Max Ödlund

Cranium Conundrums 2 by Max ÖdlundThis is volume 2 in Max Ödlund's series of brain teasers and logic puzzles. (Volume 1 is Cranium Conundrums.) Each of the 80 puzzles has a difficulty ranging from 1 = easy to 5 = extremely difficult. Some problems are marked ’s’ for ’silly’. Puzzles in the 1-3 or s category are generally speaking solvable in a few minutes of thinking or a bit of scribbling and drawing on a piece of paper. Should you not find the solution then each puzzle has a clue on the following page. This is a great feature, because it means you do not have to give up if you have no idea of how to solve the puzzle. The clue will...

This allows instructors time to complete any unfinished work from 1st semester and still have extra time for integrating new members into the club, final prep for online College Bowl competition, etc. It should be noted that the rules for the competition have changed. You now have two chances (one each semester) to qualify, but they occur much earlier in the calendar year in fall and winter. Adapt and overcome.

The Grandmaster's Positional Understanding

Igor Smirnov

The Grandmaster's Positional Understanding by Igor SmirnovHere I reveal EVERYTHING about Chess Strategy. Allowing you to take your play to the NEXT level.

Why do STRONGER players play better than the average club player?

Why is it that they WIN games and tournaments almost ALL the time...and some players can't even keep a positive score? The answer obviously is this:

Stronger players UNDERSTAND chess better!

No, they don't just calculate variations. Strong players don't just memorize opening lines. They don't just look for tactics every move. What set really strong players ahead of the pack is their DEEP and CLEAR UNDERSTANDING of the game....

Really, why? A lot of people play and study chess. However, only 1-3% of players have really good achievements (titles, prizes...). What is different about this successful minority from the rest? It is NOT a matter of talent. I have observed thousands of different players, and I can state it with confidence. Yes, you need to have chess talent for the highest chess achievements (over 2600-2700 rating). However, anyone...

What determines your WIN/LOSS in a chess game? Whether or not you win or lose is determined by your opening preparation, your middlegame skills, and your endgame technique. At the same time, the opening phase is MORE important because if you don't play it well, you will lose sooner than you can demonstrate your middlegame/endgame skills.

Small Silicone Chess Board (10" x 10")

Small Silicone Chess Board (10" x 10") by Lybrary.comThis is a 10" x 10" chess board (square size is 1 1/4"). The overall size of the silicone sheet is 10 1/4". There is no alphanumeric notation on the border.

The primary advantage of this small roll up chess board is mobility. The no-memory-effect silicone material allows you to roll it tightly, fold it, or just squeeze it together anyway you like, and still have the board open flat and stay flat instantly. The problem with vinyl boards is that they tend to roll up by themselves particularly if stored for longer time in a rolled up state. Not so with this board. It will stay flat no matter...

The Scandinavian Defense is favored by a large number of grandmasters and has often been employed as a surprise weapon by a number of high-class players.

Anand managed to equalize out of the opening, but he faltered later on.

Perhaps the greatest exponent of the Scandinavian was Australian Grandmaster Ian Rogers, who used it to rock...

Chris Hasney & Jerry Pottier

The Intermediate American Bidding System by Chris Hasney & Jerry PottierVolume II, The Intermediate American Bidding System, makes the transition to modern methods including weak two openings. It teaches all of the pieces of "Standard" American in a way that integrates all of the varied forms of same. Don't be thrown by the term "intermediate." Many duplicate players think that they have reached that level when they can no longer play in novice games. Not so. "Intermediate," as defined by the authors, can vary from folks with zero ACBL masterpoints to 2500 masterpoints. It's not the points that count, it's the skill level.

The Basic American Bidding System

Chris Hasney & Jerry Pottier

The Basic American Bidding System by Chris Hasney & Jerry PottierThe American Bridge Series is designed as a sequential set of bidding courses, suitable for self-study or classroom-style study under the guidance of a professional bridge teacher. Volumes I through III include declarer play and defense skills as they relate to the bidding skills taught in each text. Volume IV is reserved for true experts; thus, declarer play and defense lessons would be an insult and are not included. The entire series takes about five years of study and practice to complete.

Simplicity Bridge

Chris Hasney

Simplicity Bridge by Chris HasneyFrom the introduction:

Charles Goren was right. As early as the mid-1950s he was urging bridge players to avoid getting caught up in all the trendy new bidding systems with their myriad confounding conventions. Eventually, even the great Goren was dragged screaming and kicking into the new age of scientific bidding, allowing that things like the Blackwood ace-asking convention and the artificial 2C Stayman bid to check for a 4-4 major suit fit after a 1NT opening bid could be useful at times. But in fighting against complications to our great game of contract bridge, Charles Goren was...

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,...

Fall of the Cards

Donald Parson

Fall of the Cards by Donald Parson
"The hands are 'provocative' in the sense that they will, or at least ought to, provoke the reader to use his or her brains." - Bridge Plus
Problems of the type for which the author is infamous are limited in number, for they demand a combination of qualities not often found together. They should be problems rather than puzzles, instructive rather than baffling, presenting situations that arise in everyday play. They should be short and snappy, and answerable by a concise statement, preferably early in the game; for if delayed too long, variations in defense may lead to complications that...

Just as Carroll's Through the Looking Glass and Nabokov's The Defense are structured in accordance with the rules and logic of chess, so Quinn has patterned the action of this swift-paced, suspenseful tale on the psychological intricacies of bridge, craftily building a house of cards that tumbles into a surprise ending.
