A Compact and Ready-to-use Black Repertoire for Club PlayersSample pages (pdf)
All the average club player needs is a small and manageable chess opening repertoire. Club players don't have time and energy to study hundreds of pages of chess opening theory. And why would they? Amateur games are rarely decided in the opening.
Play 1...d6 Against Everything is exactly what these players need: a compact, complete and solid set of lines for Black.
In barely 200 pages the authors present common-sense guidance, practical examples, and explanations of typical characteristics. To be totally exact: ..d6 is not always in all variations played on the first move; sometimes it is played later.
* It is nonsense to expect club players to play the opening at grandmaster level
* The ideal Black repertoire for amateurs: very compact, highly complete, extremely solid.
* With common sense guidance and lots of practical examples!
* English translation of the German "Das d6-Repertoire"
