      The Chess Tactics Detection Workbook
      Catalog Code: B0401EM

      This workbook offers a unique framework to study chess tactics independent of themes, difficulty and—most importantly—even the existence of an actual tactic in a given position. Analyzing carefully selected games, from beginner level through to club and tournament level, the reader assumes the role of a tactics detective, checking for mistakes and missed opportunities by both sides without the help of a chess engine. This training method resembles live play far more realistically than solving puzzles, because each move has to be analyzed with respect to tactical possibilities—whether they exist or not.

      *PRE-ORDER* - Liquidation at the Chess Board
      Mastering the Transition into the Pawn Endgame
      Catalog Code: B0149NIC

      Pawn endings do not arise out of nowhere. Before emerging as endgames with just kings and pawns, they 'pre-existed' in positions that still contained any number of pieces. Liquidation is the purposeful transition into a pawn ending. It is a vital technique that is seldom taught. Strange, because knowing when and how to liquidate can help you win games or save draws. In this book, former US Chess Champion Joel Benjamin teaches you all you need to know about successfully liquidating into pawn endgames.

      Stinking Bishops
      Catalog Code: B0087OB

      Good-humoured dialogue is the reader-friendly technique, Stinking Bishops uses to present a pair of related but puzzling practical endgames. Take bishops: 'unlike' contrast with 'like'. Add a black and a white rook, then just a single white pawn, and we have seven chessmen. The 'books' are silent on this endgame, as indeed they are on all 7-man endings. Stinking Bishops is not deterred, venturing politely to differ, voicing a minority view. It investigates both cases, in the average player's company, and at his pace, consistently eschewing acres of so-called 'analysis' -- and in the process breaks new ground in chess literature.

      First Steps in Pawn Structures - Andrew Martin

      Understanding how to use pawns and how to handle different pawn structures are important topics for young or improving players to consider. On this new ChessBase DVD, IM and FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin investigates the notion that ‘pawns are the soul of chess’ and tries to explain exactly what this means. The effective use of pawns in the opening leads to the correct development of the pieces and a good game springs naturally from there. The pawn structure must be considered throughout the game and this is something that Martin also touches upon. The viewer will be treated to a tour of excellent games, both old and new, many from the period 2012-2014, which highlight key ideas about the correct use of pawns and from which one cannot fail to improve one’s technique. Thus this DVD is ideal for players below 1800 or indeed ambitious players of any level.
