Varenummer9781784830717229,00 DKK Inkl. moms Developing an effective repertoire with 1.e4 requires extensive research, mixed with fine judgement and a good deal of creativity.

Varenummer9781911465232169,00 DKK Inkl. moms The Open Games (those beginning 1 e4 e5) are now more topical than ever, featuring in a high proportion of elite-level games. This new user-friendly guide offers players of all levels a carefully worked-out repertoire, taking into account this wealth of new material. Noted opening writer Sverre Johnsen has also taken a critical look at the more traditional Open Games, where theory is often based on old or obscure games. Making extensive use of modern computer engines, he has overturned ancient assessments and found new paths that breathe fresh life into positions long thought to be resolved. It is striking how often in his lines Black is able to seize the initiative. A full repertoire for Black with 1 e4 e5 when White avoids the Ruy Lopez ...Bc5 and ...Nf6 systems both fully covered after 3 Bc4 Each chapter starts with a ‘Memorable Game’ to inspire and set the scene Johnsen has chosen sound lines that are likely to surprise opponents and deny them the type of game they are seeking. He has deeply researched correspondence sources and recent books on the Open Games, and employs similar methods to those that made his earlier opening works so popular among club-level players. Sverre Johnsen is a chess analyst, researcher, organizer, trainer and writer from Norway. He is co-author of Win with the London System and Win with the Stonewall Dutch, two of the best-selling openings books of recent years.
Varenummer9781781944639179,00 DKK Inkl. moms Two winning books in one volume. 10 Great Ways get better at Chess by Nigel Davies How can you improve at chess? This is the eternal question asked by players of all levels. Which part of the game should you focus on? How often should you play? Should you change your opening repertoire? What's the best way to learn from your defeats? So many questions ... and yet direct answers are hard to find. In this book Grandmaster Nigel Davies provides that direction. He examines the methods used by a number of players who were looking to improve their game, and how they went about achieving their goal. He has drawn heavily on the games and thoughts of players who have been his students over the years and experienced a clear improvement in their play. Break the Rules!: A Modern Look at Chess Strategy by Neil McDonald In this instructive book, Grandmaster Neil McDonald studies in depth the key components of successful rule-breaking in chess. As we progress as chess players we quickly learn a set of guidelines which help us to formulate plans, develop typical strategies and recognize key tactics. However, chess is not an easy game, with fixed 'rules' that can be applied to every single position. In fact, blindly following such rules proves to be counterproductive and prevents a player from moving on to the next level, whereas knowing when to 'break' these rules is precisely the skill which separates the best from the rest.
Varenummer9781781944134189,00 DKK Inkl. moms Starting a chess game with 1 e4 e5 is so common that the resulting complex of opening systems traditionally commands its own sobriquet, “The Open Games” (1 e4 met by other replies are “Semi-Open Games” and everything else comes under “Closed Games”). The central structure with pawns on e4 and e5 often leads to play based around highly classical themes which are the bedrock of successful chess understanding. First Steps is a new opening series and is ideal for improving players who want simple and straightforward explanations.

Black plays very much in a hypermodern fashion, allowing White to build an unopposed pawn centre with the idea of plotting its eventual downfall. In this revolutionary book, Grandmaster Joe Gallagher goes back to basics, studying the fundamental principles of the Pirc/Modern and its numerous variations. In this revolutionary book, Grandmaster Joe Gallagher goes back to basics, studying the fundamental principles of the Pirc/Modern and its numerous variations. Starting Out: The Modern by Nigel Davies In this book, Davies studies the Modern by going back to basics, introducing the key moves and ideas, and taking care to explain the reasoning behind them - something that has often been neglected or taken for granted. The Modern Defence is a dynamic, ambitious and universal opening, one that can be used against virtually every system White can play. Black's provocative strategy is based upon allowing White to construct an imposing pawn centre in the anticipation that a well-timed strike will bring about its downfall. Both sides can play for high rewards, albeit at some risk: White can hope to succeed with a direct attack or to squash Black with a space advantage, while Black will aim to destroy White's centre and mop up the remains. All in all this can lead to intriguing battles in which one slip from either side is often fatal..

