    Scotch Game for White
    The Scotch Game is a solid positional opening which has been studied and tested in practice by the strongest chess players in the world in a period of more than two centuries. The idea behind the Scotch Game is simple and easily understandable. White eliminates in a purely mechanical fashion Black's e5-pawn which impedes his ambition to dominate in the centre.

    The Moscow & Anti-Moscow Variations
    The positions arising in the Moscow variation and the Anti-Moscow variation are in principle so different that I have decided to arrange the material in the two parts of the book in different fashion too. The part of the book, which deals with the analysis of the plans and possibilities in the much calmer Moscow variation can be compared to a thorough guide of the series "street by street".

    Fighting the French
    Nowadays the French Defence 1...e6 is one of the most popular openings in response to 1.e4. I'd like to suggest a new concept of combating it. White plays 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 and then deploys his pieces according to the scheme Ngf3, Bd3, c3, 0-0, against almost anything that Black may play. This will usually lead to exchanges in the centre and the appearance of an isolated queen's pawn for White.

    The King's Indian
    The King's Indian Defence is probably the most romantic response to 1.d4. It has survived the test of time and has been played at the highest level even to the present day. Black gives his opponent complete freedom of choice in how to control the center and just develops quietly within his King's Indian household, relying on his powerful fianchettoed bishop.
