    Empire Chess - Sample Disc
    Catalog Code: DVDSAMPLE-EP

    Too many games end in either premature draw offers or resignations. Fighting in the endgame is a skill that can help players rack up those extra points. Alisa Melekhina analyzes two of her own games, one in which she drew a pawn down, and another in which she pulled off a win in an equal rook ending. The viewers are led through four major principles that can be applied in their own endgames: mentally adapt to a change in the position; resist by preventing your opponent from executing their only winning plan; take advantage of complacency; make your opponent make decisions. Even if a position is theoretically drawn, players should not discount the practical chances that they can create.

The question remained as to which grandmaster should have the privilege of challenging Alekhine for the next title match. Various players citing excellent results in recent tournaments made claim to be the next challenger. But who was the second best player in the world?In order to help settle this dispute, a Dutch radio company, Allgemeese Vereningun Radio-Omroep (A.V.R.0.) organized a tournament exclusively of the eight strongest players in the world at the time, with the belief that the winner of the tournament, if not Alekhine himself, would earn the right to the next World Chess Championship.This book describes, in detail, that tournament, the circumstances that lead up to it, the participants and their games, as well as the results of the legendary, but under-appreciated tournament.

    There is no longer any excuse for study enthusiasts familiar with the contemporary scene to remain uninformed, as I admit to have been myself, about the development of composition on the other side of the Atlantic. All is now revealed by the man most competent to do so. Walter Korn, for many years the leading American endgame columnist, traces the evolution of the endgame study. Walter Korn writes with feeling. He shares the suffering and elation of those he writes about. He has been through it all himself and his descriptive writing stems from a deep love of his subject and of the work of his compatriots. A warm hearted book.'' - an excerpt from a review by C.M. Bent in the British Chess Magazine.

    Chess analysis is nearly as old as the game itself, with many of the pioneering works by the giants of chess history being devoted to the analysis of positions, openings and endings. Personal computers and powerful chess software are having a profound effect on chess analysis and theory - most grandmasters use them extensively. However, this book does far more than explain methods for computer-assisted analysis. Readers will develop a deeper understanding of the strengths and limitations of the human mind, and a greater understanding of many areas of chess while working through the examples that Robin Smith presents.