Varenummer9789056917548Normalpris: 169,00 DKK 169,00 DKK Inkl. moms The first one-volume book that covers all variations (2018) The English Opening (1.c4) is a popular choice at both club and master level, because it is a chess opening that suits all styles.

Varenummer9786197188189189,00 DKK Inkl. moms A Black repertoire based on the Queens Gambit Declined. All the opening variations for Black have been chosen according to the latest fashion in the games of the top-class grandmasters. For example, after the moves 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.cxd5, Kornev analyses a line which has been played often in the last several years by Vladimir Kramnik – 4..Nxd5, with which Black avoids several rather passive schemes, arising after the move 4...exd5. Following 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 Be7 5.Bf4 0–0 6.e3, he has chosen as an opening weapon for Black the move 6...Nbd7, which is used not only by the acting World Champion Magnus Carlsen, but also by almost all the participants in the Candidates tournament – 2018. Finally, in response to one of the main weapons for White against the Queen’s Gambit Declined – 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 Be7 5.Bg5 h6 6.Bh4 0–0 7.e3, Kornev analysed a variation, which has been lately preferred by Vishy Anand and Vladimir Kramnik – 7...Nbd7, after which Black does not need to know so much theory as in the Tartakower-Makogonov-Bondarevsky system (7...b6). In addition, this line is not such a brutal attempt to play for a draw with Black as the Lasker Defence – (7...Ne4).

Varenummer9781784830496229,00 DKK Inkl. moms The most significant difference between a grandmaster and a club player is not simply that the grandmaster calculates more accurately, but rather that he sees more deeply.

Varenummer9781784830519229,00 DKK Inkl. moms In chess you cannot take your move back, but you can always return a misplaced piece to its former square at the cost of some time. Pawns on the other hand can never move backwards, making pawn moves truly permanent decisions. This irreversibility makes Pawn Play among the most difficult aspects of chess strategy, which is one reason few books have been written about this topic – and some that have are almost incomprehensible. Double Olympiad gold medallist Sam Shankland has gone the other way – breaking down the principles of Pawn Play to basic, easily understandable guidelines every chess player should know. Shankland starts with extremely simple examples, but then lifts the level, illustrating the universality of the book’s guidelines by showing how grandmasters could have made better decisions by using them. Sam Shankland is a Grandmaster and permanent member of the US national team, winning an Individual Gold Medal in 2014 and Team Gold in 2016. In 2015 and 2017 he played Board 1 for the US team at the World Team Championship. This is his first book.

