    CLEARANCE - Dismantling the Sicilian - New and Updated Edition
    A Complete Modern Repertoire for White
    Catalog Code: B0194NIC

    The Sicilian Defence is the most widely played chess opening, both at club level as well as among top grandmasters. Since Black gets dynamic play in almost all variations, black players of all levels will probably continue to play the Sicilian for a long time to come. It has been difficult for White to obtain any advantage in Sicilian sidelines, and this book therefore presents a complete repertoire for White in the most widely played main lines: the Open Sicilians with 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3.

    Catalog Code: CB0341RB

    The current volume (the fourteenth in the Syzygy Chess Opening Paperbound Series) not only re-examines classical and contemporary opening theory but also explores many new innovations in the middle game of the Center Attack. Primary in the editors' effort was to catalog new ideas and concepts for both White and Black aficionados of the jeu royale.

    CLEARANCE - The Keres Attack in the Scheveningen Defense - Volume 1
    Catalog Code: CB0407RB

    The Keres Attack harbors many subtle nuances and intricate finesses which reveal themselves only after serious study. In most chess openings which avoid immediate pawn contact (such as double King pawn and double Queen pawn openings), both players have greater liberty at developing their pieces within their own camps thus delaying a direct confrontation which may ultimately determine the outcome of the game.

    The 6 Bc4 variation offers a variety of themes and ideas after 6...e6 7 Bb3 b5. White eyes the sensitive e6 square for possible sacrifices with either Be6 or Ne6 once Black has removed one of its protectors (either by ...Bb7 or by blocking its protection with ...Nbd7 or, in some cases, ...Nfd7).

    CLEARANCE - The Polugayevsky Variation of the Najdorf Defense
    Catalog Code: CB0339RB

    This seemingly masochistic yet dynamic reply (7...b5), accredited to international world-class Grandmaster Lev Polugayevsky, is one of the most aggressive moves at Black's disposal. However, this blatant violation of traditional opening principles (six of Black's first seven moves have been pawn moves and initiating flank operations before stabilizing the center), has yet to invoke a clear refutation.

    Catalog Code: CB0318RB

    "3 e5 seriously cramps Black's Kingside and, if White succeeds in holding his d4 without any counter-balancing disadvantages, a moment must come when Lady Fortuna will smile upon him; in the form, that is, of an attack with his pieces on the Black King in his constricted position, or else a vigorous onslaught on the pawn chain with f4-f5."

    The attacking move 6 f4 against the Dragon Defense appeared in tournament praxis over half a century ago. White bypasses the heavily analyzed Yugoslav Attack (6 Be3, 7 f3 and 8 Qd2) and the well-tested Classical Variation (6 Be2, 7 Be3 and 8 00) in favor of immediate complications in the center.
