Sample pages (pdf)

The Queen's Gambit is one of the great classical openings. All the world champions and elite players have played this opening - most of them for both sides.

In this book the highly experienced coach international master Andrew Martin explains the basic ideas behind all the different variations you can encounter after 1 d4 d5 2 c4. This includes the classical defences (such as the Queen's Gambit Accepted, the Orthodox Defence, the Lasker, the Tarrasch and the Slav) as well as the weird and wonderful (such as the Albin Counter-Gambit, the Hennig-Schara Gambit and Marshall's Defence).

First Steps is a new opening series and is ideal for improving players who want simple and straightforward explanations. First Steps emphasizes:
* the basic principles
* the basic strategies
* the key tricks and traps

First Steps books are based around carefully selected instructive games which demonstrate exactly what both sides are trying to achieve. There is enough theory to enable the improving player to get to grips with the opening without feeling overwhelmed. If you want to take up a new opening, First Steps is the ideal place to start.

Andrew Martin is an experienced international master and is one of the leading coaches in the UK
