    The Art of Taking Calculated Risks
    Catalog Code: SWB0161NIC

    Winning in chess is impossible without taking risks. Winning requires courage and psychology, but above all: calculation.  When your main aim is to derail your opponent’s calculation by weaving a web of deception, you engage in the highest form of risk: bluff. Renowned chess coach Vladimir Tukmakov presents more than 100 practical ways that masters and grandmasters have used to push beyond the limits of calculation and take a deliberate risk. He shows how to trick your opponent into believing your bluff.

    SHOPWORN - Essays In American Chess History
    Catalog Code: SWB0030CA

    Essays in American Chess History has been a joy to create. Unlike larger, book length works, the essays here are self-contained, small or at least smaller units, each devoted to a different facet of the game that fascinates, infuriates, and forever will remain mysterious to us all, regardless of the many advancements made in modern technology. The essays may be read individually as well as collectively, and offer the reader glimpses into byways of the past long neglected. They record as well, at least for me, a progression in my thinking about chess, history, and their interrelationship.
