    CLEARANCE - Gambits in the Slav
    Catalog Code: CB0059RB

    IM's Donaldson and Silman are completing a series of volumes on the Slav Defense which will cover the opening in unprecedented detail, as well as bringing previous work up to date.

    CLEARANCE - Gambits in the Slav

    CLEARANCE - 500 English Miniatures
    Catalog Code: CB0094RB

    These collections have proven to be valuable to players who wish to see typical mistakes and how they are punished. But many readers simply find these games very entertaining. Quick victories have always been popular for light reading - the thrust of a quick mating attack or win has a certain attraction. Bill Wall adds light notes to illustrate better lines, or the continuation when an early resignation leaves it not too obvious how material will be lost or mate will follow.

In this book, National Master Eric Schiller guides you through every single plausible attempt to achieve an advantage for White, and shows how Black can meet all of them, often emerging with an advantage early in the game.
