    The Sicilian Sveshnikov - Move by Move
    Catalog Code: B0443EM

    The Sveshnikov is a very important variation of the Sicilian Defence. One of the Sveshnikov's main attractions is that it provides a battleground for one of the key conflicts in chess: structure versus activity. Black sacrifices structure in return for active piece play – a dynamic that regularly leads to sharp and complex positions, rich in strategic and tactical possibilities. In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala invites the reader to join him in studying the Sveshnikov Sicilian.

    The Zaitsev System
    Fresh Ideas and New Weapons for Black in the Ruy Lopez
    Catalog Code: B0179NIC

    The Zaitsev System is one of the most dynamic setups for Black in the ever popular Ruy Lopez chess opening. When Alexey Kuzmin joined the coaching staff of World Champion Anatoly Karpov in the 1980s he started analysing the Zaitsev System, and later continued his investigations as a second of Alexander Morozevich. For this book he has updated and improved his analysis, and found countless innovations that change the assessments of many lines.

    The Tactician's Handbook
    Catalog Code: B0101RE

    In the late 1990s, five books, each dedicated to a unique tactical theme, and each with approximately 100 pages, were published by the late Russian correspondence master Victor Charushin. All seven titles were then combined into one comprehensive volume - The Tactician's Handbook. To create this book, German grandmaster Karsten Müller has carefully reviewed and then selected the material he thought most enlightening. Then instructive exercises were added. All the analysis has been checked by the silicon monster, while Charushin’s notes and comments were revised where necessary.

    Najdorf x Najdorf
    Catalog Code: B0100RE

    Among major chess figures of the 20th century, few stand out more than Miguel Najdorf. In this biography, Najdorf’s daughter Liliana paints an intimate portrait of her larger-than life father. She writes about him, warts and all, showing us her father as a man both greatly talented and deeply flawed, a man at once loving and rage-prone, noble and petty, generous and selfish, jovial but despotic, earthy but vain, exuberant yet deeply sad.
