Extreme Chess Tactics
Tactical ability requires knowledge and skills: knowledge of patterns and tactical methods, and the skill to recognize them, combine them, and calculate accurately. This book features both composed studies and real-game positions. Composed positions distil tactics into their purest form: nothing irrelevant is present on the board. We can focus purely on the key ideas, which makes them an ideal learning tool. As one of the world’s greatest experts on chess composition, Yochanan Afek is the perfect man to select the best studies for this purpose. In over-the-board chess (in which Afek is also highly accomplished), the tactical ideas tend to be less complex, but they may prove harder to identify – unless they are already familiar to you. Afek provides a case in point in his introduction, where the stunning final move of the 2016 world championship could not possibly have been missed by those familiar with a previous game. All the real-game positions in this book are taken from games by world champions (male or female). Following the structure of John Nunn’s best-selling Learn Chess Tactics, in each chapter a theme is introduced and a number of examples are explained. Then the reader immediately gets to use this knowledge in a series of carefully selected exercises.

The Extreme Caro-Kann: Attacking Black with 3.f3
The Extreme Caro-Kann: Attacking Black with
Alexey Bezgodov presents an unusual idea for White against the ever popular Caro-Kann Defence. The Russian Grandmaster and chess opening expert advocates a very early deviation, the annoying and little explored 3.f3!? This move may look unimpressive at first sight, but it considerably complicates life for Caro-Kann players, as it makes Black’s main problem bigger: the development of his bishop on c8. Small wonder that an increasing number of strong grandmasters, such as Vassily Ivanchuk, Alexander Morozevich and Judit Polgar, have incorporated this move in their repertoire.After 3.f3!? the bishop on c8 has nowhere to go, and Black will often struggle to avoid enduring problems. White’s chances to obtain an advantage are substantial, as Bezgodov shows in this fascinating new chapter in modern chess opening theory, packed with original analysis and clear explanations.

FCO: Fundamental Chess
* The perfect survival guide to the chess openings* All openings covered* Detailed verbal explanations of plans for both sides* Up-to-date and featuring many tips and recommendations* Insights into the 'character' of each opening* Written by one of the world's foremost opening experts The first moves of a chess game define the nature of the whole struggle, as both players stake their claim to the critical squares and start to develop their plans. It is essential to play purposefully and to avoid falling into traps or reaching a position that you don't understand. This is not a book that provides masses of variations to memorize. Paul van der Sterren instead offers a wealth of ideas and explanation, together with the basic variations of each and every opening. This knowledge will equip players to succeed in the opening up to good club level, and provide a superb grounding in opening play on which to build a more sophisticated repertoire. The strategies he explains will, unlike ever-changing chess opening theory, remain valid as long as chess is played, and so the time spent studying this book will be rewarded many times over.

Capablanca's Best Chess Endings: 60 Complete Games
Capablanca's Best Chess Endings: 60 Complete
Chess endings have an immediacy lacking in chess endgame or chess problems: endings are not theoretical or composed, but actual board positions, the point in every game when the superfluous falls away, leaving only the essential. José Raúl Capablanca (1888–1942) had no need for isolated artistic theory or compositions — he composed and created chess art as he played. All of his genius — intuitive, tactical, strategic, logical — all of his art shines clearest in his endings, as he himself was proud to declare, advising others to study them carefully. "In order to improve your game," he said, "you must study the endgame before anything else; for whereas the endings can be studied and mastered by themselves, the middle game and the opening must be studied in relation to the endgame."The best way to follow Capablanca's advice is through this — the only book devoted to his great endings, 60 complete games emphasizing the grand finale but annotated throughout.Irving Chernev communicates in his notes the mystery and wonder as well as the delight in discovering again and again the original, fertile mind of chess's greatest born player. "Virtuoso," "exquisite," "profound," "inspired," "elegant," and "fiendish ingenuity" describe match and tournament games and endings against A...

The Inner Game of Chess: How to Calculate and Win
The Inner Game of Chess: How to Calculate
Do masters methodically cut their way through the branches of a tree of analysis? Is it true that attacking players calculate a dozen moves ahead, while positional specialists rely on abstract principles? What exactly does it mean to "calculate," anyway?In The Inner Game of Chess, GM Andy Soltis shows that the key to good calculation is good visualization of the position in front of us and then after the moves we’re considering. Being aware of tactical motifs; knowing when to stop looking; and verifying your chosen move are essential, but they all depend on the basic requirement to see clearly what’s going on. The author discusses common obstacles to clear visualization and offers techniques to overcome them in your own play.This 21st-century edition of Soltis’s celebrated work features new material and revised analysis, while retaining all the insights that made The Inner Game of Chess an instant classic.

This is the one to watch. It is fast becoming a cult phenomenon: Will it become the next new Olympic sport? Former ABC News Correspondent Mike Lee takes you on a two hour 5 minute roller coaster ride through one of the most unusual and most challenging games ever invented.Whether you are a Chess fan, or a Boxing enthusiast, or both, you will experience the white knuckle thrill of the competition and suspense.At first glance it looks and sounds like boxing, with all of the ringside rush and tension. But when round one begins the fighters, who look like they want to kill each other, instead sit down for a game of chess. Welcome to Chess Boxing. Six rounds of speed chess shuffled with five rounds of boxing. And may the most brutal genius win, by a knockout, checkmate, chess time penalty, or combined points from the chess and boxing judges. "Chess Boxing challenges everything you thought about boxing and everything you might have thought about chess," says promoter Tim Woolgar. And no wonder. Just imagine after four minutes of brain twisting chess, you have to punch your way thru three minutes of boxing...trying to keep your mind on saving your jaw, not saving your queen. "If you have a bad round of chess, those pieces are in the same place when you come back to them" says ChessBoxer...
