A Pocket Guide to the Chess openings

Product Code: B0224IS

img

This book is exactly what is claims to be: A handy reference guide to the basic chess openings, yet small enough to be carried around in the pocket. It contains everything that the average club or tournament player or an aspiring beginner needs to know to get through the chess opening with a reasonable game.

It does not contain the latest or sharpest lines. It does not guarantee to get you a winning game from the opening. It is not a book of traps or tricks. It just gets you a reasonable, playable game.

  • Mastering the Chess Openings - VOLUME 2
    For most chess-players, opening study is sheer hard work. It is hard to know what is important and what is not, and when specific knowledge is vital, or when a more general understanding is sufficient. Tragically often, once the opening is over, a player won't know what plan to follow, or even understand why his pieces are on the squares on which they sit. John Watson seeks to help chess-players achieve a more holistic and insightful view of the openings. In his previous books on chess strategy, he explained vital concepts that had previously been the domain only of top-class players.
