    CLEARANCE - A New Era
    How Garry Kasparov Changed the World of Chess
    Catalog Code: CB0018RB

    May 1997. It was the match that stunned the world: Chess Champion Garry Kasparov was beaten by the massively parallel computer, Beep Blue - an opponent that Kasparov had vanquished in 1996. But unlike his human opponents, Deep Blue could be redesigned in the intervening year. The result: the first "player" - computer or human - ever to win a match against the chess genius. Kasparov's own move-by-move analysis of these games in "A New Era" shows just how much IBM has improved the breed, and how they were spoiling for a fight in the momentous rematch. A must read for anyone who is passionate about the world's most enduring game of strategy and wits, A New Era takes the reader inside the world of professional chess, offering insiders' insights (including those of Kasparov himself) into the politics and psychology of competition at the top levels of play, whether against human or machine.

    CLEARANCE - The Offbeat Sicilian
    Unorthodox Ways to Win With White!
    Catalog Code: CB0233RB

    The Sicilian Defense remains the most played opening in tournaments. It is the most thoroughly and deeply analysed openings, with 240 page studies of a single variation, and new theory evolving every month. It is no wonder that many players seek to avoid the complications of facing the most analysed lines and turn to the less explored byways. That is the theme of this book: win with the unorthodox Sicilian lines. A quick glance at the roster of players employing the offbeat lines will show that every top Grandmaster is using this strategy also. So here is a recipe for taking your opponent out of his book and winning!

Significant alternatives for White, for those with different styles, are mentioned parenthetically and sometimes as problems, like the highly successful King's Gambit As White.

    Two of America's top rated players present an up-to-date study of an opening which was once casually dismissed as suspect, but more recently has been played at the top levels of international chess. Bent Larsen's stunning defeat of World Champion Karpov at Montreal '79 with the Center Counter focused attention on the line. Former U.S. Champion and International Master John Grefe has teamed up with 1981 U.S. Open Co-Champion Jeremy Silman to present a clear picture of the current status of theory in the Center Counter.

    The opening has never been popular at the top level, though a number of prominent players have employed it on occasion (for example, Richard Réti against Abraham Speijer in Scheveningen 1923 and Boris Spassky against Vasily Smyslov in the 1960 Moscow–Leningrad match). Soviet player Alexei Pavlovich Sokolsky (1908–1969) wrote a monograph on this opening in 1963, Debyut 1 b2–b4.
