Igor Smirnov

Grandmaster's Opening Laboratory 2: Advanced Chess Openings Course by Igor SmirnovAdvance your opening play to the level of Masters and Grandmasters! Learn the general principles of opening play. Get a powerful opening repertoire.

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.

How do you play an opening properly? In order to play the opening properly, a lot of people believe that...

Small Silicone Chess Board (10" x 10")

Lybrary.com

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...

Le système d'enchères américain intermédiaire by Chris Hasney & Jerry Pottier & Alain LacourseLe volume II, le système d’enchères américain intermédiaire, effectue la transition aux méthodes modernes incluant les ouvertures à deux faibles. Il enseigne toutes les notions du « standard » américain d’une façon qui intègre ses formes variées. Ne vous méprenez pas sur le terme « intermédiaire ». Plusieurs joueurs de duplicata croient avoir atteint ce niveau lorsqu’ils ne peuvent plus jouer dans les parties novices. Ce n’est pas le cas. Le niveau « intermédiaire », tel que défini par les auteurs, peut qualifier certains joueurs ne possédant aucun point de maître...

Scandinavian Defense: A Complete Chess Opening Repertoire Agains 1.e4

Zhigen Lin

Scandinavian Defense: A Complete Chess Opening Repertoire Agains 1.e4 by Zhigen LinThe Scandinavian: A Complete Chess Opening Repertoire Against 1.e4 is a chess ebook targeting the whole range from beginners up to masters.

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. Indian Grandmaster and World Champion Viswanathan Anand used it against Garry Kasparov in their 1995 PCA World Championship match. 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...

The Advanced American Bidding System

Chris Hasney & Jerry Pottier

The Advanced American Bidding System by Chris Hasney & Jerry PottierVolume III, The Advanced American Bidding System presumes a complete understanding and skill with all of the material in Volume II. However, some of the Volume II material is repeated for intended redundancy, since the authors suspect that many folks who shouldn't be attempting to study Volume III will do so anyway. After all, "I'm a Life Master, I must be Advanced." The authors suggest that anyone not comfortable playing in Flight A at an ACBL regional or national tournament, or the World Bridge Federation (WBF) or other governing body equivalent thereof avoid purchase and study of Volume III until they have...

The Intermediate American Bidding System

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.

Volume I, The Basic American Bidding System, was written for beginners and for social players who...

The Monte Carlo Tournament of 1903

The Monte Carlo Tournament of 1903 by Emil KemenyThe 3rd international chess tournament in Monte Carlo was held from 10th February to 17th March 1903.

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,...
