    Winning with the Slow - But Venomous - Italian
    An Easy-To-Grasp Chess Opening for White
    Catalog Code: B0181NIC

Müller and Souleidis have created a solid weapon that every amateur chess player will delight in playing. With a foreword by Anish Giri.

    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 Modern Vienna Game
    Catalog Code: B0109EU

    The Vienna set-up aims for very aggressive play, which often includes sacrifices. But White prefers to be on the safe side, without burning all the bridges and to try to justify his actions from the point of view of positional play as well. At first, he deploys his minor pieces to active positions, then he advances the thematic move f4, castles (usually on the kingside) and begins an attack only after all this. Despite the fact that the move 2.Nc3 has been played for more than a hundred years, there has not been defined a clear-cut scheme for playing this set-up.

    The Italian Game (sometimes referred to as the Giuoco Piano) is one of the oldest openings around, and also one of the first lines a player learns when he or she is introduced to chess. It leads to play that is easy to understand: both sides develop their pieces logically and begin attacks on the opposing kings. The Italian Game gives both White and Black the opportunity to play either aggressively and in gambit fashion, or in a restrained and positional manner. One of White's most exciting and attacking options is the legendary Evans Gambit, which has been brought back into the limelight in this modern era by such uncompromising players as World Champion Garry Kasparov, Alexander Morozevich,and England's Nigel Short.
