SofaKingKool Library - September 2019  - Page 2 9781906552411

Anatoly Karpov is one of the greatest ever Chess World Champions with his greatest strength being the subtle maneuvering of his positional play. Many of his opponents were baffled by the profundity of his strategies, but in this book award-winning author Tibor Karolyi explains Karpov's genius. Karolyi has selected Karpov's most entertaining and instructive strategic wins from 1961-1985 when Karpov was proving he was a worthy successor to the title vacated by Bobby Fischer's retirement.

Day 20

Chess Explained - The Grunfeld - Valentin Bogdanov

SofaKingKool Library - September 2019  - Page 2 190645406X

Chess Explained books provide an understanding of an opening and the middlegames to which it leads, enabling you to find the right moves and plans in your own games. It is as if you were sitting at the board with a chess coach answering your questions about the plans for both sides, the ideas behind particular moves, and what specific knowledge you need to have.

The Grünfeld Defence is one of the most aggressive openings at Black's disposal. He creates immediate imbalance and plans to strike at White's centre with all available resources. An insipid response from White may not even retain equality, so in the main lines he takes up the gauntlet: he creates a large pawn-centre and puts this to use to launch an attack. While the theory of these lines has been extensively developed, there is a coherent logical thread running through them: the Grünfeld is essentially an opening of grand ideas, which need to be understood well in order to get to grips with the theory and handle the resulting positions. This book provides a discussion of all major lines, and a special contribution from Viacheslav Eingorn on the key ideas of the Rb1 Exchange main line, which he was instrumental in developing in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Semi-Slav variation of the Queen's Gambit leads to some of the most complex positions in chess theory.

It is a favourite of Garry Kasparov, and recently has become extremely popular with younger champions such as Vishy Anand, Vladimir Kramnik, Vesselin Topalov, Gata Kamsky and Alexei Shirov. This book examines all aspects of the Semi-Slav, with the needs of the competitive player in mind. It includes all the recent development and many important games, accompanied by original analysis.

Attacking Chess - The King's Indian Volume 2 - David Vigorito

SofaKingKool Library - September 2019  - Page 2 Attacking%2BChess%2B-%2BThe%2BKing%2527s%2BIndian%2BVolume%2B2

The King's Indian remains a hugely popular opening – unsurprising given the attacking opportunities it offers. In many of the ultra-sharp main lines, White wins the queenside battle but this often turns out to be a Pyrrhic victory as Black wins the war by checkmating on the kingside! Black is hunting the enemy king and – in practical play – this gives him a psychological edge.
David Vigorito presents an aggressive King's Indian repertoire for Black based on the main lines. Vigorito is renowned for his opening expertise, and his suggested lines are full of innovative ideas. In addition, his lucid explanations of the key plans and tactics will benefit all players. Volume 2 deals with the Four Pawns Attack, the Fianchetto Variation, the Averbakh Variation and many other lines.
