Winning with 1. c4

Product Code: CB0041CD

All you do is play 1.c4 and the author tells you how to beat any defense Black might play. His basis is a White kingside fianchetto followed by an aggressive break in most variations with a White d4! This is a complete different system than the author’s 1987 book “Winning with the English” where White plays an English system double fianchetto. You play 1.c4 and have your own dynamic variation to play against 1…c5, 1…e5,  1…Nf6, and 1…f5.

    GM Soltis states: "Every chessplayer dreams of finding an opening that plays itself. After awhile the novice player learnes this is an impossible dream. There are, however, some universal systems of development that a player can adopt when he has the white pieces." By combining three aggressive, easy to understand openings, the author delivers. Not only does Soltis give you opening analysis and ideas, each chapter has Middlegame strategy.

  • Winning with the Reti Opening Catalog Code: CB0052CD
    Smith & Hall: "Nowadays the Reti(1.Nf3 d5 2.c4) is a staple opening of many strong GM's in top tournament play. There is a steady stream of theoretical discoveries for both White and Black. In this book we analyze in depth the main lines of play in this opening. Often we give several good choices for white - just in case Black finds a "new move" in a main line setting. By thorough study of this book you will be well armed to outmaneuver your opponent with White, in the complex and fascinating pathways of the hypermodern Reti."

  • Winning with 1. f4 Catalog Code: CB0059CD
    With the Dutch Defense as Black having a revival at GM level, it is time for a rehabilitation of Bird's Opening 1.f4. The extra move White has makes a big difference. Soltis covers how White should play in: Part 1 :Black Doesn't Fianchetto His King's Bishop. Part 2: Black Plays Modern Systems Including ...g6. Part 3: From's Gambity(a hard gambit to meet - here is how GM's play against it). Part 4: Other Defenses Black May Play.

  • Winning with the English Opening Catalog Code: CB0076CD
    Essentially, Soltis advocates a 1 c4, 2 g3 sequence against virtually any set-up by Black. The rare exception is the response 2?d5 after either 1?e6 or 1?c6, when 3 b3 is recommended, although even here, the King?s Bishop does end up fianchettoed, but just a few moves later.The book maintains the same basic coverage as the second edition. It is divided into four sections: I ? c4 e5; II ? c4 c5; III ? c4 Nf6; and IV - c4, others. There are two basic systems presented in the book: The set-up credited to Botvinnik, with the KB fianchettoed, the QN on c3, pawns on c4, d3 and e4, and the KN on e2; and a variation of this, with the pawn on e3, with the d?pawn retaining the option of going to either d3 or d4, depending on circumstances.
