Beating Unusual Chess Openings

Beating Unusual Chess Openings

Richard Palliser

This repertoire book offers some ideas for Black to play against unusual and not-so-unusual first moves. Against the English 1.c4, Palliser recommends the symmetrical 1..c5; whilst against 1.Nf3, he gives the alternatives 1..c5; 1..d5; and 1..Nf6. Other openings surveyed include the Bird (1.f4), the Nimzo-Larsen (1.b3), the Sokolsky (1.b4), 1.Nc3, 1.g3, & 1.g4. Move orders are discussed and sometimes more than one Black option is included to suit players of differing styles and repertoires.

The title of the book is perhaps slightly misleading as about half of it is taken up with the Symmetrical English and a quarter with 1.Nf3, neither of which are paticularly rare. "Unusual" has been taken to mean "not 1.e4 or 1.d4" so maybe "Beating the Flank Openings" would have been closer to the mark. As usual the material is well researched and organised by I.M. Richard Palliser who is quickly gaining a reputation as a diligent chess writer.

Published 2007, softback, 223 pages.
