Richard Palliser, Tony Kosten & James Vigus

Sample pages (pdf)

In this book, three renowned opening experts get together to take a revolutionary look at Flank Openings from both Black's and White's viewpoint. Focusing on 1.c4, 1.Nf3 and 1.f4, they concentrate on fresh or little-explored variations, selecting a wealth of "dangerous" options for both colours.

After 1.c4, for example, we have Nimzowitsch's 4.e4 idea for White and a line for Black in the Keres System (..e5; ..c6;) with ..Na6. The mighty Mikenas Attack and the Kasparov Gambit are overhauled whilst an Improved Lowenthal System and a means of Slaying the Slav are considered.

After 1.Nf3 watch out for Kramer's Gambit amongst other ideas, whilst after 1.f4 the authors examine Larsen's Antidote to From's Gambit and the Polar Bear Attack. Plenty of new ideas and food for thought here! Whether playing White or Black, a study of this book will leave you confident and fully-armed, and your opponents running for cover!

Dangerous Weapons is a series of opening books which supply the reader with an abundance of hard-hitting ideas to revitalize his or her opening repertoire. Many of the carefully chosen weapons are innovative, visually shocking, incredibly tricky, or have been unfairly discarded; they are guaranteed to throw even your most experienced opponents off balance.

International Master Richard Palliser, Grandmaster Tony Kosten and FIDE Master James Vigus are all well respected authors who are well known for their opening ideas and expertise.

Published 2008, softback, 253 pages.
