      SHOPWORN - Open Ruy Lopez
      Catalog Code: SWB0110EM

      The Open Ruy Lopez (also known as the Open Spanish) has always been a popular choice at both club level and at grandmaster level, where it has withstood the test of time after decades of close scrutiny. It offers both sides the opportunity for a sharp clash of forces in which the better prepared player will often come out on top. It is therefore no surprise that fighting players such as Victor Korchnoi and Jan Timman have always used the Open Ruy Lopez as an important weapon in their armory.

      SHOPWORN - Closed Sicilian
      Catalog Code: SWB0233EM

      The Closed variation (1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 Nc6 3. g3) has always been regarded as an interesting and dynamic way to meet the aggressive Sicilian Defense. At the highest level, former World Champions Boris Spassky and Vassily Smyslov have employed it on a regular basis, while Vassily Ivanchuk has also used it as a surprise weapon. The Closed Sicilian is ideally suited to club and tournament players, as it does not require the memorising of reams of complicated variations; an understanding of typical themes being more important than theoretical knowledge.

      A New Adventure in an Old Chess Opening
      Catalog Code: SWB0108NIC

      The Four Knights variation is one of the oldest chess openings, dating back to the 16th century. In recent years it has been injected with numerous fresh ideas and has shaken off the reputation of being a peaceful choice. White has quite a few ways to create tension and play for the attack.

      Catalog Code: SWB0002EM

      The Modern Defence is a dynamic, ambitious and universal opening, one that can be used against virtually every system White can play. Black's provocative strategy is based upon allowing White to construct an imposing pawn centre in the anticipation that a well-timed strike will bring about its downfall.

      Hit the Nimzowitsch Variation with 6. d5!
      Catalog Code: SWB0141NIC

      The ultra-sharp pawn sacrifice 6.d5 has caused a revolution in the 4… Ba6 line of the Queen’s Indian Defence in recent years. The ingenious gambit was hotly debated at the highest level by players like Alexey Shirov, for White, and Peter Leko, for Black. At club level it became a dangerous weapon for attackers.

      A Powerful Opening Repertoire Against Annoying Black Sidelines
      Catalog Code: SWB0107NIC

      This manual fills a big gap in chess literature. After 1.d4, probably the most widely played opening move in the world, Black can avoid main line theory by deviating into a whole variety of irritating unorthodox sidelines. White players often stumble into unknown and dangerous territory where their tricky opponent awaits them, fully prepared.

Unsurprisingly, Alekhine's Defence has always been a favourite amongst uncompromising players such as Fischer and Alekhine himself, while more recently it's been utilised by the likes of Ivanchuk and Short.
