      Mastering the Chess Openings - VOLUME 2

      Regular Price: $29.95

      Our Price: $14.98

      For most chess-players, opening study is sheer hard work.

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. Learn More
