The Chameleon Variation: Confronting the Sicilian on Your Own Terms

The Chameleon Variation: Confronting the Sicilian on Your Own Terms

Publisher:Russell Enterprises

Author:Carsten Hansen

Price:  **$12.99

Contents:160 pages

Release Date: November 2017

Book Description:The Sicilian jungle is vast. Unless you have a massive amount of time on your hands, it is an exhausting task to keep a sharp opening repertoire together against Black’s numerous possibilities. It does not mean that it is impossible, nor does it mean that you shouldn’t do it. But for the average player with an average amount of time available for chess studies, it is important to pick the right battles. This is where our weapon, the Chameleon Sicilian, comes in handy. It proposes a very flexible way for White to handle the Sicilian Defense using the move order 1.e4, 2.Nc3 and 3.Nge2.

Miniatures in the Main Line Ruy Lopez

Miniatures in the Main Line Ruy Lopez

Publisher:Russell Enterprises

Author:Carsten Hansen

Price:  **$9.99

Contents:196 pages

Release Date: June 2017

Book Description:The lines covered in this book, the Ruy Lopez Main Lines, arise (with a few exceptions for move order and such) after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 a6 4 Ba4 Nf6 5 0-0. Some of the lines are incredibly theoretical, but rather than burden you with a ton of theory in lines you will have limited chance of using in your own games, the emphasis is on the lines that are more likely to occur in your games. Those lines will be in chapters 3 and 4, the two longest chapters of the book. This book is by no means an all-encompassing theory work, which means that there is a lot of theory that is not discussed in the notes. This is of course intentional. The book is written to entertain and inspire. If you find some lines that you like, you are encouraged to dive deeper into those lines before using them in your own games.

Publisher:Russell Enterprises

Author:Carsten Hansen

Price:  **$9.99

Contents:245 pages

Release Date: June 2016

Book Description:The subject of this book is the Fianchetto Variation of the Queen’s Indian Defense, which arises after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 b6 4.g3.

The Queen’s Indian as a whole has been played consistently since its invention by Aron Nimzowitsch in the early years of the 20th century and it remains a very popular opening at all levels. While its foundation is solid, things can quickly become very sharp and heavy on theory, particularly when Black plays 4…Ba6.
