Everyman Chess present three new books in their highly praised and best-selling Starting Out series. The series continues with coverage of two very popular openings among club and tournament players: the Trompowsky Attack and the Torre Attack. Added to this, there's an updated and largely expanded edition of Starting Out: The Sicilian, the much acclaimed guide to the most popular opening in chess.
The Starting Out series has firmly established itself as the leading guide to studying openings for up-and-coming chess players. These books are ideal for enthusiastic players who have little experience of the openings in question and who wish to appreciate the essential principles behind them.
International Master and chess coach Lorin D'Costa examines the popular Queen's Indian Defence. He highlights the typical plans and tactics for both sides, constructs a repertoire for Black and provides answers to all the key questions.
Grandmaster Nigel examines the Pirc Defense and its many variations. He shares his experience and knowledge with the opening, provides repertoire options for Black and tells you everything you need to know about playing the Pirc Defense.
John Cox presents a repertoire for Black with the ever-popular Queen's Gambit Declined. He covers the sophisticated Tartakower Variation, the easy-to-learn Lasker Variation and how to play against White's other options.
In this book Matthew Sadler shares his secrets and reveals how to incorporate unorthodox openings into your repertoire; how to study middlegame situations and how to understand what is important in the endgame.
In this user-friendly book, Grandmaster Neil McDonald goes back to basics, studying the fundamental principles of the Dutch Defence and its many variations. Throughout the book there are an abundance of notes, tips, warnings, and exercises to help improving players, while key strategies, ideas, and tactics for both sides are clearly illustrated.
In this book, former American Open Champion Cyrus Lakdawala studies his favorite Fischer games. Lakdawala examines Fischer's renowned skills in attack, defense, counterattack, exploiting imbalances, dynamic elements, accumulating advantages and endgame play.
