      Kasparov vs. Karpov - 1975-1985
      Catalog Code: SWB0138EM

      This volume concentrates on the first two of those matches. The epic 1984/85 contest which was lasted six months before being controversially halted "without result" by the then President of FIDE Florencio Campomanes. The 1985 match when Kasparov brilliantly won the final game to take the title and become - at the age of 22 - the youngest ever world champion. Great chess contests have often had resonances extending beyond the 64 squares. The Fischer v Spassky match was played during the Cold War with both champions being perceived as the finest products of their respective ideologies.

      Korchoi and Karpov
      Catalog Code: SWB0136EM

      This book, the fifth in Garry Kasparov's magnificent history of the World Chess Championship, catalogues the "post-Fischer" period in the 1970's and early 1980's. This period was dominated by Anatoly Karpov (world champion from 1975-1985) and his three-time challenger, Viktor Korchnoi. Anatoly Karpov gained the right to challenge Bobby Fischer for the world title by winning through the Candidates series in 1974. As is well known, Fischer refused to defend the title and in 1975 Karpov became champion by default. Although he did not have to contest a Championship match to gain the title, Karpov proved that he was a worthy champion by winning virtually every major tournament over the next decade.

      ENDGAME TACTICS is an affordable guide that reduces the psychological burden of endgame instruction by showing that endgames are actually quite enjoyable because of the tactics! There is no substitute for hard work in getting better at chess, but the fact of the matter is that we always work harder at something we love. By enjoying the entertainment of real life endgame tactics, and (at least for the moment) forgetting about theoretical positions that seem distant from everyday practice, the amateur player learns to love the endgame.

Of course the insides of these books are even more important, and Flear is an expert in pointing out the highlights!

      SHOPWORN - Encyclopedia of Chess Endings I - Pawn Endings
      Catalog Code: SWB0009ECO

      At the beginning of the 1980s, the Chess Informant publishing house started one of the greatest publishing ventures in chess history. In 1982 the first volume of Encyclopedia of Chess endgames was published (Pawn endgames). Another 4 volumes swiftly follows, in total containing over 9.000 endgame examples! This is the most comprehensive reference work on the endgame and, of course, it's no coincidence that EVERY new book on the endgame refers to it. The contributors of the first edition were: (editorial board) GM Aleksandar Matanovic and a large number of eminent contributors: multiple WCC and expert in the endgame Botvinnik Mikail, expert in the endgame Averbakh Yuri, Huebner Robert, Hort Vlastimil, Miles Anthony, Minev Nikola, Parma Bruno, Uhlmann Wolfgang and Unzicker Wolfgang. These names alone are sufficient to assess the true value of this book. The second edition is not only reprinted but has been considerably revised: about 300 examples have been added from modern practice. Also, some examples that contained errors or omissions have been corrected. Because of its simplicity and systematic approach the book is useful for advanced players and for those who want to become familiar with the basics of endgames. It's especially interesting for coaches. The examples are given in Chess Informant's system and can be easily found. All the examples are annotated according to Chess Informant's system. In the future we expect the second edition of Rook endgames to be published, so that readers will be able to get all 5 volumes of this famous work.

Originally a favourite among club players, in recent years the Trompowsky has been transformed into a powerful weapon even at grandmaster level. It particularly appeals to bold, ambitious players and leads to positions which are rich in possibilities for both sides. Using illustrative games and drawing on his own experience with the opening, Lakdawala provides a repertoire for White, covers 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 the Trompowsky Attack.

      In this book Ivan Sokolov presents a set of practical tools that will help you to master the art of sacrifice.

Ivan Sokolov has written an entertaining and instructive guide, packed with useful advice and lots of practical examples.
