    An Aggressive Counterattacking Repertoire Based on ...g6
    Two Great Books Brought Together in One Volume!
    Catalog Code: B0495EM

    In these razor-sharp encounters, it goes without saying that one slip by either side can prove to be fatal. Because of its aggressive nature, the Sicilian Dragon is very popular at all levels of chess, while it received an ultimate seal of approval when Garry Kasparov used it as his main weapon to beat Vishy Anand in a World Championship match.

    EBOOK - Excelling at Technical Chess
    Learn to Identify and Exploit Small Advantages
    Catalog Code: E-B0121EM

    The implication from the author is that the task of converting a typically winning position into a full point or converting a drawing position into half-a-point is relatively straightforward. However, as all of us practical players realise, it's not always a simple as this, and many hard-earned points are wasted through 'a lack of technique'. In this valuable book, Jacob Aagaard aims to solve this perennial problem. He arms the reader with several endgame weapons that every strong technical player has in his toolbox.
