    Understanding the Spanish

This book provides a complete course in helping the reader to understand those themes. Learn More

General themes are clearly presented within the context of illustrative games…The result is a book that covers a broad swath of material in a modest number of pages. I’m sure that you will be well-rewarded for its study, and come out with a useful new weapon in your chess arsenal.'' From International Master John Watson's Foreword Learn More

    Regular Price: $22.95

    Special Price $11.48

    SHOPWORN - The Liberated Bishop Defence

    Regular Price: $28.95

    Special Price $11.58

    Play the Catalan Volume 2 - Closed Variation

    $11.95

Bb4+ and 4... c6), and a group of variations where the Catalan Opening is obtained from the Queen's Gambit after 1 d4 d5 2 c4 e6 followed by 3 Nf3 Nf6 4 g3, or 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 g3, or 3 g3. Learn More
