Konikowski & Bekemann: Openings - The English Opening Vol 1: Symmetrical Variation
What does a chess player need who is familiar with the rules, but often gets into trouble right away in the opening? This question was the starting point for the authors before they began to compile the material for a book about the English Opening. As their work progressed, they realized that there was too much material to be accommodated in a single work. That's why they decided to divide it into two volumes. Volume 1 deals with the Symmetrical Variation, which is characterized by the moves c2-c4 and c7-c5. It is presented in an introduction and 6 following chapters, which are designed according to the guidelines of the series 'read – understand – play'. The opening lines are explained in detail, with the authors paying special attention to the presentation of the inherent ideas and plans to ensure that the reader understands them properly instead of just playing moves learned by heart. Even the meaning and purpose of a single move may be explained, insofar as it is important for understanding. Based on the knowledge that the reader will surely acquire by studying this book, he will be able to use the discussed Symmetrical Variation with the white and the black pieces in an appropriate way. At the same time, the work offers one or the other new idea that can surprise even an experienced opponent and promises interesting, entertaining and – last but not least – successful chess games. The correctness of the treated lines was checked with the help of leading engines. FM Jerzy Konikowski has published a large number of excellent opening books. Uwe Bekemann is a national master in correspondence chess. He is the author of books on gambits and the co-author of many others. 180 Seiten, kartoniert, Joachim Beyer Verlag

Uhlmann: French Defense - Properly Played
The French Defense (1.e4 e6) caught the attention of the chess world in the first half of the 19th century, and has developed to be one of the most important and popular openings. The author of this book, the German Grandmaster Wolfgang Uhlmann, is a world-renowned expert who has tested this opening and enriched its theory over his entire career. 76 selected games (mostly his own) document the considerable success he has achieved with his favorite opening, often against the strongest opponents. The theoretical remarks integrated into the annotations provide the reader with well founded instructions for the treatment of this opening. It was not the author's goal to present a complete survey of all the systems and lines that build the French Defense but instead to put the positional evaluation and the creation of a plan in the foreground. At the same time this compilation traces the career path that the author has taken with his favorite French lines. Uhlmann's work is now available in the 4th updated and amended edition. In particular, the author has added five more recent games by other French specialists to the collection.   Grandmaster Wolfgang Uhlmann (born in Dresden in 1935) was the strongest player of the GDR from 1958 to 1989 and participated in 11 chess Olympiads (10 times at the top board). At his peak, he belonged to the world's top players and celebrated outstanding successes in many national and international tournaments. And last but not least, he was active for many years in the German top league (Bundesliga) and has made a name as the author of numerous publications.   185 Seiten, kartoniert, Joachim Beyer Verlag

Mikhalchishin: The Sharp Arkhangelsk Variation in the Ruy Lopez
Great players always have their own successful variations in the opening. One of them is the Sharp Arkhangelsk variation which arises after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.O-O b5 6.Bb3 followed by Bb7 and/or Bc5. It's one of the most powerful opening weapons of great players like Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana. This variation is very rich, as it is possible to play in three different ways; meaning it's much more difficult for your opponents to prepare against. The author will show model games to underline the ideas and lines that this variation has to offer. Instead of learning moves by heart, the concepts and ideas will give you the confidence to play the opening against all levels of opponent.
