  5. Starting Out - Alekhine Defence

    Starting Out - Alekhine Defence

    $24.95
    Alekhine's Defence is a sharp and controversial opening in which Black attacks from the very first move, provoking White into lunging forward in the centre. White is often able to construct an impressively large central pawn formation, but Black's hope is that this becomes over-stretched and disintegrates in the face of a vicious counterattack. 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.

  6. EBOOK - Dangerous Weapons - 1. e4 e5

    EBOOK - Dangerous Weapons - 1. e4 e5

    $19.95
    Are you tired of constantly having to keep up with modern chess theory?

    Or perhaps you simply wish to try out something new and inspiring, but cannot decide amongst the embarrassment of choices available?

    Look no further for the answer! In Dangerous Weapons: 1 e4 e5, renowned opening experts John Emms, Glenn Flear and Andrew Greet take a revolutionary look at one of the most famous and widely-played chess openings. Instead of travelling down well-trodden and analysed paths, the authors concentrate on fresh or little-explored variations, selecting a wealth of 'dangerous' options for both colours. Learn More
  7. The Sicilian Taimanov

    The Sicilian Taimanov

    $14.95

    Indeed, Bobby Fischer turned to the Taimanov in the decisive game of his famous match with Boris Spassky. In this book Grandmaster James Plaskett explains the strategy and tactics of this popular variation. Through the use of model games for both sides, the author provides a thorough grounding in the key ideas, so that readers can quickly and confidently start to use the Sicilian Taimanov in their own games.

  8. EBOOK - Slay the Spanish

    EBOOK - Slay the Spanish

    $19.95

    Former US Open Champion Timothy Taylor presents weapons for Black against the hugely popular Spanish Opening, with a repertoire based on the Modern Steinitz Defence. This has justifiably earned a reputation as an important alternative to the main lines, and it's easy to see its appeal. The Modern Steinitz can lead to razor-sharp positions, such as in the Siesta Variation, where one slip by either player could prove to be fatal. But a major attraction of the Modern Steinitz is its flexibility, and Black can also choose to play in a more positional manner.

In The Double Queen’s Gambit Black’s attitude is as active and ambitious as that of White in the Queen’s Gambit.
