Cyrus LakdawalaSample pages (pdf)
In this book, Cyrus Lakdawala examines the universally popular Slav Defence (1.d4,d5; 2.c4,c6) which has been his main choice against 1.d4 for many years. In the nine chapters of this book he shares his experience and knowledge of his favourite opening, presents a repertoire for Black and provides answers to all the key questions. He also shows how to play Slav lines for Black against the Reti Opening and King's Indian Attack.
Cyrus Lakdawala is an International Master, a former National Open and American Open Champion, and a six-time State Champion. He has been teaching chess for 30 years.
The "Move-by-Move" format provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, "Move by Move" greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved, and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general opening skills and knowledge.
