Bronstein was one of the most creative geniuses the chess world has ever seen, and he left a legacy of wonderful games. In this book, FIDE Master Steve Giddins selects and examines his favourite Bronstein games, brings light to some games which were previously unpublished, and shows us how we can all learn and improve our chess by studying Bronstein’s play.

    Whenever any grandmaster of chess is asked the question “Which chess book helped you the most” or “To what book do you most attribute your success”, the answer is almost always the same. What is it that makes this book so much better than the others? Is it the deep analysis, the explanation of the ideas or is it the personality of the author himself in his exuberant explanations of how the struggle creates art.

    Bobby Fischer: My 60 Memorable Games - RUSSIAN EDITION
    With Introductions to the Games by International Grandmaster Larry Evans
    Catalog Code: B0282IS

    This is the infamous translation into Russian of the famous work by Bobby Fischer “My 60 Memorable Games”. This translation is famous because it was denounced vehemently by Bobby Fischer in his radio broadcasts because this translation was not authorized by him. However, he even more vehemently objected to the revision by the English publisher Batsford, as he had not given them permission to reprint his work even though they had a contractual right to reprint his work by virtue of an agreement they had with the original publisher, Simon and Schuster. To make matters much worse, the Batsford edition translated all the moves from Descriptive Notation as in P-K4 into Algebraic Notation as in e4. Batsford hired English Grandmaster Nunn to go through the book and correct any mistakes in Fischer's analysis. Unfortunately, in the course of “correcting” Fischer's “mistakes”, the English grandmaster made mistakes of his own, because one “correction” required an illegal move, as the piece was pinned, as otherwise the king would have been in check. So, in reality the correction was wrong and the original note by Fischer was correct.

    The Chess Tactics Detection Workbook
    Catalog Code: B0401EM

    This workbook offers a unique framework to study chess tactics independent of themes, difficulty and—most importantly—even the existence of an actual tactic in a given position. Analyzing carefully selected games, from beginner level through to club and tournament level, the reader assumes the role of a tactics detective, checking for mistakes and missed opportunities by both sides without the help of a chess engine. This training method resembles live play far more realistically than solving puzzles, because each move has to be analyzed with respect to tactical possibilities—whether they exist or not.

In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala examines all the important variations after 1...b6. Using illustrative games, he explains the main positional and tactical ideas for both sides, provides answers to all the key questions and tells you everything you need to know about successfully playing 1...b6.

    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.
