Welcome to the Dark Knight System, a weapon which can be used against virtually every White opening! In the Dark Knight System, Black begins with 1...Nc6 and adopts a dark-square strategy. It's a potent mix of other openings, containing pieces of the King's Indian, Pirc, Scotch, Tango and also many independent lines. It forces White onto his own devices as early as move one. When forced to improvize, even strong players are prone to playing weak moves or expending their time and energy in the opening.
In this book, FIDE Master James Schuyler invites you to join him in a study of his favourite Black opening. Drawing on over 25 years experience with 1...Nc6, he presents a repertoire for Black, examines the key strategic and tactical ideas, and tells you everything you need to know about the Dark Knight System.
