It is intended for players of a attacking style, or for use when the competitive situation demands an aggressive approach. The repertoire is based on 1 e4 as White, and the Sicilian Dragon and Leningrad Dutch as Black. Suggestions are also offered against all the opponent's main alternatives. Also available is the companion volume A Positional Opening Repertoire for the Club Player, offering a range of openings which are closely linked, but which are less forcefull in character.   2.  A Positional Opening Repertoire for the Club Player Author: Nikolai Kalinichenko Publisher: Moscow, Russian Chess House, 2007 Binding: Hardcover Language: English Publisher: Moscow, Russian Chess House, 2007 240 pages Nikolai Kalinichenko, an international granmaster in correspondence play and the author of some 40 chess titles, presents here a complete and up-to-date opening repertoire. It is intended for players of positional style, or for use when the competitive situation demands a solid approach. The repertoire is based on 1 e4 as White, and the Classical Sicilian and King's Indian Defence as Black. Also available is the companion volume An Aggressive Opening Repertoire for the Club Player, offering a range of openings which are closely linked, but which are less forcefull in character.   3. Kings gambit Author: Nikolai Kalinichenko Book series: Chess University Language: English Binding: Hardcover Publisher: Moscow, Russian Chess House, 2009 347 pages  This book by Nikolai Kalinichenko, an International Grandmaster in correspondence play, gives a systematic analysis of the King's Gambit using more than 300 annotated games, classic and modern, providing the reader with a sound knowledge of all the standard variations, together with their typical strategic and tactical ideas.   4. Play 2...Nf6! in the Sicilian Author: Grigory Bogdanovich  Language: English Binding: Hardcover Publisher: Moscow, Russian Chess House, 2009 291 pages  On the map of modern chess theory there is a 'blank spot' - The Nimzowitsch-Rubinstein Variation of the Sicilian Defence (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nf6) Everyone has heard of it, but no one really knows anything about it. The literature devoted to this topic is extremely scanty. Two or three articles, a few brochures, one ancient monograph (in German) - and that's all. The book of international master Grigory Bogdanovisch fills this gap. The author, a recognized expert on the Variation, has summarized and fully systemized his many years of experience in the given field. His views are subjective - but this is what makes them valuable. His conclusions are paradoxical, but they, so to speak, 'grab' the reader and do not leave him indifferent. You want to argue with him, but - and this is the main thing! - his presentation of the Variation makes you want to study it and play    5. English Defence Author: Ilya Odessky Language: English Binding: Hardcover Publisher: Moscow, Russian Chess House, 2007 270 pages This book is devoted to the paradoxical opening 1.d4 e6 2.c4 b6. By playing 3.e4 White immediately wants to punish the 'disturber of the peace' for his neglect of opening principles, but in this case Black sets his opponent such a variety of mines and traps, that he can gain an advantage, even omitting the equalising stage! At the present day the statistics after 3.e4 is appalling for White: in 7 out of 10 games he suffers defeat! The author, not relying on his own store of words, constantly hides behind the ckassics, citing them right and left. Characters form world literature and even departed personalities strive to take an active part in the analysis of variations.

The idea of beauty in chess is closely connected with our understanding of chess as a wide sphere of human culture and art. Not only for brilliant strokes or bright combinational ideas we are impressed by formidable games played by outstanding masters: depth of logic in positional play, refined technique of exploiting an advantage, lelgant implementation of strategical ideas are no less attractive. A point of a chess combination attracts both an ordinary amateur and an experienced profy. The eventual possibility of sacrificial combinations is what makes ches so impressive. The major part of these 1640 games are annotated by ourselves. Garry Kasparov: «This book will undoubtedly find a special place among fundamental works on chess esthetics and beauty. It contains a great amount of awarded games – plenty of material for studies in all aspects of chess. The principle of the selection is very democratic – together with grandmaster games, there are many nice examples of play originating from games by amateurs. The enormous effort in systematization and analysis of games made by the authors deserves all respect and gratitude».
