Chess Openings For White, Explained (2nd Ed)

Chess Openings For White, Explained (2nd Ed)

Ref: c2320

Product type: Printed book

Lev Alburt, Roman Dzindzichashvili & Eugene Perelshteyn

This is a revised 2nd edition of the heavyweight repertoire book for White featuring 1.e4! The new edition incorporates changes to opening theory and updates from the authors' own analysis. The layout and approach is similar to the companion volume "Chess Openings for Black Explained" by the same authors with an easy-to-follow layout.

On to the repertoire! Against 1..e5; they recommend the Scotch Gambit (2.Nf3,Nc6; 3.d4,exd4; 4.Bc4) and give lines against both the Giuoco Piano and Two Knights Defences. Against the Petroff you play the dangerous attacking line 5.Nc3. They also show how to combat the less common Philidor Defence, Latvian Gambit and Elephant Gambit. Against the Sicilian you play the Grand Prix Attack (2.Nc3, 3.f4) whilst you meet the French with Fischer's favourite 3.Nc3. The Caro-Kann is met with another Fischer weapon - the Exchange System. There are also interesting ideas to try against the Alekhine Defence, Centre Counter, Pirc/Modern and other rare defences.

Throughout the book the authors concentrate on systems of play which are sound at any level and give White a reasonable chance for an opening advantage. Their recommendations are very ideas orientated so you won't be struggling to remember reams of cutting edge theory.

Chess Openings for White 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. Authors 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.

Revised 2nd edition published 2010, softback, 542 pages.
