    Pages: 376
    Notation Type: Figurine (FAN)


    Book Description

    In chess, sacrificing material is the most dramatic way to try to seize the advantage.

Such sacrifices are usually a mystery to average players, but acclaimed author and chess grandmaster Mihai Suba explains the secrets of this technique in his characteristically bold and humorous style.

    About the Author(s)

    Mihai Suba is a Romanian grandmaster whose previous book, Dynamic Chess Strategy, was highly acclaimed by the critics and won the BCF Book of the Year prize.

    Counter-Gambits

    Our Price: $8.95


    Publisher: Dover
    Author: T. D. Harding
    Year of Publication: 2001

    Pages: 208
    Notation Type: Algebraic (AN)


    Book Description

    As noted British chess author T. D. Harding explains in the preface to Counter Gambits: Black to Play and Win, the aim of this book is to show you how to win games with Black. The method? Calculated aggression, right from move one! To offset the distinct advantage White is thought to have because it moves first, Black can engage in dynamic counterplay to avoid those openings that give White the opportunity of early exchanges.

    Following a brief explanation of symbols, this excellent guide covers such topics as dynamic counterplay, counter-gambits in open games, Black sacrifices in the half-open games, counters to the Queen's Gambit, Indian counter-gambits, and an index to openings and variations.

    Seventy-seven games, including ten new to this edition, are fully annotated, while more are found in the theoretical notes, with commentary. Among the counter-gambits used in the quest for dynamic counterplay are the Budapest, Blumenfeld, Falkbeer, and Latvian — all illustrated in great detail. A new update "Update 2001," written especially for this edition, examines developments in the field since this book was first published in the 1970s.

    Players at all skill levels — beginner to advanced — are sure to benefit from this expert analysis of gambits and counter-gambits.
