly. White gains more space in the center and kingside with 2.f4, forming the basis for lasting pressure and often leading to violent attacks against the black kingside. After 1.e4 c5 2.f4, this variation fell out of fashion int he early 90's due to 2..d5. But take heart! Smith and Hall show that this variation still has some venom! Learn More
  20. CLEARANCE - My Love Affair with Tchigorin

    CLEARANCE - My Love Affair with Tchigorin

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    By one of America's best players of the 1930's-40's and a world renown ''Romantic''. His pre-game comments and annotation of all games will delight you. The long introduction tells of how Santasiere is going to share the joys of one of the greatest chess artists of all time with us. He then encourages us to play romantic, fighting chess like Tchigorin, instead of unoriginal chess. This book could certainly be recommended for the Romantic chess player. Learn More
  21. CLEARANCE - The Catalan

    CLEARANCE - The Catalan

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    The Catalan Opening is currently in the repertoire of most all of the world's elite players. It has even been played at the World Championship level many times! This is largely because it combines strategic pressure with possibilities for a very sharp, complicated tactical struggle. This is perfect for those who insist on decisive chess. However, there are also some quieter, more solid lines. The Catalan combines the Queen's Gambit pawn duo(d4 and c4) with the hypermodern fianchettoed KB as with 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.g3 or 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3. From g2, the KB strikes through the center squares e4 and d5 and beyond to c6, b7, and a8, applying pressure to Black's Queenside. Another important advantage of the Catalan is that it can be used to side step popular Black defenses such as the Nimzo-Indian and Queen's-Indian. It can also be reached by transpositions from many different move orders. This is very good against strong opposition! Learn More

  23. CLEARANCE - American Chess Art

    CLEARANCE - American Chess Art

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    There is no longer any excuse for study enthusiasts familiar with the contemporary scene to remain uninformed, as I admit to have been myself, about the development of composition on the other side of the Atlantic. All is now revealed by the man most competent to do so. Walter Korn, for many years the leading American endgame columnist, traces the evolution of the endgame study. Walter Korn writes with feeling. He shares the suffering and elation of those he writes about. He has been through it all himself and his descriptive writing stems from a deep love of his subject and of the work of his compatriots. A warm hearted book.'' - an excerpt from a review by C.M. Bent in the British Chess Magazine. Learn More

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    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 Lisitsin Gambit is a bold, even savage attack against the Dutch. It in no way refutes the Dutch, but it places black on a tight rope, a rope the unwary may easily slip off to their doom on. Further the gambit is much easier to learn than the rest of the lines white may play against the Dutch.'' - US National Master Stephen Gordon. The Lisitsin Gambit, as well illustrated here, is a very good choice for the attacking player! Learn More
