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 Blackâ#x80;#x99;s responses. Also included are those variations where Black tries to steer the game into other openings like the Queenâ#x80;#x99;s Indian or the Tarrasch Defence. The book is classically structured (starting with the rarest variations before moving on to the most popular ones) and contains original analysis of many recent tournament games. Bologanâ#x80;#x99;s clearly formulated verbal explanations are essential for a good understanding of the strategic plans and the tactical themes of the Catalan

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
Coffeehouse chess tactics by John Healy( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 11 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
