      Our Price: $25.95
      Paul Keres. The theory of chess openings. In two books. Open debuts. Tallinn Estonian state. ed. 1949, 1952. 288 p. Before applying the novelty in the opening, make sure you did not write about it. Keres, half a century ago! In depth study, this work has no equal. Materials offered in the book are systematic sampling, and of course, a critical treatment of the vast material that the theory and practice of chess found mostly in the last half century, and which, taken together, form what is generally accepted to call "opening theory." 48).

    7. The Four Knights Game

      The Four Knights Game

      Our Price: $23.95

      The Four Knights variation is one of the oldest chess openings, dating back to the 16th century. In recent years it has been injected with numerous fresh ideas and has shaken off the reputation of being a peaceful choice. White has quite a few ways to create tension and play for the attack.

    11. 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.

      Play The Ponziani

      Our Price: $27.95
      The Ponziani Opening enjoys a long history, but for some unknown reason it has been neglected in recent times. Don't be fooled by its apparently harmless reputation: the Ponziani is full of tricks and catches many unsuspecting opponents by surprise. It's also a perfect weapon for those who don't fancy learning the masses of theory associated with more high-profile openings like the Ruy Lopez. Learn More

      EBOOK - Italian Game and Evan's Gambit

      Our Price: $19.95

      Out of stock

      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.
