Henry Holt & Co | 1993 | English | ISBN: 0805026290 | 130 pages | PDF | 13 MB

Traditionally regarded as a solid, but rather dull opening, the Four Knights has recently been completely transformed by the games of Nigel Short, Murray Chandler and John Nunn. Grandmaster John Nunn looks at this newly revitalized and effective winning weapon and presents his selection of the most theoretically important games. John Nunn is one of the co-winners of the British Chess Federation's Book of the Year Award for "Secrets of Grandmaster Play".

Endgames always look comparatively easy to play because of the reduction in the number of pieces on the board. But the techniques required are very different from those needed in the middlegame, and in particular much thought must be given to whether or not to exchange off certain pieces. In many cases, choosing the right exchange can be the winning move in itself.

Touchstone; 9th Printing edition | April 15, 1989 | English | ISBN: 0671656902 | 263 pages | PDF | 15 MB

In the first completely instructional book ever written on chess openings, National Master Bruce Pandolfini teaches players how to take charge of the game's crucial opening phase.
Of the three traditional phases of chess play – the opening, the middle-game and the endgame – the opening is the phase average players confront most often. Unfortunately, though, many openings are not completed successfully, partly because until now most opening instruction has consisted of tables of tournament level moves that offer no explanations for the reasons behind them.
