Christian Bauer

The principle appeal of 1...b6 is that it sidesteps mountains of opening theory as Black immediately directs the game into relatively uncharted territory, one where White players are not able to rely on their 'opening book' knowledge. Another attraction of 1...b6 is that it can be played against virtually every single first move by White, so it is a perfect choice for Black players with neither the time nor inclination to memorise a multitude of different defences.

Despite being relatively unexplored, 1...b6 has been the weapon of some dynamic and uncompromising world-class players, including English Grandmasters Tony Miles and Jon Speelman.

Here, in eleven chapters and four main sections, GM Christian Bauer offers an opening repertoire for Black based on 1..b6; through the medium of 82 complete, annotated games. He analyzes 1.e4,b6; 1.d4,b6; 1.c4,b6; and 1.Nf3,b6; in the four sections of the book, explaining White's various plans, how Black should counter them and highlighting the tactical and positional ideas for both players.

The author is a French Grandmaster and columnist with Europe Echecs magazine.

Published 2005, softback, 224 pages.
