Miniatures in the Main Line Ruy Lopez
Author: Carsten Hansen$9.99Publisher: Russell Enterprises | Release Date: June 2017 | Contents: 196 pages
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.**Prices may vary by country or platform.

Sabotaging the Sicilian French & Caro-Kann with 2.b3
Author: Jerzy Konidowski & Marek Soszynski$11.99Publisher: Russell Enterprises | Release Date: February 2018 | Contents: 144 pages
In the first full book to examine 2.b3 against the Sicilian, French and Caro-Kann, mainlines, interesting sidelines and current theory are reviewed. In addition, what actually happens in modern practice is surveyed. The authors are optimistic for White, and concentrate on the best continuations while trying to be objective. It is in that spirit that they conclude that 2.b3 is sound against the Sicilian, fun against the French, and curious against the Caro-Kann. In all three cases, the objective is to sabotage Black’s play, to take him out of his comfort zone.**Prices may vary by country or platform. Please consult the "store" tab within the app.
