    CLEARANCE - Nimzovich Attack: Norfolk Gambits

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    This is Volume 1 in the author's new series Chess Openings For Hustlers. ''You will find similar lines of attack and similar combination situations in several different lines. These can be either very useful (if you take the time to learn them) or very treacherous. The one thing the Norfolk Gambit should not do is bore you''-author. ''Be warned: If you are a `bean counter' obsessed with saving pawns for an extended end-game, do not play these gambits! However, if you are willing to commit to an attack which will decimate the 'bean counters' of the chess world, this book is for you''- Phillip A. York. Learn More

    CLEARANCE - Beating the Sicilian Defense with the Short-Nunn Attack

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    Wanted: Opening system needed to combat the most popular defense to 1.e4. Must be sound, flexible, and aggressive. Experience against all Black formations essential. GM's Short and Nunn came forward in the late 1980's and early 1990's to give us one catch-all system. First it was proven successful against one Black setup, and then against another and another. Its successes were registered at the highest levels. Fischer played it against Spassky in the 1992 return match! Still the most popular system against the Najdorf today. Learn More

    CLEARANCE - Beating the King's Indian and Benoni Defense with 5. Bd3

    Regular Price: $9.95

    Special Price $2.00

    GM Soltis: ''Against the King's Indian Defense and the Benoni Group(all of them: Czech, Modern, etc..)there is a simple, relatively new, yet ambitious setup that can be played effectively against each member of the family...the key element here is the bishop on d3(5.Bd3!)''. This book also tells you how to play against the Old Indian and Modern defenses. Learn More

  11. CLEARANCE - The Goring Gambit Accepted and Declined

    CLEARANCE - The Goring Gambit Accepted and Declined

    Regular Price: $9.95

    Special Price $2.00

    The Goring Gambit is one of White's most dynamic choices after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6. With 3.d4! White immediately challenges Black's ''pawn anchor'' on e5 while prying open lines for rapid, aggressive development. After 3..exd4 White can, of course, opt for the Scotch Game with 3.Nxd4 - which is quite sound for White - but we recommend that you choose the gambit with 4.c3, daring Black to grab a pawn with 4..dxc3. If Black accepts, white will get a lead in development and many opportunities for a prolonged initiative. There is a line that modern theory favors black, but we show you how to avoid it. If your opponent is too scared to accept the gambit with 4..dxc3, then there are declining moves with 4..Nf6, 4..d5, and 4..d3. Against all these more sedate lines we will show how to keep Black under pressure. A number of top players have adopted the Goring gambit over time; among them are GM's Tal, Stein, Gufeld, Velimirovic, and Ljubojevic. FM Ken Smith, one of the authors, has been playing middle gambits(Danish, Goring, BDG, & Smith-Morra) all his 47-year chess career. Learn More
  12. CLEARANCE - Dynamic White Openings

    CLEARANCE - Dynamic White Openings

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    It's time to change your White opening or at least have a second one to diversify your opening system. No longer are the openings in the book called ''Irregular'' because GM's and IM's are playing them. Covered are the dynamic 1.b4!, the aggressive Grob's Attack 1.g4!, the surprisingly excellent Queen's Knight Attack 1.Nc3!, slow stuff 1.e3 and 1.d3 and 1.a3, & the disreputable 1.h4 & other white first moves. Learn More
  13. CLEARANCE - Winning with 1. e4

    CLEARANCE - Winning with 1. e4

    Regular Price: $9.95

    Special Price $2.00

    A complete opening system with White playing 1.e4. The author tells you what to play against each possible Black defense. His recommendations are not carved in stone so you can keep what you like and change the ones that do not appeal to you. If you play the ''peak-a-boo'' opening, you will want to change to the dynamic 1.e4! Start winning games! Learn More
  14. CLEARANCE - The Vienna Game and Gambit

    CLEARANCE - The Vienna Game and Gambit

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    This book covers the Vienna Game and Vienna Gambit along with variations that transpose into the King's Gambit(such as improvements for white in the Steinitz Variation). Force your opponent into lines that you know and are familiar with after 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3, with a quick f4 frequently following. This is certainly an excellent choice for the attacking player! Learn More
  15. CLEARANCE - Winning with 1. f4

    CLEARANCE - Winning with 1. f4

    Regular Price: $9.95

    Special Price $2.00

    With the Dutch Defense as Black having a revival at GM level, it is time for a rehabilitation of Bird's Opening 1.f4. The extra move White has makes a big difference. Soltis covers how White should play in: Part 1 :Black Doesn't Fianchetto His King's Bishop. Part 2: Black Plays Modern Systems Including ...g6. Part 3: From's Gambity(a hard gambit to meet - here is how GM's play against it). Part 4: Other Defenses Black May Play. Learn More
  16. CLEARANCE - The Catalan

