    SHOPWORN - Mikhail Chigorin
    The Creative Genius
    Catalog Code: SWB0171NIC

    Mikhail Chigorin (1850-1908), the first great Russian chess master, belongs to that select group of exceptionally strong players who did not quite succeed in winning the world championship. He remains universally admired for his creative and courageous style of play. He would always play to win, not only by his famed dashing attacks but also by precise calculation of variations, purposeful maneuvering and exploitation of positional weaknesses, artful defense and refined endgame play. This book is a hugely expanded second edition of a book published in 1987.

    In this section we present a sneak preview from The Modern French by Dejan Antic and Branimir Maksimovic. Our reviewer Glenn Flear notices a growing influence of subtitles in books like Ivan Sokolov's The Strategic Nimzo-Indian, Larry Kaufman's The Kaufman Repertoire for Black & White, Alexander Delchev's The Modern Reti and Ruslan Scherbakov's the triangle system. Of course the insides of these books are even more important, and Flear is an expert in pointing out the highlights!

    SHOPWORN - The Blackmar Diemer Gambit
    A Modern Guide to a Fascinating Chess Opening
    Catalog Code: SWB0321EM

    The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit is a dangerous attacking opening which has amassed a cult following amongst club players, a loyal band of supporters like no other in chess. White sacrifices a pawn in return for a strong initiative which tests Black's defensive capabilities to the limit. Some experts have questioned its objective soundness, but there's no doubting its success and popularity over the board, where pressure and a ticking clock often means it's impossible to find the right defence.

    SHOPWORN - 1... b6 - Move by Move
    Catalog Code: SWB0408EM

    1...b6 is a dynamic defense which allows Black to steer the game into relatively unchartered territory, where White players are unable to relax and rely on their ‘opening book’ knowledge. A major attraction of 1...b6 is that it can be employed against all of White’s mainline openings, including 1 e4, 1 d4, 1 Nf3 and 1 c4. 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.
