      SHOPWORN - Rapid Chess Improvement
      Catalog Code: SWB0144EM

      The two-part article, "400 Points in 400 Days" by Michael de la Maza was not only wildly popular when it appeared in the Skittles Room at early last year, but its popularity also continued unabated even when it was retired to the Archives. Now the dozen and a half or so pages that made up "400 Points" has been transformed into a full-blown 126-page book published by Everyman Chess: "Rapid Chess Improvement: A Study Plan for Adult Players".

Grandmaster James Plaskett, a player of distinguished tactical ability, has carefully assembled an abundance of tactical chess puzzles to test players of all levels.

      SHOPWORN - Creative Chess
      Catalog Code: SWB0078EM

      Most chess books aim to guide and instruct by offering principles, rules, schemes and theories. Creative Chess, on the other hand, has a quite different and original approach. It firmly maintains that every chessplayer, whether amateur or master, is capable of creating something new in chess. After a discussion of the characteristics and processes of creativity, 10 central concepts, such as unusual positioning and functioning of pieces, alertness to subtle differences, absurd moves, and flexibility, are presented with a wealth of truly amazing examples to encourage the reader to broaden the horizons of his chess thinking.

      SHOPWORN - Fianchetto Grunfeld
      Catalog Code: SWB0176EM

      By choosing the Fianchetto System against the Grunfeld, White aims to stifle Black's normal piece play. White avoids presenting Black with a target and instead looks to probe Black's sensitive queenside. White's strategy has been used to good effect by Karpov and Kasparov, reason enough to adopt it in one's own games. This new title offers the first complete coverage of this important chess opening and is ideal for King's Indian players looking for a way to meet the Fianchetto. It also includes up-to-the-minute theory from two top-class theoreticians. Grandmaster Adrian Mikhalchishin is a well-known Ukrainian writer and player, and arguably the worlds' leading expert on the Fianchetto Grunfeld. Alexander Belyavsky is also a Ukrainian grandmaster, who became World Junior Champion in 1973 and won the USSR Championship on many occasions. He has competed regularly and successfully in countless super-grandmaster events.

      SHOPWORN - Queen's Gambit Accepted
      Catalog Code: SWB0178EM

      The Queen's Gambit Accepted is one of the oldest and most dependable ways for Black to meet White's queen's pawn opening. It leads to dynamic positions with free piece play in which the more enterprising player is likely to prevail. When Nigel Short used the QGA in his match with Anatoly Karpov in 1992, the opening became highly fashionable and it currently features prominently in the repertoires of grandmasters Joel Lautier and Matthew Sadler, among many others. This book provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the Queen's Gambit Accepted available. With an emphasis on currently fashionable lines that readers are likely to encounter in their own games, it provides everything you need to know to play the opening with White or Black. Iakov Neishtadt is an international master at correspondence chess and author of numerous books, including Winning Quickly with White and Winning Quickly with Black.
