    CLEARANCE - Viktors Pupols - American Master
    Catalog Code: CB0149RB

    This thin volume is an enlarged version of a very lengthy two-part article which appeared in the June and July 1982 issue of Northwest Chess that premier sectional monthly out of Seattle, Washington. Viktor's Pupols is a writer's dream. Pleasantly eccentric in virtually everything he does (and as the reader will soon discover, the owner of a chess style more baroque than Walt Disney's Fantasia), the man is an unstanchable torrent of eloquence.

    CLEARANCE - Sicilian Defence
    Lines with P-KB4
    Catalog Code: CB0550RB

    There are two Sicilian lines where White plays an early P-KB4; 1 P-K4 P-QB4 2 P-KB4 which is probably inferior to the system popularised by the Dutch player Vinken - 1 P-K4 P-QB4 2 N-QB3 and 3 P-KB4. This latter system occupies most of this book. The author demonstrates the Vinken System to be a viable alternative for White in which the first player strives for a King-side attack which can so easily come off.
