Download PDF Play 1...d6 Against Everything by Erik Zude and published by New In Chess. This book was released on 2017-10-01 with total page 207 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The average club player doesn’t need to study hundreds of pages of chess opening theory. Understanding structures and finding tactics are much more important than memorizing variations. Renowned German chess trainers Erik Zude and Jörg Hickl have created an ideal club player’s repertoire for Black. This compact manual presents a set of lines that is conveniently limited in scope, yet varied, solid and complete. The core repertoire is based on lines that the authors have successfully played at (grand)master level for decades: the Antoshin Variation of the Philidor Defence against 1.e4 and the Old-Indian Defence against 1.d4. There is only a limited number of plans, ideas and structures that you need to learn, and very few forcing variations. You will develop your position with a sequence of strong standard moves and start your highly effective counterplay. Zude and Hickl provide common sense guidance, explain all typical characteristics and give practical examples. If you have an Elo rating between 1400 and 2200, you don’t need to look further because you can Play 1..d6 Against Everything!

Download PDF Our Boys by Joe Drape and published by Macmillan. This book was released on 2009-08-18 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An inspiring portrait of the extraordinary high-school football team whose quest for perfection sustains its hometown in the heartland The football team in Smith Center, Kansas, has won sixty-seven games in a row, the nation's longest high-school winning streak. They have done so by embracing a philosophy of life taught by their legendary coach, Roger Barta: "Respect each other, then learn to love each other and together we are champions." But as they embarked on a quest for a fifth consecutive title in the fall of 2008, they faced a potentially destabilizing transition: the greatest senior class in school history had graduated, and Barta was contemplating retirement after three decades on the sidelines. In Smith Center—population: 1,931—this changing of the guard was seismic. Hours removed from the nearest city, the town revolves around "our boys" in a way that goes to the heart of what America's heartland is today. Joe Drape, a Kansas City native and an award-winning sportswriter for The New York Times, moved his family to Smith Center to discover what makes the team and the town an inspiration even to those who live hundreds of miles away. His stories of the coaches, players, and parents reveal a community fighting to hold on to a way of life that is rich in value, even as its economic fortunes decline. Drape's moving portrait of Coach Barta and the impressive young men of Smith Center is sure to take its place among the more memorable American sports stories of recent years.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this series of books, Jerome Berryman doesn't make any universal claims, such as "Everyone should do Godly Play, and this is exactly how they should do it." Godly Play isn't something that everyone can or should do. You will need to practice these lessons, use them with children, reflect on them and do them some more before they will be yours. This is especially important, since all we can really teach the children is how to enter the language to be more fully in God's presence. How can you explain that? You have to show it. In Volume 1 of The Complete Guide to Godly Play, Jerome Berryman provides many opportunities for you to practice and reflect on this art. What's inside Volume 1: How to Lead Godly Play Lessons? You'll find what you need here to enter into the most rewarding play of all: Godly Play. Chapter 1: What is Godly Play?
