  1. * CT-ART
    For under 10 bucks, one can buy Maxim Blokh's CT-art for your smart phone. This will keep you busy and sharp for a few years. A great bargain. I created this collection to highlight what moves got them to the tactical turning point.

  4. 100 Chess Masters Trade Secrets -Soltis
    Games from an instructive book I own. I think this is one of Soltis better books. It consists of 4 sections of priyomes-1) 25 Key Priyomes 2) 25 Must know endgame techniques 3) 25 crucial sacrifices 4) 25 exact endings.

    If you like this sort of thing, it is worth picking up or suggesting to your public library to add it to their collection. (Coach K started a collection on this which I am working to fill in some of the blanks; thanks Coach K).

  16. Art of Attack in Chess Vladamir Vukovic & Chess
    I am slowly creating this collection as I read it with page numbers associated with the recent Nunn Algebraic edition . The current collections on this book in Chessgames.com are missing a handful of games. I am sending in games complete scores for publication as I find them. I am currently reading this book and invite others to join along.

    http://takchess.blogspot.com/2007/1... (2018 note: I appeared to have fizzled out on this) I also added games from VV book "Chess Sacrifices"

    I find myself often looking at Timothy Glenn Forney's collection's so I put a link here for my easy access.

  19. Attacking Manual Volume 1 - Basic Principles - A
    Games from Jacob Aagaard's Quality Chess Book The Attacking Manual 1-Basic Principles. These two books are his attempt to teach everything about Attacking Chess. Volume 1 is on Dynamics while Volume 2 is about tactics. His attempt to write a Vukovic type Art of Attack Book with clearer thinking/writing and modern ideas. This is a working book and includes diagrams to study Stoyko style. Entertaining Annotations. Recommended!

    His Concepts by Chapters

    1) Bring All Your Toys to the Nursery-include all your pieces in your attack

    2) Don't Lose your Breath-Momentum

    3) Add Some Color to your Play -Colour Schemes

    4) Size Matters- Numbers over Size(material worth)

    5) Hit 'em where it hurts - attack the weakness point in your opponents position

    6) Chewing on Granite - attack the strongest point in your opponents position

    7) Evolution and Revolution -( build-fight-build-fight)

    Manual 1 speaks to Aagaard's ideas around Attacking the King with each chapter discussing an idea and illustrative games to support them. An introductory sample is found here

    also: The Chessgame link to the Volume 2 - collection Game Collection: Attacking Manual Volume 2- Aagaard

  20. Attacking Manual Volume 2- Aagaard
    Aagaard meant this volume to be a followup to The Art of Attack but with modern games and clearer writing. A great book worthy of lengthy study.
