Alexander DelchevSample pages (pdf)
This book offers a White repertoire in the Open Games with 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.0-0 Nf6 5.d3. The reader will find the first deep investigation of the modern treatment of the Italian Game and the Bishop's Opening. The variations you will find in the book differ greatly from anything published so far.
White can play for a win in a complex position with a small edge, whilst avoiding drawing lines such as the Marshall Attack or Berlin Defence in the Ruy Lopez.
The Giuoco Pianissimo is not what it used to be in the previous century, and even 5 years ago. Top players such as Anand, Vachier Lagrave, and other 2700+ players have introduced many aggressive new ideas in the last 2 years. There is still a lot of uncharted territory and Black's best lines are not established yet, or they are too complex to be understood by most players.
White comes out of the opening (and of the opponent's home preparation!) with plenty of pieces and pawns. That means, he has fair chances to win in the ensuing non computer-aided battle.
In this book Grandmaster Alexander Delchev shares his analyses and 25 years of experience without holding back important novelties and new plans. His result in classical time controls has been + 30 = 7 - 3 so far!