Varenummer9789056917623199,00 DKK Inkl. moms Every chess player loves to win early in the opening. However you should never lose sight of the most important objective of your opening play: the proper development of your pawns and pieces. That is why this book is more than just an enjoyable collection of traps and tricks. Prolific Russian chess author Nikolai Kalinichenko has collected 700 brilliant miniatures, topical games from a wide variety of players, from World Champions to amateurs. They are selected for their instructional value, and not merely to highlight blunders or accidents. In his notes Kalinichenko always explains the ideas and plans behind the opening and how play could have been improved. The games are arranged by opening, so the book can be used as a manual. Playing through these exciting games is not just highly enjoyable but will also teach you how to recognize opportunities to ambush your opponent in the first 20 moves. And, reversely, how to avoid such pitfalls in the opening. With the ideas presented in this well-organized book, the adventurous player will certainly win more games, and more rapidly! PRAISE FOR VASSILY IVANCHUK: 100 SELECTED GAMES, BY NIKOLAY KALINICHENKO: Paul Kane, Manchester Chess Federation: "Kalinichenko presents a vivid portrait of this brilliant player, still active and creative in his mid-'40s, and does a good job of making his inspirational games accessible to a wide audience." Max Euwe Center, Amsterdam: "The author explains the plans and the moves in such a way that also the average club player can follow the games." Uwe Bekemann, German Correspondence Chess Federation: "The games are annotated in a very entertaining way, always understandable for the beginner as well." Nikolai Kalinichenko is a Russian Correspondence Chess Grandmaster and one of the most widely read chess authors in the world.
Varenummer9781781944752199,00 DKK Inkl. moms In this book, prolific chess author Cyrus Lakdawala recommends a repertoire for White players who like to open 1.e4. The repertoire is based around two main themes: The suggested variations for White are ones that rely far more on a generic understanding of strategic ideas rather than the memorisation of reams of opening theory. This explains the choice of the Bishop’s Opening (handled “Lopez-style”) against 1...e5 and the Bb5 variations against the Sicilian Defence. Both these lines are designed to create dynamic and interesting middlegame positions rather than attempting to score a quick knockout victory – a generally overambitious aim that often backfires The variations are chosen so that White can gain space whenever possible. Therefore the Advance Variation is recommended against the French Defence (1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.e5) and also the Caro-Kann Defence (1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5). The fact that these lines often create similar middlegame structures is helpful for general comprehension of White’s plans. Everything you need to know to open 1 e4 with confidence Solid, reliable systems that do not require a mass of memorisation Written by one of the world’s leading chess authors Cyrus Lakdawala is an International Master, a former National Open and American Open Champion, and a six-time State Champion. He has been teaching chess for over 30 years, and coaches some of the top junior players in the U.S.
Varenummer9781941270837159,00 DKK Inkl. moms Sabotaging the Sicilian, French and Caro-Kann Defenses with 2.b3 In the first full book to examine 2.b3 against the Sicilian, French and Caro-Kann, mainlines, interesting sidelines and current theory are reviewed. In addition, what actually happens in modern practice is surveyed. The authors are optimistic for White, and concentrate on the best continuations while trying to be objective. It is in that spirit that they conclude that 2.b3 is sound against the Sicilian, fun against the French, and curious against the Caro-Kann. In all three cases, the objective is to sabotage Black’s play, to take him out of his comfort zone. The word “sabotage” has historically derived from throwing a clog into machinery, or in other words, throwing a monkey wrench in the works; here the wrench is a queenside fianchetto. White aims his light-square bishop toward the right flank; he typically delays Ng1-f3 so that he may play Qd1-f3 or advance his f-pawn, and use his light-square bishop to build a full-scale kingside attack. Queenside castling often occurs, hoping for a kingside pawn storm. Yet, despite all these characteristics of 2.b3, White may still retains the option of d2-d4 for a more conventional-looking 1.e4 opening. With 2.b3, you will have one more arrow in your theoretical quiver to battle Black. And, like it or not, Black will be compelled to do deal with the queenside fianchetto factor. Jerzy Konikowski is one of the most prolific chess authors in the world with dozens of publications in several languages to his credit. He holds the FIDE Master title as well as titles in correspondence chess and chess composition. Marek Soszynski is a Master of Philosophy and co-author of the best-selling and widely acclaimed How to Think in Chess.
Varenummer9789056917784229,00 DKK Inkl. moms The Caro-Kann is one of the most important and popular responses to 1.e4. World champions Botvinnik, Petrosian, Karpov and Anand have played this reliable chess opening in many of their games. Present-day elite players such as Hikaru Nakamura and Fabiano Caruana are proving that the ‘drawish’ reputation of the Caro-Kann no longer holds in modern chess. Victor Bologan presents a complete Caro-Kann repertoire for Black that is much more than just a lucidly explained and highly playable set of responses. In many lines Bologan provides – as he has done in his other recent major chess opening books for New In Chess – two options to handle the Black position. Bologan’s explanations are accessible for a wide range of players and he provides the reader with a thorough grounding in the strategic and tactical motifs. During his research, Bologan has found many new ideas and resources. After reading and studying this book you are bound win many exciting games with Bologan’s Caro-Kann! Victor Bologan is a world-class Grandmaster. His tournament victories include the Aeroflot Open in Moscow and the Dortmund super-tournament. He is the author of acclaimed and best-selling opening manuals. PRAISE FOR VICTOR BOLOGAN “Nobody has previously offered up so many practical ways of playing for Black. Throughout the work, I found that the author had found a happy balance in informing the reader without going overboard on unnecessary and often confusing detail.” GM Glenn Flear, Yearbook 120, on Bologan’s Ruy Lopez “A very accessible and useful guide to this ever-popular defence.” Sean Marsh, CHESS Magazine, on Bologan’s King’s Indian "There is a huge amount of theory in this book, but Bologan presents it in a lively manner and explains things simply and well. I give this book a strong recommendation for players of a wide range of playing strengths." IM John Donaldson, ChessToday, on Bologan’s Black Weapons in the Open Games

