Volley (Tennis)

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A volley in tennis is a shot that is hit before the ball bounces on the ground. Generally a player hits a volley while standing near the net, although there are instances where it is executed farther back, in the middle of the tennis court or even near the baseline.The primary objective of the volley is to go on the offensive, cutting the opponent''s reaction time. The opponent will have much less time to chase down the ball from a volley. Another consideration is that, by volleying, a player eliminates any possibility of a bad bounce from an uneven surface such as those on some grass and clay courts. Also, while being near the net, the volleyer has a wider choice of angles to hit into the opponent''s court.

Testbook of Opening Traps
13,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this book, which is aimed at advanced amateurs and club players of a lower or medium level, the author (FIDE Master Gerd Treppner, 1956 - 2009) has compiled 120 instructive test tasks. They are presented in multiple-choice with two or three suggested solutions. The detailed discussion of the tasks and their solutions follows in the book's second part. The chosen examples were selected partly from theoretical opening lines, partly from practical tournament games.Many traps are so 'primitive' and so easily avoided that the victims later (too late!) wonder how they could overlook something so simple. In tournament chess, the traps are usually more subtle and can be recognized as such only later in the game - for example, if the opponent has been lured into an unfavorable line by transposition of moves.Although the term 'opening trap' refers to the common use in chess literature, in this book it's extended to numerous opening-strategic and combinational cases, in which certain 'pitfalls' must be avoided that are not necessarily traps in the original sense of the word.

Sica
35,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The sica was a sword in Ancient Rome. It was the weapon of choice used by a gladiator called Thraex or "Thracian". It was originally depicted as a curved sword, (see the Zliten mosaic as well as numerous oil lamps) with a blade about 16-18 inches long (40 - 45 cm). The later sica blade (from late in the 1st century AD) had a sharp,almost 45 degree, bend in it. While early sicas may have been single edged, the later bent sicas were apparently double edged. The distinctive shape was designed to get around the sides of an opponent's shield, and stab or slash them in the back. Since the traex gladiator's usual opponent was the Scutum (large shield) carrying myrmillo gladiator, such a weapon as the sica was necessary to make the duel more even and exciting.

Skewer (Chess)
55,60 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In chess, a skewer (or thrust) is an attack upon two pieces in a line and is similar to a pin. In fact, a skewer is sometimes described as a "reverse pin", the difference is that in a skewer, the more valuable piece is in front of the piece of lesser or equal value. The opponent is compelled to move the more valuable piece to avoid its capture, thereby exposing the less valuable piece which can then be captured. The long-range pieces (queen, rook, and bishop) can skewer. In the diagram to the left, with Black to move, the black queen is skewered by White's bishop. To avoid capture of the queen, Black must move the queen, and on the next move, White can capture the rook. This is a relative skewer, Black is likely to move the queen, which is more valuable than the rook but the choice is still available.
