  11. Thought Process Errors by NM Dan Heisman
    $49.95

    What is "thought process"? It's related to thinking, of course, but there is a difference between thinking and thought process. In a sense, we can break "chess thinking" into three different types, each representing a different class where you may make errors. Let's put process in class one, knowledge in area two, and analytical in class three. The latter usually occurs at a higher level, but it's useful to know how errors during analysis can happen.

  18. Sicilian, Chekhover Variation (7 part series)
    $20.93
    Ronen's Opening Survey: Sicilian, Chekhover Variation #1. B53: Sicilian . The Sicilian variation 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Qxd4, named after the very famous Russian chess composer Vitaly Chekhover (sometimes also called the Hungarian Variation), is an interesting alternative for white to avoid many of the heavily analyzed lines in the Sicilian. Oftentimes this variation leads to a more positional rather than complicated play. Recently the world number 1 , which by now we can say be the highest rated player in History, has decided to put this variation to work, and we are here as always to follow and explain this interesting and surprising line, that deserves attention at any level.

Panov-Botvinnik Attack against the Caro-Kann Defense - a line that can also be transposed to from many openings, including the Queen's Gambit and the Nimzo-Indian Defense. The Panov-Botvinnik Attack has a unique important place in chess lore. After Capablanca adopted the Caro-Kann, it assumed a status as the solid way for Black to escape attacking efforts of e4 players. But Vasily Panov, a Soviet master, theoretician and Chess correspondent for "Izvestia", took a different view of the situation and decided to test Black's mettle with the direct action of 1 e4 c6 2 d4 d5 3 exd5 cxd5 4 c4. Mikhail Botvinnik picked up on this and quickly formed it into a potent weapon that has since become the choice of determined king pawn players. Learn More
