A Cunning Chess Opening Repertoire for White (Paperback)
In this bo...
In this book, highly experienced chess opening writer Graham Burgess presents a repertoire based on 1 d4 and Nf3 with precisely those aims. Blacks possibilities for counterplay - and sharp gambit play - are kept to a minimum. Our aim is to give Black exactly the type of position he doesnt want. If he is seeking blocked positions with pawn-chains, well keep the game fluid. If he wants complex strategy, well attack him with simple piece-play. Simplifications? No thanks, well keep the pieces on and intensify the battle. Gambits? Hardly, as we simply prevent most of them!
The main cornerstones of the repertoire are carefully chosen Queens Gambit lines, the Torre Attack (vs ...e6), and a variety of fianchetto options against the Kings Indian and related set-ups. Whites position is kept highly flexible, with many possible transpositions to a wide variety of systems that the reader can use to extend and vary the repertoire. The book features a wealth of new ideas and original analysis.
FIDE Master Graham Burgess is Gambits Editorial Director, and one of the founders of the company. He holds the world record for marathon blitz chess playing, and lives in Minnesota. This is his 23rd chess book.
