Book Description Shock Your Opponent with the Sokolsky!

Do you wish to surprise your opponents on the first move? Do you enjoy playing creatively from the beginning of the game? Look no further than 1 b4! With this aggressive pawn lunge White takes the game into relatively unknown territory and forces Black players onto their own devices. Those facing 1 b4 are not allowed to fall into the comfort zone of established theory; instead they have to think for themselves from very early on.

This opening has been seriously neglected by chess literature, until now. In this landmark book, Yury Lapshun and Nick Conticello take an in-depth look at 1. b4 and its many variations. The authors use illustrative games to highlight key ideas an tactics for both sides. They also provide a practical and fun-to-play repertoire for White, offering options against all of Black's main defenses. Read this book and confound your opponents with 1 b4!

Yury Lapshun is an international master and a winner of several important tournaments. He is also an experienced coach who has guided individuals and teams to national championships. U.S. master Nick Conticello won two Chess Journalists of America awards in 2003, and was named Organizer of the Year by the U.S. Chess Federation in 1996.

  • Dynamic White Openings Catalog Code: CB0016CD
    It's time to change your White opening or at least have a second one to diversify your opening system. No longer are the openings in the book called "Irregular" because GM's and IM's are playing them. Covered are the dynamic 1.b4!, the aggressive Grob's Attack 1.g4!, the surprisingly excellent Queen's Knight Attack 1.Nc3!, slow stuff 1.e3 and 1.d3 and 1.a3, & the disreputable 1.h4 & other white first moves.
