              Anti-Sicilians: A Guide for Black

              The Sicilian is far and away the most popular chess opening, and many players prefer to side-step the Open Sicilian with one of the Anti-Sicilian systems at White's disposal. This book equips Black to fight against all these lines. The Anti-Sicilian systems include: positionally ...motivated lines such as the 2 c3 Sicilian and the 3 Bb5 systems; slow but tricky attacking lines including the Closed Sicilian and the King's Indian Attack; aggressive but loosening ideas like the Grand Prix Attack and a variety of gambits. In the most critical variations, Rogozenko provides a choice between a solid and an aggressive option. He caters for those who meet 2 Nf3 with the three main moves, 2...d6, 2...e6 and 2...Nc6.

              Good planning is central to good chess. A plan gives meaning to maneuvers and tactical devices, forming a coherent whole that brings us closer to our goals. The modern understanding of chess planning has evolved considerably since the days of the grand plan, whereby a player migh...t even try to map out the whole course of the game. Nowadays, top-class players appreciate that the opponent's ideas also deserve respect, and our own plans must take them into account too. Modern grandmasters plan with great purpose but also flexibly, ready to adjust or even change direction completely when the situation demands it. Grivas provides 75 superb practical examples where it is important to make the right plan. Once the critical position is reached, he guides you through the options and challenges you to find the right path. Detailed solutions are provided, with a full discussion of the pros and cons of the various options.

              Chess Explained: The Taimanov Sicilian
               

              Chess Explained: The Taimanov Sicilian (Paperback, New title)

              Chess Explained is a new series of books about chess openings. They are not theoretical works in the traditional sense, but more a series of lessons from a chess expert with extensive over-the-board experience with an opening. You will gain an understanding of the opening and the... middlegames to which it leads, enabling you to find the right moves and plans in your own games. The Taimanov Sicilian is one of the most flexible options for Black in the Open Sicilian. Black avoids committing himself to a rigid set-up, and tailors his response once White has shown his hand. This can lead to a great variety of central structures, and the player with the better understanding of typical Sicilian themes will often emerge victorious - Taimanov positions need to be understood well in order to be played well. Many of the post-war World Champions have used the Taimanov, and amongst the current world elite, Anand has played it most frequently. This book covers the Paulsen set-up with ...Qc7 in addition to the 'pure' Taimanov with ...Nge7.

              King's Indian and Gruenfeld: Fianchetto Lines

              King's Indian and Gruenfeld: Fianchetto Lines (Trade Paperback / Paperback, New title)

              By calmly fianchettoing his king's bishop in reply to the King's Indian and Grunfeld, White seeks to draw the sting from these dynamic defences and exert positional pressure throughout the middlegame. By refusing to create a massive pawn-centre, he offers Black no target for coun...terplay. Some of the lines become very sharp, especially if Black makes an all-out attempt to generate counterplay and provokes White into hand-to-hand fighting. These lines in particular call for accurate, detailed analysis, and Janjgava provides this in abundance.
