'What do you do for fun?', Johnny Carson asked Bobby Fischer when he appeared on the Tonight Show shortly after he had become world chess champion.

The Russians trembled before him, the Americans and the rest of the world cheered him on. Fischer's chess prowess and his will to win were unparalleled. But so were his eccentric behaviour and his paranoia. After he won the wor
The powerful Catalan : a complete repertoire for white by Viorel Bologan( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 18 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 17 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 16 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
1001 chess exercises for club players : the tactics workbook that also explains all the key concepts by Frank Erwich( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chess is 99% tactics. This celebrated observation is not only true for beginners, but also for club players (Elo 1500 - 2000). If you want to win more games, nothing works better than training your combination skills. There are two types of books on tactics: those that introduce the concepts followed by some examples, and workbooks that contain lots of exercises. FIDE Master Frank Erwich has done both: he explains all key tactical ideas AND provides an enormous amount of exercises for each different theme. Erwich has created a complete tactics book for ambitious club and tournament players. He teaches you how to reach the next level of identifying weak spots in the position of your opponent, recognizing patterns of combinations, visualizing tricks and calculating effectively. Erwich has also included a new and important element: tests that will improve your defensive skills. 1001 Chess Exercises for Club Players is not a collection of freewheeling puzzles. It serves as a course text book, because only the most didactically productive exercises are featured. Every chapter starts with easy examples, but no worries: the level of difficulty will steadily increase

Van Perlo's endgame tactics : a comprehensive guide to the sunny side of chess endgames by G. C. van Perlo( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why is it that most amateur chess players love opening and middlegame tactics but hate endgames? Why do you usually look at only a couple of pages in any endgame theory book you see? Sit back, forget about theoretical endgames, and enjoy the entertainment of real life chess in Endgame Tactics! There is no substitutes for hard work in getting better at chess, as a wise grandmaster once said. But you always work harder at something you enjoy. Make the first step towards improving your endgame play (and beating more opponents) by learning to love the endgame. Endgames are fun, and the examples from everyday practice in Endgame Tactics prove it." -- Page [4] cover

The matches lasted a staggering total of 14 months, and the 'two K's' played 5540 moves in 144 games. The first match became front page news

With this new edition of his award winning book, International Master Herman Grooten presents to amateur players a complete and structured course on how to recognize key characteristics in all types of positions and how to make use of those characteristics to choose the right plan.

He supplies many modern examples, tested in his own practice as a coach of talented youngsters. In Chess Strategy for Club Players you will learn the basic elements of positional understanding: pawn structure, piece placement, lead in development, open files, weaknesses, space advantage and king safety. You will master the art of converting a temporary plus into other, more permanent advantages. The author also explains what to do when, in a given position, the basic principles seem to point in different directions.
