Chess Openings For Black, Explained (2nd Ed)

Chess Openings For Black, Explained (2nd Ed)

Ref: c2318

Product type: Printed book

Lev Alburt, Roman Dzindzichashvili & Eugene Perelshteyn

A revised and updated second edition of the best-selling repertoire book featuring the Accelerated Dragon, Nimzo- and Bogo-Indians, Symmetrical English and lines to play against less common White openings such as the Trompovsky, Colle and Torre systems.

Specifically the book advocates 8...a5 against 7.Bc4 in the Accelerated and Gurgenidze's ...Nxd4 against the Maroczy Bind. The move order advocated against 1.e4, is 1...c5; and 2...g6; to sidestep the Rossolimo variation. This sequence is also taken up against the Alapin Sicilian (2.c3). In the Nimzo-Indian the suggested line to meet 4.e3 is 4...b6 with ...Ba6 versus Ne2 and ...c5 versus Nf3. The authors also recommend lines against 4.a3, 4.Qc2, 4.Bg5 and the currently popular 4.f3.

In the Bogo-Indian they advocate 4.Bd2 Qe7 with Black aiming for ...e5. Against 1.c4 and 1.Nf3 Black re-visits the anti-Maroczy Bind from the 1.e4 section and defends with 1...c5 and 2...g6.

Chess Openings for Black Explained has a spacious, well organized layout with plenty of diagrams, various highlighted tips and memory markers at key points in the repertoire to aid assimilation of the material.

Lev Alburt and Roman Dzindzichashvili are both Grandmasters with a wealth of teaching experience whilst Eugene Perelshteyn is an International Master and pupil of Dzindzichashvili.
