      The Best Move
      Catalog Code: B0253IS

      The Best Move is a collection of very hard Chess problems based on actual grandmaster games. The reader is asked who has the advantage and why. Points are awarded not only for getting the answer right, but for seeing deeply into the positions. These problems are based primarily on the games of Grandmaster Hort and Grandmaster Jansa. These are not the typical "White to play and Win" problems. rather, the reader is asked to decide who is better. These are very hard problems. Do not be surprised if you do any of them, or if you get them only by guessing.

      Chess Informant - ISSUE 119
      Viking Edition
      Catalog Code: B0119INF

      Chess Informant 119 Viking is largely dedicated to the newly crowned world champion, Magnus Carlsen. He’s the emerging global brand and the new face of our beloved game. We offer exclusive Carlsen photos inside Chess Informant 119, but for the cover we preferred the symbolism of a sailing drakkar boat. This newest installment of the Informant is all about red and blue that one can connect with the Norwegian flag, perhaps as additional evidence that Vikings are back in fashion.
