Flesch Planning in Chess Book Chess Library has been updated.

Forming a correct plan in the middle game is one of the most important aspects of chess and a feature that distinguishes the master from the amateur. The author uses complete games to illustrate which factors influence the selection of a correct plan and how this plan is carried out.

In addition he examines the established chess "rules" and how and when they can be broken.

Pandolfini's Chess Endgame Course Book Chess Library has been updated.

Existing books on chess endings were of two unsatisfactory types. Either they were too analytic and technical or too vague and general. There was a compelling need to combine the best features of both types into a single instructional chess endgame book format.

So on my own I started to collect insightful endgame positions, explaining in both words and chess variations the concepts I judged to be most helpful to my students. My goal was to create an inventory of positions that would benefit any chessplayer who studied them.

Korn The Brilliant Touch in Chess Chess Library has been updated.

The popularity of books on combinations among chess players has a deeper reason than mere love of the brilliant, the sensational, the unexpected. No doubt this love is an integral part of their attraction, but deeper down there is the realization that the combination is an essential part of the game...

Edward Lasker Chess Strategy Chess Library has been updated.

There is no doubt that any chess player who will take the trouble to study Chess Strategy will spend many a pleasurable hour. Incidentally new vistas will be opened to him, and his playing strength increased to a surprising degree.

The large majority of chess players who would like to improve their game, have not the necessary opportunity of pitting themselves against players of master-strength, or at least of obtaining the desired instruction from personal intercourse with them. It is for such players that the present work is intended.

E. Znosko-Borovsky How not to play chess Chess Library has been updated.

How Not to Play Chess has long been regarded as a classic of a chess literature. It illustrates Eugene Znosko-Borovsky's gift for explaining a difficult subject briefly and yet unhurriedly.

Troitzky 360 Brilliant and Instructive Endgames Chess Library has been updated.

In chess, as in advertising, there are brand names. Few names are honored in chess as that of Troizky, who for more than forty years maintained a magnificent record of unbroken creative activity.

Keres, Kotov The Art of the Middle Game Chess Library has been updated.

Enjoy the classic chess ebook "The Art of the Middle Game" by Paul Keres and Alexander Kotov.

Many chess-players know a large variety of openings and understand well the pattern of the endgames - but what happens in the middle? The difficulty of understanding the principles of middlegame play is perhaps best illustrated by the dearth of good chess books on the middle game. They can be counted on the fingers of one hand...

Kasparov - Karpov 1990 match Chess Library has been updated.

The fifth World Chess Championship match between Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov (New York - Lyon, 1990) was one of the most complicated in the chess history. The opponents presented the highest level of chess mastership and notable grandmasters hardly discovered the plans and ideas of the world champion and his challenger for title in the press center.

free Garry Kasparov ebook Chess Library has been updated.

One should remember that the creative element in chess takes shape in hard-fought battles, in which, apart from talent and knowledge, a player must have the energy and will to win.

There is ample evidence of this in the present book, dealing with the chess career and creative development of the 13th World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov and his contribution to modern chess. The book is interesting because it shows how the chess talent of this brilliant chess player has evolved; how, by strenuous work in chess, he succeeded in overcoming the shortcomings of his play, in improving chess style and in deepening his understanding of the chess strategy and chess tactics.

During the Plymouth Congress in August 1948 I met Mr. J du Mont, then editor of the British Chess Magazine, who suggested that I should write a book on the lines of the present volume.

His idea was to give practical player some guidance as to how to proceed in a game from the point where the books on opening theory leave off. The result is the present volume...

Fine The Ideas Behind The Chess Openings Chess Library has been updated.

The classic chess book "The Ideas Behind The Chess Openings" by Reuben Fine added.

It has been said that ideas are weapons. That is certainly as true in chess as in any fields. A mastery of a little theory which conveys real understanding of the game is infinitely more valuable than a carefully memorized compilation of endless moves.
