    Encyclopedia of Chess Combinations
    ECC4 is a completely revised and updated edition of one of the fundamental books about the art of combinational chess. In comparison to the third edition there are 292 more examples but in general about 1/3 of the previous edition is changed, not to mention again the different structure. The content represents the work of our Editorial Board of experienced grandmasters and international masters. It is always possible that some known combinations were missed; however, it should be rare example. Anyway, this is one of the reasons why different editions exist and future ones will follow.

    Formation Attacks
    As a Chess Master who has spent many years playing aggressive and attacking chess, I was quite dismayed during a recent visit to my local bookstore. I was in search of a book that covered an array of attacks against many Pawn formations in an organized fashion. Needless to say, my search came up empty. The books on attacking fell short in many ways. Many of the books were simply a small collection of attack games with no instruction about the art of attacking or about the skills required to become a great attacker.

    Publisher: Quality Chess
    Author: Mihai Suba
    Year of Publication: 2012 Pages: 376

    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.

    How to Calculate Chess Tactics
    Thinking methods are at the heart of the chess struggle, yet most players devote little conscious effort to improving their calculating ability. Much of the previous literature on the subject has presented idealized models that have limited relevance to the hurly-burly of practical chess, or else provide little more than ad hoc suggestions. Here, experienced trainer Valeri Beim strikes a balance by explaining how to use intuition and logic together to solve tactical problems in a methodical way. He also offers advice on when it is best to calculate 'like a machine', and when it is better to rely on intuitive assessment.

    >Sacrifices are an essential part of chess. Those who never consider sacrificing will miss countless opportunities and find that promising positions repeatedly slip away.

Rather than merely cataloguing the various possibilities and providing examples, LeMoir discusses the possible follow-ups to the sacrifices, the defensive options against them, and the positional factors that might suggest whether the sacrifice will be sound or unsound.
