The Italian Renaissance – Published August 26 – Excerpts now

July 30th, 2020 7 comments

Both volumes of The Italian Renaissance by Martyn Kravtsiv – Move Orders, Tricks & Alternatives and The Main Lines –will be published on August 26.

Volume I covers the Bishop’s Opening (1.e4 e5 2.Bc4) and the Petroff Defence (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6). An excerpt is here.

Volume II covers the Italian Game (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4). An excerpt is here.

Taken together, these books show how White can challenge 1.e4 e5 with lots of creative new Italian ideas. I edited these books, so I know how much amazing chess they contain – plenty of Ukrainian GM human cleverness, not just deep computer analysis.

I hope you like them when you see them, with the two excerpts now just a brief taster.

Cover: Boris Gelfand – Decision making in Major Piece Endings

We know we just published some amazing books, but the work never stops here in Quality Chess. Of course, I am not an editor. My contribution is different and I do love the process of creating covers for these amazing books. Special thanks to©️ChessBase India/Amruta Mokal for the photo.

If everything goes according to plan, in September you will be able to get both the two new Gelfand books. For those of you that this is the first time hearing about these books, click here for the Decision making in Major Piece Endings and here for the Technical Decision Making in Chess.

Free ‘Book of the Month’ – July and August

July 2nd, 2020 No comments

We are continuing our free-fourth-book offer – if you buy three books or more and live in the normal European Union zone (as defined by UPS – for example, they exclude some islands and remote areas) we will send you an extra book free. This seems like a good time for a reminder that we will publish three new titles on July 15.

Please note that if you buy a Special Offer and are in the EU zone, we will add one free book. For example, if a European buys the Special Offer on our award-winning Grandmaster Preparation series, then we would send the 6 hardcovers, plus one free extra book.

The previous default option on the free book was The Alterman Gambit Guide – Black Gambits Volume 2 . For July and August we will switch the default option to Luther’s Chess Reformation. But if you already have that book, or would prefer a different free book, then send us an email to salesgroup@qualitychess.co.uk with your order, asking to have it replaced with one of the following titles:

ATTACKING THE SPANISH
CARLSEN’S ASSAULT ON THE THRONE
CHAMPIONS OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM
CUTTING EDGE 1: THE OPEN SICILIAN
CUTTING EDGE 2: SICILIAN NAJDORF 6.Be3
