    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.

    CLEARANCE - The Advance Variation of the French Defense - Vol. 2
    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."

    CLEARANCE - Veresov Opening
    Catalog Code: CB0152RB

    It is also often reached by transposition, for example 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.Bg5 (the most common move order), 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 d5 3.Nc3, or 1.Nc3 Nf6 2.d4 d5 3.Bg5. The opening was named after the German International Master Kurt Richter and later the Soviet master Gavriil Veresov, who played it frequently for over a quarter of a century. Along with the Trompowsky Attack, Colle System, London System, and Torre Attack, the Richter–Veresov Attack is one of the more common branches of the Queen's Pawn Game. The more popular Ruy Lopez opening looks like a Richter–Veresov Attack mirrored on the queenside, but the dynamics of play are quite different.

    CLEARANCE - The Modern Levenfish Attack in The Dragon Defense
    Catalog Code: CB0396RB

    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.
