    Chess The Hard Way
    Catalog Code: B0258IS

    'Chess the Hard Way'' is the autobiography of Daniel Abraham Yanofsky, who was not only Canada's first chess grandmaster buit was Canada's only grandmaster until the modern era.

    Collection of Chess Studies by Troitzky
    Catalog Code: B0058IS

    Alexey Alexeyevich Troitzky (1866-1942) is considered to have been the greatest composer of chess endgame studies ever. To call him a genius is to trivialize his accomplishments, because there are many geniuses, but few can equal the output of Troitzky. In his lifetime, Troitzky composed more than one thousand chess endgame studies.

    CLEARANCE - Smith-Morra Declined - A Game Collection
    Catalog Code: CB0273RB

    This is a companion volume to the authors' Smith-Morra Accepted, in which they bring to the public their private collection of some 800 games involving the decline of the Smith-Morra Gambit in the Sicilian Defense. Grandmaster Larry Evans points out in his introduction that declining the gambit is not the correct approach to refuting the offer. The frequently quoted games in which Black is able to win are most often the result of White's failure to aggressively pursue his attacking possibilities. This collection is a superb method of studying the myriad opportunities available to both players.

    CLEARANCE - Winning With the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit
    Catalog Code: CB0116CD

    The Blackmar-Diemer (BDG) is a classic gambit opening, sacrificing a pawn early in development in order to open up lines and race ahead with strong developing moves. Unlike the other well-known gambits, such as the Scotch Gambit, King's Gambit, Smith-Morra Gambit and the Danish Gambit, the BDG is a Queen's Pawn opening. Many theorists have questioned the soundness of the BDG, but Ken Smith and John Hall have thoroughly analyzed this exciting opening and make a strong case for why you should add it to your opening repertoire!

    The main variation of the Queen's Indian arises after 1 P-Q4, N-KB3, 2 P-QB4, P-K3, 3 N-KN3, P-QN3. Since White does not threaten to play P-K4 immediately, Black is able to undertake the development of the queen side. The fianchetto of the Queen Bishop is an effort to establish control over his Q4 and K5 squares. The model games for this type of development were played by Nimzovich against Gregory and Bernstein in the period of 1913-1914.

    The death of Alekhine contains a paradox. If he had sought happiness, he found something different; if he had wanted fame, his name will live as long as chess is played.
