    The Complete French Advance
    The Most Uncompromising Way to Attack the French Defence
    Catalog Code: B0189NIC

    Grandmaster Evgeny Sveshnikov has played the Advance Variation in countless games with excellent results and is, as former World Champion Anatoly Karpov puts it, ‘the world expert' in this variation. Together with his son, International Master Vladimir Sveshnikov, he has thoroughly updated and expanded his earlier investigations that he presented in his first book on the French Advance in 2003.The Sveshnikovs know that when you are teaching new patterns it is much more productive to use illustrative games than to show stand-alone, concrete variations. That is why they present many annotated grandmaster games in which they clearly explain the ideas and plans for both sides.

    The King is a Powerful Piece!
    Catalog Code: B0131EU

    Cowering in the middlegame, towering in the endgame: chess theory teaches that the king needs protection from enemy pieces until the ending, when finally it can come out from hiding to decisive effect. But what if the king can take care of itself, and even march out to battle with its army? FIDE Master and coach Tigran Gyozalyan fills a gap in the chess literature with the first systematic exploration of the king's role and capabilities in the opening and the middlegame.

    The Sicilian - Thematic Sacrifices and Attacks
    Catalog Code: B0117OB

    Each opening has its own specific features and strategies that need to be explored. In the variations of the Sicilian Defense, White often counts on material sacrifices for getting a short of long term initiative that has a fair chance to lead to a decisive attach. These typical sacrifices are the main topic of this work.

    The Elshad System
    Catalog Code: B0132EU

    You have limited time to devote to chess study, and most of that goes to reviewing your openings to move 25, with all their sidelines. Sound familiar? Here's a solution: surprise your opponent in the first four moves with The Elshad System! In a groundbreaking survey of this emerging counterattack, FM Igor Nemtsev proposes a shocking approach to the closed openings featuring an early ..h7-h6 and ..g7-g5

    The Closed Sicilian - Move by Move
    Catalog Code: B0456EM

    The opponent who answers 1 e4 with an emphatic 1...c5 (The Sicilian Defence) is often looking for a fight. Such players can be highly theoretically prepared and itching to launch into their own pet variations after White has opted for the main lines with an early d2-d4. The Closed Sicilian is an ideal antidote to such aggression. In the Closed Sicilian an awareness of the strategies and plans is far more important than the simple memorising of variations. White's play is logical and the basic ideas are simple to master. However, do not be fooled into thinking the opening is without venom. The deliberate and slow burning attack that White often builds up has resulted in numerous fine attacking victories.

    First Steps - The Modern
    Catalog Code: B0455EM

    The Modern Defense is an important opening that can be played by Black against absolutely any White opening system. It is an ambitious, counterattacking weapon, favored by dynamic players. White is initially allowed to occupy the centre but Black plans to undermine this structure in the middle game with well-timed blows from the pieces and pawns. If Black gets it right then the white centre can be dramatically swept away. However, when it goes wrong, Black can be overrun.
