    SHOPWORN - Beating Unusual Chess Openings
    Dealing with the English, Reti, King's Indian Attack and Other Annoying Systems
    Catalog Code: SWB0155EM

    Beating Unusual Chess Openings is a godsend to those chess players fed up with struggling against all opening moves other than White's main two: 1 e4 and 1 d4. From the respectable (English Opening, Reti and King's Indian Attack) through to the off-beat (Nimzo-Larsen Attack, Bird's Opening) and the totally bizarre (Orangutan, Grob); everything Black needs to know about facing unusual openings is covered within these pages.

    SHOPWORN - Play 1... b6
    A Dynamic and Hypermodern Opening System for Black
    Catalog Code: SWB0070EM

    Fed up with getting difficult positions with the black pieces? Tired of always having to keep up with all the latest developments? Take a break from the mountains of opening theory and play 1...b6! With the move, preparing a bishop fianchetto, Black immediately directs the game into relatively uncharted territory, one where White players are not able to sit back and rely on their 'opening book' knowledge. The real beauty of 1...b6 is that it can be played against virtually every single first move by White, so it is a perfect choice for Black players with neither the time nor inclination to memorize a multitude of different defenses.

    SHOPWORN - The Nimzo-Larsen Attack - Move by Move
    Catalog Code: SWB0371EM

    The Nimzo-Larsen Attack is an ideal opening choice for players keen to avoid mainline theory but still wanting to set their opponents problems from the outset. In the Nimzo-Larsen, White begins 1 b3 and then develops in hypermodern fashion – planning to undermine any central structures Black dares to erect. A key attraction of the Nimzo-Larsen is that White can steer the game into either sharp play or elaborate strategic battles. In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala invites you to join him in examining the many different variations of the Nimzo-Larsen. Lakdawala studies the typical plans and tactics for both sides, offers repertoire options for White, provides answers to all the key questions and tells you everything you need to know about playing the Nimzo-Larsen Attack.

Using illustrative games and drawing on his own experience with the opening, Lakdawala provides a repertoire for White, covers the main positional and tactical ideas for both sides, provides answers to all the key questions and tells you everything you need to know about successfully playing the Trompowsky Attack.

    The Blackmar Diemer Gambit
    A Modern Guide to a Fascinating Chess Opening
    Catalog Code: B0321EM

    The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit is a dangerous attacking opening which has amassed a cult following amongst club players, a loyal band of supporters like no other in chess. White sacrifices a pawn in return for a strong initiative which tests Black's defensive capabilities to the limit. Some experts have questioned its objective soundness, but there's no doubting its success and popularity over the board, where pressure and a ticking clock often means it's impossible to find the right defence.

    The Complete Polar Bear System
    Strong & Potent!
    Catalog Code: B0100OB

    1.f4 is the Bird opening. It was played by Henry Bird. He wanted to leave the mainstream and create new original positions. He liked a setup with b3 and Bb2. The Polar Bear System (PBS) was played with the same intention. To leave the trodden theory paths and enter new undiscovered terrain. The system starts with a fianchetto of the Kings bishop after 1.f4,d5. PBS players want to enter interesting and original positions where it is difficult for Black to play for a flat equality. The book is for club players but also professionals can get inspiration.

Many theorists have questioned the soundness of the BDG, but Ken Smith and John Hall have thoroughly analyzed this exciting opening and make a strong case for why you should add it to your opening repertoire!
