    Opening Simulator - King's Indian Defence
    Catalog Code: B0158QT

    Opening Simulator is a new and innovative approach to studying the opening, based on the Deliberate Practice concept. Rather than presenting moves and variations, the authors offer a 'read, solve and play' approach which is designed to replicate a real game more closely than other opening books. First, a thorough Introduction discusses the main variations, pawn structures and themes. Then, after working through the 400 carefully chosen exercises, the reader will benefit from enhanced tactical and problem-solving ability.

    Opening Repertoire - 1 d4 with 2 c4
    Catalog Code: B0503EM

    In this book the highly experienced chess author and coach Cyrus Lakdawala goes back to basics, outlining an aggressive repertoire for White based on 1 d4, following up with the traditional 2 c4. The emphasis of the repertoire is to gain space as quickly as possible and set Black the task of finding quick counterplay or face the risk of being overrun. Lakdawala recommends lines with f2-f3 against the Nimzo-Indian, the Petrosian System against the King’s Indian and the Flick Knife (f4 with Bb5+) against the Benoni.

    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.

    First Steps - The Scandinavian
    Catalog Code: B0476EM

    The Scandinavian (also known as the Centre Counter Defence) occurs when Black meets White's 1 e4 with 1 ... d5, immediately countering in the centre. White invariably continues with 2 exd5 when Black can choose between two systems, both of which are covered in this book. Firstly 2 ... Qxd5, which regains the pawn immediately but exposes the black queen early on – a feature that complicates the play for both players. Secondly 2 ... Nf6, which invites White to risk attempting to hold onto the d5-pawn. If White goes down this path then a complex tactical struggle can easily develop.

    First Steps - The Modern
    Catalog Code: B0455EM

    The Modern Defense is an important opening that can be played by Black against absolutely any White opening system. It is an ambitious, counterattacking weapon, favored by dynamic players. White is initially allowed to occupy the centre but Black plans to undermine this structure in the middle game with well-timed blows from the pieces and pawns. If Black gets it right then the white centre can be dramatically swept away. However, when it goes wrong, Black can be overrun.

    The Sveshnikov is a very important variation of the Sicilian Defence. One of the Sveshnikov's main attractions is that it provides a battleground for one of the key conflicts in chess: structure versus activity. Black sacrifices structure in return for active piece play – a dynamic that regularly leads to sharp and complex positions, rich in strategic and tactical possibilities. In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala invites the reader to join him in studying the Sveshnikov Sicilian.
