    CLEARANCE - Scheveningen Variation of the Sicilian Defense - Early B7-b5 Systems
    Catalog Code: CB0330RB

    In both instances, very sharp and complex middlegame play ensues. Since White has omitted the defensive a2-a3 move, Black often has the b5-b4 counter-attack at his disposal. A lot of activity occurs on the critical a8-h1 diagonal, frequently leading to an exchange of pieces and both players must exercise caution in the resultant endgame.

    CLEARANCE - The Modern Center Attack in the Ruy Lopez
    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.

    CLEARANCE - The Najdorf Defense with 6 Bc4
    Catalog Code: CB0148RB

    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."

    Tartakover's book is still virtually unknown in the West, and therein lies the interest of the present work. In addition, our editorial comments (shown by 'RR') cover points not discussed by Tartakover and, where necessary, correct his notes. Overall the result is the most thorough survey of all the games from this unique event.

    This work has two purposes. One is to make the best of Klett's problems more widely available to a modern audience. The other is to introduce problems themselves to chess enthusiasts who are not yet familiar with them, for Klett's problems are very suitable for this purpose; the play in them is a kind of readily appreciated by players, and the best of them have rarely if ever been surpassed.

    CLEARANCE - Howard Staunton
    the English world chess champion
    Catalog Code: CB0199RB

    Howard Staunton (1810 - 22 June 1874) was an English chess master who is generally regarded as having been the world's strongest player from 1843 to 1851. He promoted a chess set of clearly distinguishable pieces of standardised shape that is still the style which must be used for competitions. He was the principal organizer of the first international chess tournament in 1851. From 1840 onwards he became a leading chess commentator, and won matches against top players of the 1840s. However, the achievement of Staunton have been neglected or even ignored by his own countrymen and this book seeks to rectify that.

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.