    CLEARANCE - The Catalan

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    The Catalan Opening is currently in the repertoire of most all of the world's elite players. It has even been played at the World Championship level many times! This is largely because it combines strategic pressure with possibilities for a very sharp, complicated tactical struggle. This is perfect for those who insist on decisive chess. However, there are also some quieter, more solid lines. The Catalan combines the Queen's Gambit pawn duo(d4 and c4) with the hypermodern fianchettoed KB as with 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.g3 or 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3. From g2, the KB strikes through the center squares e4 and d5 and beyond to c6, b7, and a8, applying pressure to Black's Queenside. Another important advantage of the Catalan is that it can be used to side step popular Black defenses such as the Nimzo-Indian and Queen's-Indian. It can also be reached by transpositions from many different move orders. This is very good against strong opposition! Learn More
  17. CLEARANCE - The Baltic Defense to the Queen's Gambit

    CLEARANCE - The Baltic Defense to the Queen's Gambit

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    In the past many masters have tried to solve Black's problem of developing the Queen's Bishop after blocking it in by 2..e6(1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6). But there is another school that thinks Black should solve the Bishop problem first, with 2..Bf5. A number of them from the Baltic nations were GM Mikenas and GM Keres. The modern generation is lead by GM's Bagirov, Shirov, and Rausis. We believe books have overlooked 1.d4 d5 2.c4 Bf5 or 1.Nf3 d5 2.d4 Bf5 or 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Bf5. Learn More
  18. CLEARANCE - A Winning White Repertoire

    CLEARANCE - A Winning White Repertoire

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    The main system is the Torre Attack 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 or 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 followed by Bg5. Then you are taught how to meet the Nimzo-Indian, King's Indian, Pirc/Old Indian, Benoni, and Dutch Defenses. This opening is very solid and easy to learn and the non-professional players will find it very handy. However, it is a very powerful opening and has been employed by such chess superstars as Korchnoi, Kasparov, Timman, Petrosian, Bronstein, Yusupov, Keres, Smyslov, and Spassky! Most importantly, this book consists of more than just variations, but 100 deeply annotated complete games as well. Learn More

    CLEARANCE - Winning with the Leningrad Dutch 7...Qe8

    Regular Price: $9.95

    Special Price $2.00

    No matter what white plays, you are given a black winning answer. Many games of the strong GM Dutch defense expert Malaniuk are given. Also games by leading GM's such as Ivanchuk, Beliavsky, and Bareev are demonstrated. This book shows how to play one of the most dynamic, strategically rich defenses in chess. Learn More

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    GM Soltis: ''If white gets to attack in the Sicilian Defense anyway, why should he offer a pawn or two for the privilege? The answer is that black gets to counterplay in the Sicilian and his counterplay is usually as good as white's. That, in fact, is what makes the Sicilian popular. There are plenty of familiar Sicilian gambits(like the Smith Morra and Wing, which this book doesn't even cover). But in the last few years, a number of new ideas arising out of positional variations, have been discovered and found to pack a wallop for white''. Here are six new white gambits against the Sicilian that the reader will have to attempt to destroy black! Learn More

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    The Ponziani (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.c3)has been an opening that has been overlooked frequently through the years. However it was played quite frequently throughout the 80's in Master-level and above tournament play. White has many ways to challenge each variant of Black's setup. Harding shows that Black's game is not as easy as many Black theorists would want you to believe. Learn More
  28. CLEARANCE - Winning with the Benko Gambit

    CLEARANCE - Winning with the Benko Gambit

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    Smith & Hall: ''The Benko Gambit is a rare sort of opening: Black offers a pawn on the third move to snatch the initiative from White. The psychological effect is instantaneous. White, who thought he would control the opening with the initial tempo is immediately faced with vexing decisions. 'Do I take the pawn and try to keep it?'(Accepted); 'Do I take it for a little white but offer to return it later?' (Semi-Accepted); 'Or do I avoid the gambit altogether?' (Declined). 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 b5!. In any event we show that whichever course white adopts, black will obtain fluid counter-play. If white commits inaccuracies(even relatively slight ones), Black can quickly seize the initiative. By first studying our familiarization section the student new to the Benko will be given a good overview of all the main variations in the Benko Gambit. Next we present a thorough and up-to-date survey of all the major variations to show how Black can steer play into dynamic counter-play-oriented positions, which will provide exciting games and good practical winning chances. Bash 'em with the Benko!'' Learn More

    CLEARANCE - The Veresov Attack

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    The Veresov Attack is a vigorous opening system which offers a wealth of interesting strategic and tactical chances for white. It is interesting to note that it sort of resembles a sort of ''Queenside Ruy Lopez''. This often leads to rapid queenside castling with sharpened play. Alternately, white can simply continue to develop his kingside pieces followed by kingside castling. This ''dual castling'' motif of the Veresov can keep black guessing as to white's true intentions.

    There is no reason that the variation 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 0-0 5.Nf3 d6 6.0-0 c5 fell out of fashion. Soltis proves this by giving you excellent analysis and strategy in this variation. He brings back a 1950's variation to surprise your opponents. This system has a bit of a Benoni feel to it by attacking white's center with 6..c5 instead of 6..e5. This should be called the Gligoric system since it was the veteran GM Svetozar Gligoric who first demonstrated Black's resources most successfully. This system is a dangerous surprise weapon in the King's Indian that can be employed at all levels. Learn More
