  2. Chess Mastery

    Chess Mastery

    Our Price: $15.95
    The master chess teacher Fred Reinfeld takes 16 great and instructivre master games This book is different from most others in that here Fred Reinfeld adopts a variety of the Socratic method.

  4. Middlegame Transition Guide - EMPIRE CHESS

    Middlegame Transition Guide - EMPIRE CHESS

    Our Price: $34.95
    This DVD presents the guide for transition to the middlegame, how GMs plan the passage from the opening to the middlegame, paying particular attention to how the choice of opening decides the plans on how to follow on to the middlegame and the endgame. During the middlegame, the player can lose the advantage they obtained in the opening if they do not know how to correctly enact their plan; just as it happens to experts in endgames. If you do not obtain an advantageous position in the middlegame, it will be very difficult to achieve victory in the endgame. Learn More
  5. How Super GMs Think - EMPIRE CHESS

    How Super GMs Think - EMPIRE CHESS

    In this DVD you will learn the art of defense, just like the GMs employ when they need to defend themselves against the attacks of their opponents. It is important to learn the basic concepts of defense in order to avoid suffering painful defeats due to not knowing how to react. Defense is sometimes a difficult task and a part of the game that many players do not like, often even avoiding positions where they have to defend themselves, despite it being the best option.

  10. The Soviet Chess Primer

    The Soviet Chess Primer

    Our Price: $24.95
    Ilya Maizelis’s masterpiece is the definitive introduction to the game of chess.

Learn More
  11. Stinking Bishops

    Stinking Bishops

    Our Price: $19.95
    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. Learn More

  13. New Art of Defense in Chess

    New Art of Defense in Chess

    Our Price: $23.95
    Most chess games are not won – they are lost. Many instructional chess books tell you how to improve a position when it is already (or may be) favourable. This book offers help when you definitely do not have the advantage. Every chess player needs a sound arsenal of defensive techniques. This book covers them all – counterplay, when to accept sacrifices, how to anticipate short- and long-term threats, and how to minimize losses. It also helps you create a strong underlying psychological framework for defensive technique – it teaches you how to stay cool under fire, how to stonewall and how to exploit your opponent's weaknesses. Learn More
  14. The Secret Life of Bad Bishops

    The Secret Life of Bad Bishops

    Our Price: $24.95
    The Bad Bishop is a notorious villain in chess, but often a perfectly respectable bishop is falsely accused. The Secret Life of Bad Bishops takes an in-depth look at the bishop – not just dealing with good and bad bishops but also more nuanced cases where a “double-edged bishop” could turn out to be a game-winning hero or a fatal liability. All phases of chess are covered, from opening to middlegame to endgame. The final two chapters test the reader’s newly enhanced understanding with carefully chosen exercises and instructive solutions. Learn More
