The powerful Catalan : a complete repertoire for white by Victor Bologan( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Catalan is a solid yet flexible chess opening system that is popular on all levels. Both amateurs and top-level strategists such as Vladimir Kramnik and Vishy Anand employ this opening to put a lot of unpleasant pressure on Black. In The Powerful Catalan grandmaster Victor Bologan presents a complete repertoire for White that covers all of Black's responses. Also included are those variations where Black tries to steer the game into other openings like the Queen's Indian or the Tarrasch Defence. The book is classically structured (starting with the rarest variations before moving on to the m
Coffeehouse chess tactics by John Healy( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With refreshing simplicity, Coffeehouse Chess Tactics shows how to turn bad, even seemingly hopeless positions to our advantage. How to distinguish the essential from the trivial. How to adapt according to the situation on the board. Each game sparkles with some unusual tactical or defensive motif. Along with the games the author describes in eloquent but brutal language the beautiful, sometimes terrible, world of chess "where sport, art and science merge. Where adrenalin gives such a high. Where hours pass, many, many of them so that we do not know what time it is any more!" Fascinating and co
Sabotage the Grünfeld : a cutting-edge repertoire for white based on 3.f3 by Larry T Kaufmann( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea is as clever and original as its inventor. With 3.f3 (after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6), Alexander Alekhine designed a promising strategy to take Grünfeld players out of their comfort zone. Alekhine's find was a great idea in the days of the fourth World Champion and it still is. In fact, its recent revival has opened up a new chapter in chess opening theory. Top players like Vishy Anand and Levon Aronian have used it with success. The popularity of this variation is easy to understand: it offers White much better chances for an advantage than the normal 3. Nc3 because it makes 3 ... d5, the favor

Better thinking, better chess : how a Grandmaster finds his moves by Joel Benjamin( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Op het omslag: "Finding strong moves doesn't simply depend on how much you know about chess. In fact, greater conceptual knowledge makes choosing a move more complex as it increases the number of directions your mind can take. More important is optimizing your thought process. Grandmaster Joel Benjamin knows that pointing out the moves his students missed is just half the job. They need to understand that they were looking in the wrong direction. Chess engines offer little help in this because they can't explain why you went astray. What's more: an engine may send the wrong message! Many chess players don't realize that the top computer move frenquently isn't the best move to play during the game"

Liquidation on the chess board : mastering the transition into the pawn endgame by Joel Benjamin( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Pawn endings do not arise out of nowhere. Before emerging as endgames with just kings and pawns, they 'pre-existed' in positions that still contained any number of pieces. Liquidation is the purposeful transition into a pawn ending. It is a vital technique that is seldom taught. Strange, because knowing when and how to liquidate can help you win games or save draws. In this book, former US Chess Champion Joel Benjamin teaches you all you need to know about successfully liquidating into pawn endgames. He focuses on the practical aspects: what to aim for and how to get there. When to start trading