Varenummer9789056917715199,00 DKK Inkl. moms n his prime, in the 1970-s and 80-s, legendary Swedish chess grandmaster Ulf Andersson was a Top 10 player with a distinct, immediately recognizable style. He almost never lost a game and kept scoring wins from quiet positions. Quiet positons? Acclaimed chess author Cyrus Lakdawala has played Andersson’s lines for decades and explains that those positions only LOOK quiet. Ulf Andersson, who understood the subtleties of strategic chess better than almost anyone else, always detected and exploited hidden opportunities. As Andersson’s openings tend to glide into the middlegame and often into the endgame, How Ulf Beats Black is much more than just a chess opening manual. Lakdawala’s lucid explanations offer a practical guide to positional technique that will improve your endgame skills as well. On top of that it is also a games collection of a great but often misunderstood chess player. This repertoire is not based on forcing variations but on understanding the underlying principles and techniques. As a result your opponent will not be able to surprise you because you forgot to check recent novelties. The final chapter ‘What did Ulf play?’ presents exercises to test your understanding. Cyrus Lakdawala is an International Master and a former National Open and American Open Champion. He has been teaching chess for four decades, and coaches some of the top junior players in the US. Chess for Hawks, his first book for New In Chess, was an acclaimed bestseller.

Varenummer9781781944165199,00 DKK Inkl. moms The Caro-Kann Defence arises after the moves 1.e4 c6. With this first move Black (as is also the case with the French Defence – 1.e4 e6) plans 2 ... d5, establishing a well-protected central pawn. The Caro-Kann has a reputation as a rock solid defence that minimises the risk of Black being subjected to undue early pressure. Rather than inviting the opponent to engage in immediate warfare, Black focuses on completing development comfortably and postponing the serious battle until the middlegame. It is notable that the White systems which try to batter the Caro-Kann into early submission are highly double-edged and often rebound badly. First Steps is a new opening series and is ideal for improving players who want simple and straightforward explanations. First Steps emphasizes: the basic principles the basic strategies the key tricks and traps First Steps books are based around carefully selected instructive games which demonstrate exactly what both sides are trying to achieve. There is enough theory to enable the improving player to get to grips with the opening without feeling overwhelmed. If you want to take up a new opening, First Steps is the ideal place to start.

Varenummer9781781943267179,00 DKK Inkl. moms 2018 White players who enjoy playing the Ruy Lopez (1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5) often expect to have an easy time in the opening. Numerous Black systems allow White to complete development with natural moves which often results in a small but clear advantage. Not so The Schliemann. The Schliemann (3 ... f5) is a ferocious beast that immediately takes the fight to White. The swift counter with ... f7-f5 is undoubtedly risky but has the advantage of disturbing White’s equanimity and setting difficult problems to solve as early as move three. Any White player who is not highly attuned to the nuances of this system can quickly find themselves in very hot water. This makes the Schliemann an ideal practical weapon for the aggressively-minded tactical player. A thorough theoretical coverage of a dynamic counter-attacking system Discusses strategic themes as well as analysing complex tactical variations Written by an expert on the Schliemann
