    Catalog Code: B0409EM

    The Veresov Opening is characterized by the moves 1 d4, 2 Nc3 and 3 Bg5. It’s a perfect weapon for those who wish to steer the game into relatively unchartered territory and to set their opponents problems from the outset. The Veresov is a flexible opening and White may choose lines that are either positional or tactical in nature. International Master Jimmy Liew has played the Veresov successfully for many years, and in this book he invites you to join him in a study of his favourite opening.

Using illustrative games, he explains the main positional and tactical ideas for both sides, provides answers to all the key questions and tells you everything you need to know about successfully playing 1 f4.

    Every chess player, who begins his games with the move 1.e2-e4, should be perfectly prepared to encounter the move 1...c7-c5. Why is this opening so dangerous for White? The point is that in all the basic variations of the Sicilian Defence the fight is double-edged and often White risks at least as much as Black does. White is practically deprived of the possibility to simplify the position by numerous exchanges.
