Tired of playing the same old openings? Worried about having to learn too much theory? Then this book is what you¿re looking for! International Master Angus Dunnington presents you with an all-new and attacking opening repertoire based on the move 1 d4.
The trend towards more and more specialization in opening books continues. Witness Los Angeles IM Tim Taylor’s latest offering: BEATING THE KING’S INDIAN AND GRUNFELD. Not too long ago one could find a complete opening repertoire based on 1.e4 or 1.d4 in a single volume. Now things have become more specialized and only a couple defenses are put under the microscope.
Catastrophe In The Opening is a collection of eighty-eight miniature games organized around the theme of "crime and punishment.” Grandmaster Plaskett, who is known for his sharp and uncompromising brand of chess, divides his seven chapters into:
The Grünfeld is a dynamic opening in which Black allows White to build an imposing pawn centre before plotting its downfall with a series of attacks. This ambitious, hypermodern approach is popular from club level all the way through to the world’s elite.
The English Opening is one of the most flexible and dynamic ways for White to begin the game, and it is no accident that it features in the repertoires of many leading grandmasters, including World Champion Garry Kasparov. The Latvian grandmaster Vladimir Bagirov has worked through an immense amount of practical material to produce a thoroughly professional and up-to-date guide to the most topical variations of this popular opening. This volume covers all defences where Black answers 1.c4 with the symmetrical 1...c5.
