How to Win in the Chess Openings: A Noted Champion Reveals the Secrets of Seizing and Holding the Initiative by I. A. HorowitzIn this classic chess work, I. A.

To begin with, an outline and discussion of the principles and concepts of opening play, common to all openings. Then, in turn, an account of the most popular openings—attacks and defenses—and a breakdown of their individual moves and grand plans, with an attempt to show how the tactical forte of each move ties up with the strategical idea.

Knight's Tour: With Free Choice of Start and End

Chris Wasshuber

Knight's Tour: With Free Choice of Start and End by Chris Wasshuber
"I will sum up your Knight's Tour routine as follows, IT IS BRILLIANT!" - David Burmeister
In the late 1980s I developed a method for the Knight's Tour which allows a spectator a truly free choice for the starting square and ending square of opposite color (same color start and end is mathematically impossible).

This manuscript describes in detail this method. The method attempts to minimize memorization and teaches you a system to derive a proper complete tour on the spot. The method is so flexible that you can find several different tours for one pair of start and end points. Of course,...

Liquidation on the Chess Board: Mastering the Transition into the Pawn Ending

Joel Benjamin

In this ebook, former US Chess Champion Joel Benjamin teaches you all you need to know about successfully liquidating into pawn endgames.
