    Clinch It!
    How to Convert an Advantage into a Win in Chess
    Catalog Code: B0208NIC

    How good are you at bringing in the full point when you hold a clear advantage or are just plain winning? An honest response to this question is likely to evoke some painful memories. Perhaps the single greatest frustration for club level chess players is that time and again they see wins turn into draws or even losses. Lakdawala teaches how to efficiently exploit a development lead, capitalize on an attack, identify and convert favourable imbalances, accumulate strategic advantages and other tools to increase your conversion rate. His examples are compelling, his explanations are captivating and often funny.

    How Ulf Beats Black
    Ulf Andersson's Bulletproof Strategic Repertoire for White
    Catalog Code: B0200NIC

    In his prime, in the 1970-s and 80-s, legendary Swedish chess grandmaster Ulf Andersson was a Top 10 player with a distinct, immediately recognizable style. He almost never lost a game and kept scoring wins from quiet positions.

    CLEARANCE - Dismantling the Sicilian - New and Updated Edition
    A Complete Modern Repertoire for White
    Catalog Code: B0194NIC

    The Sicilian Defence is the most widely played chess opening, both at club level as well as among top grandmasters. Since Black gets dynamic play in almost all variations, black players of all levels will probably continue to play the Sicilian for a long time to come. It has been difficult for White to obtain any advantage in Sicilian sidelines, and this book therefore presents a complete repertoire for White in the most widely played main lines: the Open Sicilians with 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3.

    CLEARANCE - Chess for Hawks
    Improve Your Vision, Sharpen Your Talons, Forget Your Fear
    Catalog Code: B0186NIC

    Is your natural instinct at the chessboard for caution and strategy or do you crave adventure and confrontation? This question may be more important than you think because being aware of your personal style (and that of your opponent) is essential in your development as a chess player. Cyrus Lakdawala does something no other chess writer has done before: he makes you reflect deeply about your style of play and its consequences. After reading Chess for Hawks you will be a stronger player because you have mastered an essential but neglected skill: you will know how to obey the position's requirements instead of your natural inclination.

    Fresh Ideas and New Weapons for Black in the Ruy Lopez
    Catalog Code: B0179NIC
