One of the most influential books on chess ever published now in digital format. The Tiger is a vicious beast. He doesnt care about the aesthetic side of chess. He doesnt even care about making the best moves. All he cares about is winning. Do you want to win more games? Then become a Tiger.

The Hedgehog is a dynamic formation which has appealed to some of the most aggressive and interesting players in the world. This intriguing and dangerous chess opening sets up Black in an apparently cramped formation, but one with great counterpunching potential, as White often leaves opportunities which Black can use to devastating effect. A must for club and tournament players.

Moscow Marathon • The World Chess Championship 1984-85
by GM Jonathan Speelman and IM Jonathan Tisdall
1985 | English | ISBN 0047940220 | PDF, 314 pages | 101.5 MB

MOSCOW MARATHON is the definitive account of the 1984-85 World chess championship between Anatoly Karpov and Garry Kasparov. Billed as 'the match of the century' it became a unique test of endurance and ended in chaos and controversy. This book is aimed at the reader with an interest in chess and combines detailed scrutiny of the games with an eye-witness account of the proceedings in Moscow. No other record of the match has this combination of careful research and constant, on the spot reportage.

The theory behind the French Defense has grown so exponentially that it takes three entire volumes to cover it all; here is the first, written by the recognized master of the move. Former Soviet champion Lev Psakhis covers the sequence 1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 nd2, known as the "Tarrach variation."

Batsford Ltd; 2 Sub edition | November 1987 | English | ISBN: 0713456469 | Paperback: 160 pages | PDF | 7 Mb

This is a modest but good repertoire book – it recommends the QGD and a variation of the Benoni against 1 d4 and the French and the Pirc against 1 e4 (the idea is to give one solid and one sharp alternative against any approach by white). It includes a nice collection of games to illustrate the various white and black plans in each opening.

This book follows on from Kotov's previous work "Think Like a Grandmaster". It is a guide to chess-playing for the amateur player. The book covers positional judgement, planning, combinational vision and calculation and practical play - each with many examples. One customer from Amazon commented: "Kotov's writing style is very readable and his advice is great.His teaching is unique and very helpful indeed.The examples he gives are great too(especially see the chapter on combinations–it's mindblowing).This book will not necessarily make you a grandmaster,but I don't think you'll become one without it"
