    Openings - The King's Indian Defense
    Catalog Code: B0011SU

    What does a chess player need who is familiar with the rules, but often gets into trouble right away in the opening?

Accordingly, readers will feel 'at home', so to speak, because they are familiar with how players of that skill level react in certain critical positions, and how the advantage often shifts from one side to the other due to typical mistakes. And learning from the mistakes of others is more pleasant in the sense that it is painless!

    The King's Indian Attack - Properly Played
    Catalog Code: B0004SU

    Any player who prefers to rely on main lines will be well acquainted with the problem of the sheer masses of opening theory. And as they do not stop growing, there's always the risk that sooner or later they will grow over one's head. Therefore, the wish for a simpler approach is understandable. The wish for an opening that does not necessarily aim for the earliest possible advantage. The wish for general conditions which ensure that the beginning of the game can be carried out without great risks and that the actual combat action begins in the middle game. And, indeed, such an opening does exist - the so-called 'King's Indian Attack'.

    The King's Indian Attack - Properly Played

    The French Defense - Properly Played
    Catalog Code: B0003SU

    The French Defense (1.e4 e6) caught the attention of the chess world in the first half of the 19th century, and has developed to be one of the most important and popular openings. The author of this book, the German Grandmaster Wolfgang Uhlmann, is a world-renowned expert who has tested this opening and enriched its theory over his entire career. 76 selected games (mostly his own) document the considerable success he has achieved with his favorite opening, often against the strongest opponents.

    The London System - Properly Played
    Catalog Code: B0002SU

    When the author’s first book about the London System was published a decade ago, this opening was almost exclusively played among amateurs. Since then, such players as Kramnik, Grischuk, Kamsky and World Champion Carlsen have started using it and achieving significant success! While the London System has stepped out of the shadows, this increase in publicity has had no impact on its overall reliability because its core advantages remain. This book features the latest in London System opening theory and is a must for any player looking to improve their opening play!
