      Openings for Amateurs
      Catalog Code: B0103EU

      Don’t have the time to study opening theory, or to figure out where you’re going wrong with your games? Are you looking for guidance on how to handle the opening so that you can get a playable middlegame? Openings for Amateurs is written with two kinds of chessplayers in mind: average “club” players who can’t afford to learn variations 30 moves deep; and scholastic players looking to take the next step in their chess development.

      Is it possible to learn how to attack your opponent’s king from a book? Guidelines and verbal explanations are fine, argues David Eggleston, but there is no substitute for the hard work of carefully analyzing the complex position that’s on the chessboard in front of you.

      The Nimzo-Indian and Other Defences
      Catalog Code: B0100EU

      "The final volume consists of five parts. In the first part we analyse some seldom played moves for Black. The second part of the book is devoted to the Dutch Defence. In the third part we deal with the different defences for Black after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4, besides 2...c5 and 2...e6. In the fourth part we analyse the Benoni Defence and the Benko Gambit. Finally, in the fifth part of the book, we deal with Black's most reliable opening - the Nimzo-Indian Defence. In this volume, just like in the previous two, we have emphasized on reliability and rationality in our choice of systems for White. For example, against the Dutch Defence we have preferred the move 2.Nc3, with which White reduces Black's possibilities considerably. Against the Nimzo-Indian Defence we analyse theRubinstein System - 4.e3, followed by Nge2, in which White's first task is to avoid compromising of his pawn-structure."

      The Most Flexible Sicilian
      Catalog Code: B0101EU

      This book is a follow up of The Safest Sicilian. It offers a repertoire based on 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6. This time It covers both the Taimanov and the Kan. The pawn structures are almost identical so many ideas work in both variations. At the same time the different move order offers subtleties which may turn decisive for the outcome of the opening battle. Delchev believes that the Sicilian players should know the full range of set-ups after 2...e6. That would allow to choose the most unpleasant system against any particular opponent.
