Miniatures in the Queen's Indian: 4.g3
Author: Carsten Hansen$9.99Publisher: Russell Enterprises | Release Date: June 2016 | Contents: 245 pages
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.**Prices may vary by country or platform.

The Najdorf in Black and White
Author: Bryan Smith$14.99Publisher: Mongoose Press | Release Date: January 10, 2018 | Contents: 162 pages
Despite the Najdorf’s great popularity and reputation as a theoretical labyrinth, Bryan Smith believes it is possible to play it “by the light of nature,” with experience providing a guide. The play is concrete and sharp, but original positions can be obtained fairly early. The twenty-nine annotated games in this book were carefully selected for their instructional value, their theoretical relevance, and – most of all – their esthetic appeal. Designed both for players of the Najdorf and for those facing it, The Najdorf in Black and White is a collection of creative and unique battles that you can use to learn the ins and outs of this opening.**Prices may vary by country or platform.
