Alexander Raetsky & Maxim ChetverikSample pages (pdf)
The authors unleash eleven unusual opening lines for you to try in your own games! There are ten recommendations for Black and one for White in this worthy addition to the "Dangerous Weapons" and "Secrets of Opening Surprises" genre, including the St George Defence, Albin Countergambit, Chigorin Defence and new ideas in the French, Alekhine and Scandinavian defences.
Using key illustrative games (many previously unpublished), the authors present a host of surprising and accessible opening ideas. Never refuted, these openings have numbered World Champions among their victims.
Grandmaster Alexander Raetsky and International Master Maxim Chetverik have collaborated on many opening books. Their previous works have featured excellent, clear explanations of the ideas behind the chess openings, and have given them a worldwide reputation as top authors.
