  1. An Aggressive Opening Repertoire for the Club Player

    An Aggressive Opening Repertoire for the Club Player

    Our Price: $25.95
    Nikolai Kalinichenko, an international grandmaster in correspondence player and author of some 40 chess titles, presents here a complete and up-to-date opening repertoire. It is intended for players of attacking style, or for use when the competitive situation demands an aggressive approach. The repertoire is based on 1. e4 as White and the Sicilian Dragon and Leningrad Dutch as Black. Suggestions are also offered against all the opponent's main alternatives. Learn More
  2. The Modern Vienna Game

    The Modern Vienna Game

    Our Price: $31.95
    The Vienna set-up aims for very aggressive play, which often includes sacrifices. But White prefers to be on the safe side, without burning all the bridges and to try to justify his actions from the point of view of positional play as well. At first, he deploys his minor pieces to active positions, then he advances the thematic move f4, castles (usually on the kingside) and begins an attack only after all this. Despite the fact that the move 2.Nc3 has been played for more than a hundred years, there has not been defined a clear-cut scheme for playing this set-up. Learn More
  3. Grandmaster Repertoire - 1. e4 vs. The French, Caro-Kann & Philidor

    Grandmaster Repertoire - 1. e4 vs. The French, Caro-Kann & Philidor

    Volume One covers the French, Caro-Kann and Philidor.

  15. Attack with the Boden-Kieseritzky-Morphy Gambit

    Attack with the Boden-Kieseritzky-Morphy Gambit

    Our Price: $15.95
    The Boden-Kieseritzky-Morphy Gambit is lightly regarded and is never played by grandmasters, but it has one of the best records for White of any opening played below the master level. It scores a phenomenal 62% in all games in the chess databases. This book examines an opening which can be quite useful for beginners and amateur chess players. The gambit we will examine (1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6 3.Nf3!? or 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4!?) has been used by Paul Morphy among other strong players. In my view it is as good a gambit as most others.

    The Ponziani Opening enjoys a long history, but for some unknown reason it has been neglected in recent times.

    The Italian Game (sometimes referred to as the Giuoco Piano) is one of the oldest openings around, and also one of the first lines a player learns when he or she is introduced to chess. It leads to play that is easy to understand: both sides develop their pieces logically and begin attacks on the opposing kings. The Italian Game gives both White and Black the opportunity to play either aggressively and in gambit fashion, or in a restrained and positional manner. One of White's most exciting and attacking options is the legendary Evans Gambit, which has been brought back into the limelight in this modern era by such uncompromising players as World Champion Garry Kasparov, Alexander Morozevich,and England's Nigel Short.
